Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. --John Milton

Close to His Heart

He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
    he gently leads those that have young. 
What is near and dear to your heart? For God, that's lambs and their mamas.

The passage beginning "Comfort, comfort my people" speaks tenderly of a highway through the dessert, glory, a sure word, Good News, a debt more than covered, the Sovereign LORD, a hand cupped with oceans, stars by name, wings of eagle strength.

And there -- tucked in the middle -- lambs and their mamas.

Gathered in his arms. Carried close. Led gently.

More? Read Isaiah 40
