Oh Look! A Shoe!

Drew received lots and lots of new toys for Christmas. So many that I've reserved most to go in the attic for another time. He is very loved. :)

It amazes me how quickly a toy looses its shine. And how Drew can be surrounded by toys and want the thing that looks new.

-My keys
-The stool leg
-My purse
-The bottom of our shoes, blaa!

He'll pass up all his fun toys for something he doesn't have.

We were born craving new. We are easily distracted by something we don't have. We long to look different physically, have new clothes in our wardrobe, sometimes we want new friends or make bad decisions to find new in our marriages.

But God is also a fan of new.

In His word He promised, "Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!" 2 Corinthians 5:17

Lamentations 3:22-23
The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness. His mercies begin afresh each morning!"

Each day He wipes the slate clean. He wants to make us new from the inside out. He also longs for us to desire Him over all the shiny, sometimes new things this world has to offer. 

I'll forever be amazed at how God will speak to me through the lessons & life Drew is experiencing for the 1st time. I pray we will always wake up thankful we are being made new by Him. 

"Every day it's true. You make all your mercies new."
