Stop and Read!

I did this painting from a remembrance of my youngest granddaughter at her 2nd birthday party.  She was wearing Dora flip-flops, and a ballet tutu.  In the middle of opening presents she opened a gift from her great-grandparents, a book.  With a pile of gifts still unopened she stopped to look at the book.  She paused for what was important to her.  We all laughed and were in a little bit of awe that a simple book captivated her.  We eventually had to hide the book so she would continue opening presents.

I must confess that too often I take the 'Book' for granted.  I neglect to read and even more treasure what is within the pages of God's Word.  It is his love letter to us.  It is a history book, a poetry book, a song book, a book of the greatest wisdom ever.  A chronicle of God's  plan for us.  It brings hope, and encouragement.  It breathes the Spirit of God who desires a relationship with us.

O, how I love thy law!  It is my meditation all the day.  Psalm 119:97

Stop for what is important.  Stop and read  His book today!
