More Than Anything

"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm.  For love is as strong as death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave.  Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame."  Song of Solomon 8:6

This weekend was a whirl of emotion for me.  My youngest, Dylan, graduated from high school Friday night and was off to work at Carolina Creek Christian Camp as a counselor for the summer.  He will be greatly missed, and I don't believe I'm altogether ready for the empty nest.  But, as the Keynote Speaker, Brigadier General and Reverend Bob Page so aptly reminded the FBCA Eagle Class of 2018 in his address, "Eagles aren't made for the nest.  They are made to fly!"  It was a beautiful message.

Also finished up the book, Hinds' Feet on High Places by Hannah Hunard, and like the main character in the book who was transformed from Much Afraid to Grace and Glory, I was transformed, too.  I'm grateful that we're never too old to learn new tricks, to grow, to change, for God to do a new work in us and move us far beyond our circumstance--whatever it may be.

I love the author's quote in a poem she writes based on Song of Solomon 8:6 at the end of Chapter XIX, "Make soft my heart, in thy strong flame, to take the imprint of thy name."

Oh, that our hearts might be soft enough to relinquish our own selfish desires for His.

I'll leave you with a beautiful song from Point of Grace, More Than Anything.

Sweet dreams, Runners.
