So often time it happens, we all live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key.
The Eagles, from "Already Gone"
Last year I posted about my friend Karen, who was practising carving chains. She began by learning with soap bars. Well, she is now carving spirals and chains from wood. Specifically, 2x4's. They are not assembled or put together, they are from one solid piece of wood. Since she loves carving them, they are chains of love. God draws us to him with chains of love as well. We are is creation, and he still loves us even when we mess up, just like a father does his children.
"Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains."
