Someday… | The Institute for Creation Research

Someday…

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to take a brief break from life. To pause and ponder. To step away from the busyness of consuming schedules and dwell on the goodness of God. I, personally, have much to be grateful for.

As a parent, I’m thankful that each of my four children came to know the Lord Jesus as their Savior at an early age, and they walk with Him as adults today. One of the most priceless memories I have is watching my firstborn as a three-year-old staring out the backdoor window. She was focused on the sky, mesmerized by the changing shapes of the clouds, and without even turning, she matter-of-factly said, “Mommy, someday Jesus is coming back on the clouds.”

What joy to hear her express her childlike faith! I know many of you can relate because you often write to me about the sweet expressions of faith you witness in your own children as they learn and grow. Thank you for sharing your blessings with us.

I’m also grateful to be working at the Institute for Creation Research. In my position as Director of Communications, I have the privilege of praying for you, our friends in ministry, on a daily basis as I work through the details of developing books, articles, videos, and other communications that make their way to your inboxes and mailboxes. Please be assured that we seek God’s direction as we prepare resources for you, asking God to help us form our words, meet your needs, and glorify our heavenly Father.

We have several new resources available this month we hope will be a blessing to you. Our two newest products will help you understand how God created us in His image through intricate engineering for the purpose of giving Him glory. As we filmed and developed the Made in His Image DVD series, we kept in mind one goal: to display God’s glorious design in the human body so you will be inspired to offer Him praise. God’s marvelous design is also detailed in our latest book in the “Guide to” series, Guide to the Human Body.

One of the most exciting projects we’ve ever been involved in as a ministry is our upcoming museum. What we’ve envisioned for years is becoming a reality, and I’m grateful to be a part of this ministry vision—to give you a place to come and discover how science confirms Scripture. We are in the designing stage, paying careful attention to the Lord’s direction with our resources and plans. We are praying that this will meet needs in your life and impact the hearts of your children and grandchildren for many generations to come.

Just a few days ago, my oldest daughter gave birth to her own baby girl. My second grandchild—what a blessing! I’m already praying that my daughter will soon experience the same joy I experienced many years ago—the joy of hearing her little one say those same precious words, “Mommy, someday Jesus is coming back on the clouds.”

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
