beginning…middle…end…

Caleb has been learning to recognize  the beginning, middle and end of a story.

This is what he wrote the other day:

Sue is taking care of Drew. (Beginning)

Drew ripped the curtains.  Drew was crying.  ( Middle)

Sue sang Drew a La La bye.  (sweet Caleb’s  spelling for lullaby.)  (End)

I have no idea what book was read to Caleb and his class but I get the basics of the story.

The last two days these verses have kept cropping up:

 See  what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called  children of God; and so  we are.

The reason why  the world does not know us is that  it did not know him.

  Beloved, we are  God’s children  now, and what we will be  has not yet appeared; but we know that  when he appears  we shall be like him, because  we shall see him as he is.

  And everyone who has  this hope in him  purifies himself as he is pure.”

I John 3: 1-3 (ESV)

If I were to sum up this verse as Caleb organized  his story this is what I would write:


Helen was  faraway from God
. (Beginning)

God has called me His child because of His great love. (Middle)

I have hope. (Middle)

I seek to be pure as  God is pure. (Middle)

He will appear again. (End)

I shall  be like Him. (End)

I will see Him as He truly is. (End)

It is interesting how the key points of an elementary story  can parallel the greatest story ever revealed.

To merge the two…

God takes care of us.

We ripped the curtain and we cry.

Jesus died…ripping the curtain in our place.

God sings us a lullaby…beginning, middle and end.

The best part of our beginning, middle and end with the Lord  is that the end is really just  the beginning.

May you be filled with hope today as you reside in the middle knowing that God is singing you a lullaby all the days of your life.

If you are still at the beginning…may you find Him today…He’s waiting to let you hear His singing…a beautiful melody that is just for you.
