When Christ Comes

As a man rejoices over his new wife, so your God will rejoice over you.
Isaiah 62:5

Have you ever noticed the way a groom looks as his bride during the wedding? I have... If the light is just so...I can see a tiny reflection in his eyes. Her reflection. And the sight of her reminds him why he is here....
And such are precisely the feelings of Jesus. Look long enough into the eyes of our Savior and, there, too, you will see a bride.... And who is this bride for whom Jesus longs?
You are. You have captured the heart of God.

Brantley gave me this Inspirational Thought for Each Day of the Year and this thought is the one I turned to for today.. I was surprised at how it fit with what I have blogged about in the past several days. Of course I had to share.

What a great reminder that You and I have captured the heart of God! Is this AWESOME or what?

What an awesome quote and sweet reminder of just how special he thinks we are! Thank you for sharing that today; I needed the reminder.

By the way, if you have called my cell this week...it's broken. I'm beginning to think that all technology has it in for me!

And why are you down and withdrawn, missy? Cheer up! I guess I need to pray for you this week!

I haven't used my cell phone since Sunday night (and I'm surviving...ha).

I have enjoyed her company this week as well!

Love you,

What a great job you did at the wedding! You looked beautiful too. I will see you tonight. I'm looking forward to the 100 things you don't know about me. I will be praying for Andrea and YOU mostly as she travels off to college!

What great thoughts!
I have often wondered what I guy thinks when he hears he is the bride of Christ. I guess I am thankful that God made me a woman....it is nice to imagine Him looking on me in such a way. Beautiful and loved by Christ...what more could I ask for?
