I woke up this morning and described my emotional state as a 'love hangover.' Casey just laughed at me. I am filled with vivid images and memories from our day yesterday, as Casey and I had the privilege of taking my support group of HIV persons for an all day outing around Cape Town. I will spend time today writing about it and share it tomorrow in a blog, but this scripture sums it up pretty good. I am overwhelmed with thankfulness to our God for allowing me to know these brave, beautiful people, and to have them as friends.
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. - Ephesians 3:14-21
