The Colors Of Love

I was thinking this morning of stained glass windows and how pretty they are, the older ones that are pictures, and modern ones that are just abstract patterns of color, and how their beauty only comes out when light is shining through them.... and it reminded me of our love

I think of my life before I met you, and its like looking at one of those windows from the outside.... there is color there, but its dull and hard to see, and the lines of solder between were weak, it seemed destined to become just a pile of debris.

But then came that day when I let Jesus come in, to take over as the Ruler of my heart, and things suddenly changed, the master Craftsman was here, and He could make a whole out of my life's dingy parts.

He dismantled the weak old structure, and polished up each bit of glass, creating a brand new window from the pattern He wanted for my life.

Then He took new lines of solder, not the black dark ones from before, but bright copper foil to surround each bit of glass, surrounding and making it whole.

When the transformation was complete, there was one more thing that He would do, He brought me to a brand new place, and in His wisdom and love, He set my window in a solid wall where it fit as He meant it to be - right next to you.

Now the pair of windows are always side by side, and now we only see from the inside, as the light of God's love shines through us both, filling our lives with glorious color, so bright and shining, impossible to hide.

I thank God each morning for this gift of love, the joy that each day is renewed, for the colors of love that shine through my day just because I will spend it with you.
