It all about the heart and mind …

This Son perfectly mirrors God, and is stamped with God’s nature.
Hebrews 1:2


Do you think we look alike?

One Saturday morning, my daughter, Karen, who was about 13-years old, and I stopped by a small local bakery to pick up a coffee cake. An older German woman behind the counter looked at Karen, and then at me, and said, “God liked the first one so much he made another one!” I believe Karen felt a bit embarrassed at the suggestion she looked like her mother.

Because of Jesus, I see God as a teacher, preacher, healer, companion, and Savior, not with brown eyes and wavy long hair, as pictured by artists.

Thank you, Lord, that during Advent we get a preview of what’s in your heart and mind. Amen.
