"Alone and Frozen"


Alone at Thanksgiving.  And very soon alone at Christmas.  Alone!  This is not what is supposed to happen. 

Each one of you on this Email list, yes, YOU are REMEMBERED at this time, because it feels like we are alone.

There was once a couple who played a game.  No score was kept.  There was only one rule: 

One named an object and the other person had to explain what aspect of God’s “being” or character was revealed in that object.  It could be anything:  A moss-swaddled stump of cedar, or voluminous cloud formations.  This couple had read Romans 1:20, “Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what he has made!

So!  They made up this game!  A game you can play with others, OR when you are alone.

Here goes!  What aspect of God’s being is shown in ICICLES and TREES?  Icicles are made as water drips off trees or roofs, and freezes in space.  They grow long when warm light beams strike it.  The icicle starts to melt getting longer and longer.  Darkness comes and it freezes solid.  The sun rises and it weeps, drop after drop.  The next day it weeps even more as the sun beams down on it.  It becomes longer and sharper.  When enough light comes into it, its form totally changes!  It breaks.  Frozen tears melt into a running stream.  Bleak winter yields to spring!

God was “frozen” in our time for 33 years and 9 months, in a human form.  But his heart melted.  It wept.  It became a river of Life.  Our Lord told the Samaritan woman at the well that if she drank His kind of water she would never thirst again!

Eternal Life had hung on another tree that reached all the way to Heaven, frozen in earth’s space and time with bitterness and cold.  Love blazed Light and all of hell could not hold it back.  “Drink slowly, Drink deeply,” the River sings.  He holds YOUR cup.  And out of it will flow rivers of living water to someone YOU touch with your warm love!
