I laid on my couch staring at my wooden cross hanging on the wall. But since I wasn’t wearing my glasses the woodburned word was not clear. I knew it said “love”. But all I saw was a smudge.
That’s just like my forehead today – I spent the day with a cross of ashes smudged onto my forehead. While others may have only seen it as only a smudge I experience as a sign of Jesus’ love.
God’s love is great! God shows us His love even through what may look like a smudge.
