We are God's offspring.....

A.W Toser....."What I believe about God is the most important thing about me."

"We are what we love. If we love God, in whose image we were created, we discover ourselves in Him and we cannot help being happy; we have already achieved something of the fullness of being for which we were destined in our creation. If we love everything else but God, we contradict the image born in our very essence, and we cannot help being unhappy, because we are living a caricature of what we are meant to be." Thomas Merton, The Waters of Siloe

 "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:24-28

Not much time to post today, but I will leave you to quiet meditation with these selections, which say it much better than I ever could anyway......blessings for the day! Lori


  1. Ah! She says not much! But I am knocked out of my chair. There is nothing left to do, but LOVE God!

  2. We are what we love. Beautiful thought. One to remember.

  3. Thank you both! I have always loved the Tozer quote, my Mom has it on her fridge, and everything else just went with it......What a thought, that we have a God who longs for us to reach out to Him! Lori
