When I was a child

child Me

1Corinthians 13:11-12 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

I know that my Heavenly Father sees me just as I am. He knows me better than I do and since I have allowed Him to change my thinking and actions, I can begin to see what He is able to accomplish in this short story that has been my life. When I think of the eternal perspective, and what He is able to accomplish in me, I will have an absolute eternity to photograph His Kingdom. I will never run out of energy or wonders to see and photograph. Even as we hear stories of people who have been in His presence and seen wonders, I know that there is so much more to see and experience. I see so much of His presence here in the detail of all there is around me. And not only that but think of the smallest fact that everything we will eat will be delicious and also good for us. I can hardly wait.
