Shadows

Shadows of the gospel and of the Christian faith are everywhere. We just need to look.

Yesterday M was walking in her walker towards me, but every time she would try to pass her clip-on high chair she would stop moving forward. The clip-on high chair was closer and too distracting. 

So she’d end up moving backwards from looking at the high chair. 

And then getting frustrated that she wasn’t near me. 

It was a gentle reminder that it’s hard to go where we aren’t looking, and a reminder that when the Lord doesn’t feel near enough, it may have been because our eyes had wandered elsewhere.
