Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Roots and Wings

Two metaphors represent our hopes for our children as well as for ourselves:  roots and wings.  We need both!  And both are found most beautifully in the Lord.

Roots—Who I am, where I belong, who I connect to.

Let your roots grow down into [Christ], and let your lives be built on him. (Colossians 2:7 NLT)

Wings—What I was made to be, growing, developing, achieving my potential.

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.  (Isaiah 40:31 NLT)
