Luke 3:22 The Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”
I think of Anne’s clear vision of possibility and potential when I read Luke’s account of all the people John baptized, culminating with the baptism of Jesus. I think about how baptism washes away the mud and mess of our flawed humanity and allows our spirits to blossom.
God sees our possibilities and knows there is a beautiful flower within each of us, ready to burst into bloom with the help of a little grace, and God is well pleased.
