they are...

in the book of isaiah, God boldly promises to bring comfort to those who mourn.  i was looking at my little family today and realized that they are what He had promised.

He has promised to "...comfort all who mourn and provide for those who bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.  they will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor."  isaiah 61:2b-3

and so i freely choose to display these dear ones that have been entrusted to my heart and to my care.  can you see it, can you see the beauty, the joy, the praise that fills my soul?  can you see His splendor shining through?
