Bacon sizzling in the frying pan;
chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven;
fresh cut grass;
summer rain on hot pavement.
These things stir our memories, senses, and emotions.
God’s words of love, forgiveness, and hope;
An image of Jesus suffering on the cross, for us;
A sense of His Spirit’s presence within our heart;
A wave of love crashing over us, flooding us with emotion.
These things stir our soul, and breathe fire into our life.
And I’m so grateful.
