The Help...

I couldn't get this song out of my head all weekend....accept the version I was singing was

Come on Irene.
Was it just me?

Between the 24 hour coverage of Irene, aka Eileen, and people complaining about how flipping hot it is, including myself....

I escaped all of it, along with everyone else in America, to go see "The Help."

I had not read the book and did not know the story.

Among many thoughts, the main one was-

If God wanted to, He could and fairly should,

treat each and every one of us as hired help.

But He doesn't.

In His Eyes,

We are not His puppets-

We are not His hired help-

We are not His indentured servants-

Not even close.

"I no longer call you servants. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." ~John 15:5

A friend of God's?

Yes, You are!

Yes, I am!

I loved thinking of Him- looking at each one of us- and reminding us...

God- Thank You for Your Friendship. For freedom and forgiveness that come from The Same Hand.

In His Dust,
