When I glance down and see a penny, I bend, hold it tightly, thumb and index finger sort of focused on the texture, the gift of finding it.
Finding pennies changes the course of my day.
I regroup, feel a glimpse of angels, a nod of affirmation…
Keep trying, stay faithful.
God is good, has good for me.
His love is unending.
We wander, drift, forget or forego our faith
He brings to light our void
Causes us to long, gently, sometimes firmly calls us back, takes sin blinders and masks of selfish intentions from our eyes.
We find our way back.
Our heart, again beats for Him and we shine brightly, resting in His embrace.
His patient embrace.
We begin again, noticing pennies on our path and a longing to be held by a God who never lets go and believes in unending new beginnings.
His unfailing love, high as the heavens…and he removes our rebellion as far as the east from the west. Psalm 103:11-12
