I still can’t get over how Oliver was born with a wolf birth mark after we called him Wolf all through my pregnancy.

I always wonder if it has some special meaning yet to be revealed. Is fate fashioned by influence? Or are we destined and so marked for our future? (Like how the prophecy might have been about Neville, but the boy with the lightening bolt scar became what he was because he was chosen.)

This morning I read the absolute and exact perfect verse for something I’m struggling with. I stumbled upon it somewhat randomly. It’s a bit fresh so I won’t go into detail about it, but sometimes I think God has the very best sense of humor. I think of Him with a little smirk and a twinkle in His eye. I can’t help but imagine and believe that God works in little emblems and through metaphor and myth.

And even if it is only imagined, Oliver’s wolf makes me smile.

Q4U Have you ever felt like God Is telling you something through circumstance? A symbol, a sign, or a verse just for you?

  1. Currently I have been really touched by Hebrews 12:5-6 MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD, NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM; FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES, AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES.

    Having a hard stretch at our house lately so it is a comfort to know that it is all for my good and it is a confirmation that God is still working in me.

    And sorry for the all caps =] It is how it copied over.

  2. Oh my goodness I love that! Today I’ve been thinking how it’s good to have my feathers ruffled a bit, because it makes me soft. Refiners fire! I’m with you, though. It’s so hard to be scourged! But it’s true…it means he cares, right?
