Cambree's first birthday was today, and I loved every minute. Pink was the color. She happily wore a crown, and she loved her first real dessert-cake. I'm not sure how she is already one year old, but she is. My little baby is growing fast. I love watching her cute little hands hold toys. Her mouth is so sweet when she talks. She brings me so much joy. It's amazing to think that I bring God, the creator, joy too.
Colossians 1:15-20 are the verses this week. "...all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." We were created for the glory of God. We can bring him joy. As I played with Cambree today, she made me smile. We can make God smile. We can have a personal friendship with the creator of the world. Amazing. Christ is not only the creator, he sustains everything.
I love this verse that says that Christ holds everything together. Today, we had a great day, but there are many days that I need to know Christ is holding everything together. So this week think about what brings you joy? Write it down. How do you bring Christ joy? Write it down. Last don't worry, but be encouraged that Christ is holding everything together.
