“When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then they said among the nations, ‘The LORD has done great things for them.'”
Psalm 126:1-2 English Standard Version
Our good friend, Deb, found these toy soldiers in her yard. It was a rather painful time for her. A large sequoia tree had to be removed from her property. This wasn’t an easy task for her, but after a long battle, the tree was removed, the fence torn down and the ground ripped to shreds.
Among the mess she found her son’s toy soldiers long abandoned in the dirt.
With flashlight and camera, we decided to pose these soldiers throughout her garden and take pictures of them. It was a blast.
The Lord has done great things for us. The Lord has done great things for you. As God’s redeemed children we are set free to laugh and enjoy the life we have in him.
I hope you find your “toy soldiers” in the mud today and have some fun.
