Oh, oh, oh, and a song, too, since I’m majorly on this 50s/60s kick:
“One fine day, you’re gonna want me for your girl…”
I’ve been struck by this verse lately:
“God sets the lonely in families.” ~Psalm 68:6
Isn’t that such a beautiful thought? Incredibly beautiful. I, for one, know that in my own life, God has brought this to pass. I have been in valleys of darkness, feeling very lonely and far away from family. And He has been faithful, and shown me the love of the family of God in an incredibly powerful way. It is such a deep blessing to experience the fellowship of family. God cares so deeply and desperately for us. He is crazy-in-love with us. He wants us, and He takes care of our every need. Indeed…He sets the lonely in families. I’m not sure it gets much better or more beautiful than that.
