Meeting in the Meadow; What's It All About?
Surprise! After a year of prayer and consideration, both Roy Lessin and I have come to a place of peace in posting together again!
Roy and I began working together about 3 years ago, when he had his blog "Meet Me in the Meadow" sponsored by DaySpring. When they "retired" his blog, we weren't sure what God had next for his writing, his archives, and my photography. We are reposting old posts, and sharing new writing, as Roy provides it, so it will be accessible online again. You can find it posted here, as well as on Facebook at the Marina's Kitchen Table page, and a new blog page for Roy called "Meeting in the Meadow."
We welcome your comments, and hope that you'll want to share the materials with others. As always, the writing remains property of Roy Lessin, and the photography is my own property. Please write for permission to share in any printed form. You may share on social media by keeping the attributes in place.
Blessings on your day!
What's It All About?
By Roy Lessin
It’s about the painting, not the frame; it’s about the treasure, not the vessel; it’s about His truth, not our opinions; it’s about His glory, not our looks; it’s about His love, not our niceness; it’s about His purpose, not our plans; it’s about His kingdom, not our agenda; it’s about His reign, not our rights; it’s about His life, not our efforts. It’s about Jesus!
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:6-7
