Good Evening, God!
I have so very much to be thankful for, God! My amazing husband . . . our darling daughters . . . our growing grandsons. Our family and our dear friends. The people we interact with . . . humans are mostly good folks.
I had a thought come to me yesterday — while I was swimming with the giant school of little fish — that has stretched my heart. I was looking at the fish. And I noticed that while pale they did have colors . . . a thin yellow line down the side and other subtle shadings. I, of course, couldn’t begin to tell one fish from another. But then I thought — God knows them all by name!
I laughed! I really don’t know if You have “named” them, God. But, I am quite convinced that You “know” each of them and that they matter to You. I pondered that thought. You know the stars by name . . . why not fish? Really, this whole idea is stretching my heart and mind.
As Madeleine L’Engle said in a Wind in the Door — size doesn’t matter. Nothing is too big or too small for You.
Somehow, pondering Your love for each little fish helped me come a little closer to the height and depth of Your LOVE . . . You ARE Love! And I am THANKFUL.
