To Get To the Rusty Found Object On the Other Side!
This little chicken just had to come home with me from the flea market.
He sat silently waiting by my computer for a few months, but I knew what he wanted.....
He had a fondness for shiny things, but not too shiny...
Tin cookie cutter, backed by etched brass and hand riveted, cuckoo clock chain, rusty ball chain, vintage cloth tape measure, antique adding machine springs, vintage glass tube beads, vintage glass tag, vintage bus token, vintage key, ribbon.
This little chicky was just for fun, but a verse keeps going through my mind.
"Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how I have longed to gather you as a hen gathers her chicks, but you were not willing."
This isn't the entire verse, but the jist of it. The Savior is speaking of the jewish nation, but tells me that I am adopted into his family as I have put my faith in Him. My breath catches in my throat at the thought that the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, longed for me even before I put my trust in Him!
And He longs for you as well!
