There is something so sweet about discovering new things! I see it all the time in my little girl Elliston who turned 1 last month. Her world is opening before her very eyes…..including what her feet taste like as she has learned that she can suck on her toes. A trait I hope she abandons before she becomes an adult.
I was reminded of my own discovery as I was running this weekend. I love Crockett Park in Brentwood and remembered the first time Anna and I found this park right after we moved here. There was something so exciting about those first few weeks after we moved here – new running trails, new restaurants, new views of the beauty of Tennessee.
And then the deeper reminder.
There is something so sweet about discovering new truths about the LORD. When I was traveling full time it was fairly easy to discover new truths – I spent the bulk of my weeks hearing messages from various communicators of the Gospel – and I usually walked away with some nugget. And now the reality sets in that my schedule and occupation don’t ‘give’ me those truths – I must go and find them .
And so my work begins……
