Today after church, we popped in at the Harvard Café for a cold drink, and a quick snack.
It is a lovely little restaurant next to the runway of a small airfield. So you can sit and watch the private planes, and helicopters landing and taking off, we were lucky enough to see the pilots of an aerobatic show team Torro land, in their old fashioned planes.
While Kayla was taking Noah to see the aeroplanes, I sat and watched the people. Which I must admit is one of my favourite things to do, what can I say I am a restaurant stalker. There were two ladies sitting some distance from me, and the one lady was getting so agitated, and emotional that her hands were flying around in all directions, from where I sat she looked like a giant windsock with her hands being blown around in all directions, she was reliving an experience and demonstrating what happened hand movement by hand movement, her face said it all, it was almost shining like a moon, round and full of light, full of joy and laughter they kept high fiving one another when she was getting to the highlights of her story, the really good parts.
It got me thinking as Christ Followers we are expected to be different, we are expected to stand out, to be a beacon, a shining light. Romans 12:2 tells us to not belong to the things of this world, so how do we do that.......... how do we stand apart, stand tall wherever we are and I realised it all has to do with our FACE. As Christians, we have the joy of Christ in us, leading us and guiding us so what's not to smile about......... so when another stalker is watching me, what is my face saying........ I hope the love of Christ, that a have, shines through that people know I have IT>>>>>> and they would like to have IT to..... After all who else can say they are the Royal Daughter, Heir to the Throne of their Heavenly Father... whats not to smile about.... what does your face look like..... I wonder...
