If you could paint a picture that highlights your 2015 summer experiences, what would fill your canvas? Would it be picture of a cross with dirt/seeds, growing corn, and then harvested corn? That might be on the canvases of the 4600 LWML women and men who attended our LWML convention in Des Moines. Would yours be outdoor activities with family? Maybe your summer highlights canvas is waiting for upcoming events.
Unfortunately, every day our canvases are covered with the black of sin. But our heavenly Father loves us so much that we can start each day with a clean white canvas. His Son’s life, death, and resurrection have made us clean. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23). May your day be filled with His mercies and may your canvas always bear the cross. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24).
