In planning our sabbatical, we recognized that it would be difficult to find rest in our home, since our home church is right in our backyard.  And so we’ve headed off in search of rest, and renewal on a road trip that will have many stops along the way.  In the gaps between our destinations, we are fortunate to have a daughter and son-in-law in Worchester, Massachusetts who can provide us with a place to lay our heads between our scheduled sabbatical stops.

 Yesterday, we travelled from Belgrade Lakes, Maine to Worchester, Massachusetts.

 And today, we were treated to a grandparents’ joy:  Our grandson Micah took his first step.  Quite liked it too.  Kept trying this new ‘walking thing’ and, by days end, I got to see him take seventeen steps in one shot.  All with a big grin, ending with a sitting ovation as he landed on the floor and clapped his hands to celebrate his newfound ability.

 Oh, and of course we all applauded with him.

 I suppose it’s not unlike the scene recorded in the Book of Hebrews, Chapter 12.  The saints gather in heaven, and as the faithful here on earth move from crawling to walking by faith, a celebration unfolds - a great cloud of witnesses rejoices as we take steps of faith.

 Lord help us to join with the heavenly throng when our brothers and sisters take steps of faith.  Even when they fall, may we applaud the progress they’ve made in the journey.  And as we encourage one another, may we move from new birth, to crawling, to walking, to running, to - one day - flying in the power of the Holy Spirit.  And as we encourage one another in the faith, may God receive the glory.
