God always the real deal

(Continued)

MOORE —

For years it has been fun to select “pretty” or special holiday stamps.  With the automated machine it gives you options of different patterns of stamps but they are still black-and-white, not the real deal.

When you purchase stamps, the machine asks if you want the “Forever” stamps.  When you do, it prints the word, “Forever,” on them which means the price of the stamp is good even if the price of regular stamps go up.

Someone told us we could purchase “real” stamps at a local grocery store. We purchased a book and we were pleasantly surprised. Flowers, yes, in color greeted us when the clerk handed them over. They were easy to peel off and brightened the envelope of the birthday card we wanted to send in the mail.

I’m so glad God isn’t like the postal machine and the “fake stamps.”  He’s the Real Deal.  He brings beauty into our lives and we can always count on Him. He won’t abandon us for some new-fangled project He’s working on. He’s always there, and according to Hebrews 13:8, He will never change.
