“Sunrise doesn’t last all morning, a cloudburst doesn’t last all day, seems my love is up and has left you with no warning. It’s not always going to be this grey. All things must pass, all things must pass away.” George Harrison
I was greeted with this view from my yard yesterday morning. Such visual candy.
Enjoy the day, and this too shall pass….en theos †††jim
“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore
We have been so blessed with our weather (rain), cool temperatures, lots of bugs & butterflies, and some of the best southwest Texas sunrises & sunsets. This view was given to me earlier this week on our evening walk with Clovis & Grace. A little more than a block away from my home I came upon this structure and view. I have walked past a thousand times giving it little more than a glimpse. On this evening it was aglow in that brief gift of the golden hour and one just had to stop and admire. To wonder not only of God’s work, but what man had long ago crafted this gate. Before there was a neighborhood, it was his ranch, his land and I had never walked by.
Gates are made to both keep out and to let in. It let in a moment of wonder and reflection that now sits in my overflowing cupboard of life’s blessings.
Are gates keeping you out or letting you in? ††† en theos ††† jimwork
Oh Paul, just because you had a thorn in your side, did you also have to stick one in mine?
Our hearts are of the utmost importance to God. Depending on which version you look at, the bible mentions the word “heart” from 600-900 times. It is crucial to be aware of what we put in ours.
So, it drives me to ask, where is my treasure, and what does it say about me?
Seek your true treasure today. If it is not something you really treasure, don’t allow it in. ††† en theos ††† jim work
“All that is gold does not glitter; not all those that wander are lost.” J R R TOLKIEN
It sure makes me feel good that I am not lost amongst all my wandering.
I love Tolkien, imagine the conversations that he and C S Lewis had. Talk about wanderers not lost!
Hope you find some gold today ††† en theos ††† jim work
