Rest in peace my fellow flyer, no more black dog after you.

Hope you get a seat up front.

I am lifted that at least I know money and fame are not the answer.

Sadden by our lost.

Prayers to Robin Williams wife, family, close friends and those who knew but couldn’t help.

IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #746 – INNOCENCE!

“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.”

IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #713 – Halfway to nowhere & you can’t pay the toll

Don’t you just love it when you think you know exactly where you are going. You see something you think you wanted to photograph. You work at it a bit and then as you are walking back to the truck, you look down the road and all of a sudden you realized why you stopped here….Matt Maher wraps it all up very neatly:

MATT MAHER LYRICS

“Rise Up”

When you see the road ahead
That you’ve been down before
When you’re halfway to nowhere
And you can’t pay the tollYou’re hanging onto mercy
Withered on the vine
With your feet on the ground, your head in the clouds
And your heart on the lineOpen up your eyes…

You’ve got to rise up, rise up
When this life has got you down
You’ve got to look up, look up
When you search and nothing’s found
My eyes have seen the glory of the love that’s here and now
It’s coming down
So rise up now.

When you’re told that day is over
Long after the sun goes down
And your mind it keeps on racing
At the dreams that don’t come ’round

When you don’t know how to surrender
Cause your whole life’s been a fight
When the dark holds you and you can’t break through
Cause you haven’t seen the light.

Open up your eyes…

You’ve got to rise up, rise up
When this life has got you down
You’ve got to look up, look up
When you search and nothing’s found
My eyes have seen the glory of the love that’s here and now
It’s coming down
So rise up now.
Yeah rise up now,
Oh rise up now.

May the light slowly fill in your shadows today.

“Little one living among the shadows dark
Waiting seemingly for that one dear true spark
Filled with love concern and grace
What sort of anxieties or despairs must you face
You shine your light as bright as you are able
But are met with brokenness of life unstable
Feelings of loneliness surround you each day Searching for someone, something to show you the way
Back to the joy you once knew days ago
Days that you remember but are missing so
Oh little one may you find your way back
To the heart filled with hope that you once had”

I found this poem but I do not know who wrote it, but it sums up my feelings for this day.

A WARM & WELCOME DOOR IN T or C, NM

Acts 5:12-16

New International Version (NIV)

The Apostles Heal Many

12 The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. 13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. 14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. 15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. 16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed.

…Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Yes, keep on knocking , but for how long? Do you ever feel that you might be rapping on the wrong door ?

This whole bible thing about “doors” has me puzzled and perplexed. So, I am turning my camera to doors. Hoping to find some clarity………..en theos……jim
