“I’m going to root myself in God”
She spoke these words with joy and determination.
That’s what I want, I thought, to root myself in God.
“We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.”
I heard those words many long years ago.
“How true.” I thought. How very true!
I chose to love God.
Who better to form and fashion me?
Now and always, my roots must go deeper, and deeper.
In God there in always more.
There are no limits to His Love.
Each day, I choose Him.
I choose to love.
I choose to go deep.
I choose to listen and to hear with my heart.
