Devotions from Judy’s heart

Ann has a beautiful colorful bouquet of flowers on her table from Leif, and it is made up of many kinds of lovely roses, mums, carnations, cattails,  fall leaves etc. The variety and color  just adds to the beauty of the bouquet and causes me to praise the awesomeness of our creator.  It made me think of and appreciate our grandkids and how there is not one of them that is like the other.  Our 3 grandsons are so very much their own person and not like their brothers in any way. Joe is so tall and thin and rather introverted, Paul is solidly built and very artistic. Lars may be the smallest but not to be tampered with as he is strong and competitive. We love each of our grandkids and appreciate their unique qualities. How sad it would be if we wanted them to be all alike or maybe like us. I read just this morning in my devotions from II Cor10:12, “We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.”  Or like the Message puts it, “But in all this comparing and grading and competing, they quite miss the point.” Let us be ourselves and let others be themselves and rejoice in His creation!
