Good morning, Father!
Thank you for the awesome ability to work online on my Lenny, inside my own little home — yay! I know the wifi may go out any moment, but I am totally appreciating being able to connect right now, right here, this moment. Thank you for the time I had to work yesterday, creating the first new post on H.E.R. since the move south. Thank you for encouraging me, giving me glimpses into what I CAN do with my various different sites, and please guide me in how to use my creativity and time wisely. Thank you for the little hike through the rocky terrain around here yesterday, and thank you for keeping me and my guide safe, without a scratch on either of us. I look forward to exploring it more in-depth with you, faithful Shepherd — the One who made it and knows it most intimately!!

 
Romans 8:19-25 ERV

Everything that God made is waiting with excitement for the time when he will show the world who his children are. The whole world wants very much for that to happen. 
Everything God made was allowed to become like something that cannot fulfill its purpose. That was not its choice, but God made it happen with this hope in view: 
That the creation would be made free from ruin—that everything God made would have the same freedom and glory that belong to God’s children. 

We know that everything God made has been waiting until now in pain like a woman ready to give birth to a child. 
Not only the world, but we also have been waiting with pain inside us. We have the Spirit as the first part of God’s promise. So we are waiting for God to finish making us his own children. I mean we are waiting for our bodies to be made free. 
We were saved to have this hope. If we can see what we are waiting for, that is not really hope. People don’t hope for something they already have. 
But we are hoping for something we don’t have yet, and we are waiting for it patiently.
