Twenty-Eight


Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and merciful.



"Thou hast taught me that
    the finding of this treasure of all grace in the field of Christ
       begets strength, joy, glory,
       and renders all graces alive.
Help me to delight more in what I receive from Christ,
                               more in that fullness which is in Him,
                                    the fountain of all His glory" (The Valley of Vision, 19).



Yesterday was an anniversaire of
Few knew;
No one remembered;
But twenty years ago,
The angels danced.

This grey April morning, I'm quietly, thankfully remembering God's grace in opening my eyes 28 years ago today to my sin, His holiness, and the sufficiency of Christ's death and resurrection for me.  I cast myself on His mercies--how could I not?--and life has never been the same.
