delight with a purpose

Rapt were my senses at this delectable view…
If so much excellence abide below,
How excellent is he that dwells on high?
Whose power and beauty by his works we know.
Sure he is goodness, wisdom, glory, light…

From: The Complete Works of Anne Bradstreet

The Father delights to give good gifts to His children. Delectable-view gifts. Gifts we enjoy with sheer delight. Gifts that are then meant to turn our thoughts to the Giver, from whom joy and delight come. For if God creates so much excellence here below, how beyond our ability to describe or to name must His own excellence be?

We notice. We delight. We praise.

“O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!”

Psalm 8:1

About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and currently work at two jobs for which I'm very grateful -- part-time at my kids' school, and as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
