What an awesome day it has been. After teaching a class this morning, my family and I drove out to Madison, VA to visit an adorable country market a friend told us about. Right now it is cold and raining outside, but inside there is a meatloaf cooking, two loaves of bread rising and an apple pie waiting to go in the oven. I love autumn!
Here is our reflection for today . . .
Your husband is your Maker. His name is Yahweh Tsebaoth. Isaiah 62:5.
Lord, you call yourself Ish, Husband to your people. I am amazed that you use this intimate image to characterize your relationship with us. Help us, Lord, through the power of your Spirit to be a loving and faithful wife to you. (Ann Spangler, Names of God Study Bible)
With perfect peace you will protect those whose minds cannot be changed, because they trust you. Isaiah 26:3
I know the plans I have for you, declares Yahweh. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11
