Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Inspired by John 1:1-14
In the beginning,
God made a family,
pulled us drowning from void
into light,

and if we could part darkness
now veiling stories first told
before earth was,
we would remember joy—

but also anxious questions
when we learned the path forward
meant some of us would slip away

What kind of parent sends a child
to certain death?
What unfinished soul wouldn’t pause
to weigh another offer?

How could we comprehend
in a strange world where night
would always follow day?

So in the beginning,
God gave us His Word—
eternal covenant
to satisfy the infinite

Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for January 21-27
