Oh My Goodness!
Oh my goodness is making eye contact with your grandkids from across the way and next thing you know they’re racing toward you with sheer joy and leaping into your arms.
Oh my goodness is realizing you’ve just met your friend’s friend…the one she’s told you about more than once, and said you really ought to meet her…and now your friend is in heaven and you’ve made this connection and it feels like the most precious gift.
Oh my goodness is your husband pointing to your neighbor’s towering tree and there are eight—I’m not kidding EIGHT—eagles perched in that tree.
Oh my goodness is an unexpectedly thoughtful birthday text from your niece and she is thanking you for sharing your love of books with her which is like thanking the tree for growing leaves.
Oh my goodness is the photo your friend Jenna captured with her own eyes and camera and posted on Instagram of a castle in Georgia (the country, not the state) which sits on the banks of a winding river in rolling green hills and there in the sky is the most exquisite double rainbow.
Oh my goodness is doing the thing you love the most which is telling The Story, and your son is doing the thing he loves most, too, which is singing about Jesus, and you’re doing it together for one perfect night.
Oh my goodness is Moses asking God to show him his glory, and God tucking Moses behind a protective rock and passing by and what Moses sees is
ALL OF HIS GOODNESS.
(Oh my goodness!)
Can you even imagine? So. Much. Goodness.
This is our God.
One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
