Imagination Management

Imagine they are strings of lights....

I just got in from wandering around the church imagining all the sounds and sights these walls have seen. I wandered into the sanctuary and turned on the Christmas tree lights and imagined folks gathering around lights this coming Christmas Eve. I closed my eyes and saw faces and remembered Christmas conversations in other places. Some days I love living in my imagination.

Other days I imagine all the things I could have done better, all the pain I have caused, all the opportunities I have missed, all the people I am estranged from, all the things I fear. Those days my imagination is my worst enemy.

In the reality of God's creative and creating love we are sent a savior. God with us. God for us. Imagine that!
