We did the eclipse up right with certified glasses purchased six months ago. I did not accomplish this. If it had been my deal we would have been watching through a cereal box. Or driving from store to store in sad unprepared panic. I live in unprepared panic a lot of the time. People at church Sunday were lamanenting the lack of glasses. But my husband paid attention and researched and bought the glasses. He wins.
About five minutes before the grand celestial show he opened the pack and handed out the gear. He sheepishly smiled and said "hey, I didn't know this was a ten pack. We totally should have shared. Too late now."
The event was cool, I loved the shadows and temperature changes and watching my kids.
As I drove back to work I thought about those extra unused glasses and about the wasted opportunity to spread the joy. A little voice whispered in my soul.
"Mindy. You know you have unused words of hope sitting in your stash. Words people need to see the Son".
Oh. Yes. Words of Life.
So here you are. If you feel left out, in the dark, depressed, lost, discouraged or alone. Hear this.
I have good news. You are greatly loved by the creator of the sun and the moon. He entered time and space to prove it. He has beautiful timing and everlasting joy he'd like to share. It's quite the show. Don't miss out.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
