November 15, 2017 God painted me the most beautiful gift. A day marked with sorrow, yet joy. Heartbreak, yet solace. Destruction, yet beauty. A day I was dreading not because of what the Lord did so graciously give me, but because of what He so quickly took from us.
This sunrise was made with me in mind. And I couldn’t be more thankful or grateful to serve such a loving, personal, kind Creator. I watch the sun rise every morning as I dive into His word, and as Brian said, He knew I would be watching. I knew it was painted for me because of the immense purple hues: lavender and even the deep, deep purple. Purple is Elle’s color.
The above picture takes my breath away and I couldn’t help but weep when I saw it because if it was this beautiful on Earth, how much more beautiful was it in heaven? I will always remember this sweet gift the Lord gave me in such a tender way. Oh, my precious Lord, thank you.
