Meetings fill up a good portion of my days. I enjoy most of my meetings, however, nothing compares with meeting Miss Ellie five weeks ago. I can only describe it as sacred.
I know the word, “sacred” is rarely used in this era and in today’s culture. Where I come from, people list it as a girly word. And, some think of it as out of context with how we experience life. BUT. And, this is a big BUT; there are times when sacred is the only word which could possibly fit the situation.
The dictionary assigns a magnum definition to the word, sacred.
- dedicated or set apart for the service or worship of a deity
- devoted exclusively to one service or use (as of a person or purpose)
- worthy of religious veneration: holy
- entitled to reverence and respect
- of or relating to religion: not secular or profane
- unassailable, inviolable
- highly valued and important
It was a sacred moment set apart from the normal of life.
When Miss Madelyn and Miss Sydney came to meet Miss Ellie, I felt the sacred connection and knew God was in it. All three of these little girls are miracles and God has put them together for reasons beyond imagination. I’m almost certain that all of heaven danced to the words, “With God all things are possible!”
So, today, I want to remind you that God has a lifetime of sacred meetings planned for you to experience. Remember: Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37).
