8Yet you, Lord, are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)
Well, friends, the work week has come to an end. For my kids, this was their last week of summer as school resumes on Tuesday. COVID ruined our plans for this last week, but we are all on the verge of recovery, so we are extremely blessed. I have not been this sick in decades, and I can not remember a time when I felt this tired/weak for so long. This virus is a strange monster, to say the least. Completely unpredictable. While it has been no fun, it has allowed me to post on here for the last ten days. I am happy to help close out July with y’all. We only have five more months in 2021, and if you have been keeping up with the reading, you’ll be cruising through the end of the year. Tomorrow, I will highlight what we have to look forward to for the month of August. But for today, let’s just focus on this beautiful verse above, as the Prophet Isaiah brings his epic writings to a close and noting that we are all molded by God. God creates us all for greatness. Even in the most mundane occupation, God created you to shine, to be a light in the world. Let your light shine each and every day.
