Expression/Impression

Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.
 
                                                    ~ Christopher Reeve
 
Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.
                                                    ~ Colossians 2:8-10
 
Sand castles, take lots of effort, 
sink with the first change in tides
Jeweler’s wax impressions, soft enough 
to take the pressure 
of the image, hard enough to cast with gold.
 
That is the image that came to me when I read the scripture this morning.  So thankful for Jesus full of God’s expression, made in God’s image, the power of the defeated cross fuel enough for hope.
 
Because of Him,
Linda
