As we continue to move forward counting the days until we can enjoy each other's company in ways I miss tremendously, we strive to maintain contact through phone calls and social media. Our daughter-in-law has blessed us by keeping us posted on the antics of our grandsons keeping us abreast of current events in their life. In addition, she will post pictures or videos of times gone by that always make our heart flutter when we recall the first time we saw the post. This morning we saw a video of our oldest grandson eight years ago dancing during a block party when he was between two and three years old. It was a wonderful way to have coffee this morning.
Remembering can bring up wonderful memories and reasons to be grateful. As we approach Easter Sunday, remembering what God has done for us should also make our hearts flutter with gratitude. What comes to mind especially is Paul's words in 1Corinthians 11:23-26 [For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was betrayed took bread, and when had given thanks, He broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also He took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.]
Right now it is tempting to start to remember all the things we are having to do without and the things we miss. Let us instead focus on remembering what Christ has done for us, what that means for our daily lives, and that no circumstance we face can alter the wondrous truth found in HIs sacrifice and in His love.
Have a wonderful Tuesday,
