As I ponder the mystery of Jesus for this Monday, I’m drawn to think of Jesus as relationship. Being one of the "thirds" of the Holy Trinity of God, the Father, Jesus, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Jesus is a part of the epitome of relationship. There is no beginning or end with the three-in-one. It is relationship at perfection.
This particularly comes to mind as we reconnect with friends and family this week in North Carolina. Relationships begun and continued from long ago, new ones more recently formed, and ones to come (our nephew’s wife is expecting another child in just a few weeks), are very important and it is so good to spend time with people we love. It’s wonderful to celebrate our past, laugh over so many good memories, and in most cases, pick right up where we left off.
If relationships on earth can be so wonderful and life-giving, imagine what it must be like for the Holy Trinity. And, even better, knowing that we are a part of that perfect relationship is amazing!!
And, speaking of relationships, it is our godson’s momma’s birthday - so a Happy Birthday to you! Love and hugs!
