Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying Hosea, and while I won’t go into detail here, allow me to mention that the turning point (where God promises to woo Israel, after all the whoring she’s been doing) is chapter 2, verse 14.
Kind of like a certain holiday which I love (pun intended, but also I really do), that just passed.
Anyhow, this Shabbat I enjoyed reading Robin Jones Gunn’s sequel to Finding Father Christmas (which is also a Hallmark movie, now), Engaging Father Christmas.
The quotation I really liked is from the proposal scene, and really reflects the Father’s heart. So, I capitalized the My’s in the photo edit (which, btw, features the ring and flowers He gave me. What a Valentine 💜).
