Isaiah 61:3 God speaks of His redemptive qualities. How He can bring about beauty from ashes and gladness from mourning! They explain further that God can take something and grow it into "a planting, for the display of His splendor." Isaiah 61:4 talks about "rebuilding ancient ruins and renewing ruined cities." In this blog I hope to show how our family longs to be a "planting of the Lord" for "God's splendor." We have been "broken cities" that are renewed by God's love and grace!
