When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child.
But when I grew up, I put away childish things.
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror,
but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.
All that I know now is partial and incomplete,
but then I will know everything completely,
just as God now knows me completely.
1 Corinthians 13:11-12 (NLT)
[Yes, after looking at yesterday’s photos from Annalyn’s “big girl” party, I was feeling a little sentimental. I couldn’t resist using the one above from her first birthday party, but you have to admit, it does fit with the scripture! And, given our recent conversations about childhood dreams and grown-up reality, the scripture fits with this series. Boom.]
