Once upon a time a Pappa-to-be purchased a Princess Tent for his granddaughter who was expected to arrive nine months ago today. He knew the time would come when her eyes would light up at the sight of a pink plastic blob with flags on top.
And the Pappa-to-be was right.
As you can see, Brian went out of his way to make Princess Piper feel right at home. Oh, the things we do for love!
We pop a tent, sit inside to assure her all is well, and make googly faces just to hear her giggle. It delights us when she’s tickled pink (pun intended).
So why are we surprised when our heavenly Father showers us with divine delights throughout the day? The sun rises, soft winds blow, vivid colors abound, and birds serenade us in perfect harmony. God could’ve created a black and white world for us and we would’ve never known the difference—but He didn’t.
Oh, the things He does for love.
Romans 1:19-20 – since what may be known about God is plain to them,
because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the
world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have
been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that
men are without excuse.
