Squash

I am sending you visiting again today because what Ann Voskamp has to say is just what I need to hear and it is too good to keep to myself. 

Please read the excerpt and click HERE for more:

“The Real Root of Brokenness that We Forget to Talk About [or When You Want to Turn Your Life Around]

It’s after I cut the squash right open.

The two halves split and quartered there on the cutting board.

After the paint brushes are washed out, after the pawns of chess game are all returned to their squares, after the potatoes are baked and served, the dinner plates are pushed back empty.

The Farmer splits the Word right open then and that’s when I’m cut to the quick.

First, I thank my God” That’s what it reads, right there in Romans 1.

The Farmer reads it slow — what should always come in the beginning.

And Paul, he writes more, peels back the hot holiness of God. I hold it there in my hands.

These are the holy words that hollow me out.”

Day 149 of 2014, a day to give Thanks.
