Grandpa looked out the door and smiled before going to the closet to retrieve his coat, gloves and boots. Once he was ready, he stepped out the door and began to shovel a path so Jack could go out into the yard to make a snowman.Then he bent to help the small boy roll the large body and head pieces.
For the next hour, the two frolicked in the fluffy white snow as the little boy and grown man created Jack’s first snowman. Grandpa patiently taught him how to shape each piece and put it together. Though the coal eyes and carrot nose were a little lopsided, Grandpa affirmed it was the best snowman ever as the two trooped into the warm kitchen for hot chocolate.
Did you ever stop to think how much it pleases God to be involved in your life? He doesn’t just let you alone during the growth process, waiting until you’re mature and perfect before He looks at you and says, “It is good.”
Because He loves you, He shows you his ways, exulting in each effort and accomplishment. You are the work of His hands, the very beat of His heart.
Father, thank You for investing so much time and energy in our growth. Help us to put our hands in yours and learn from your patience and love. Amen
