Lent 14: Long day

The day is just wrapping up. After work, we went for an early supper date before attending the opening night of a photo show done by an alum’s husband. What fun to see his hard work and enthusiasm posted on a gallery wall.

My head is full of beautiful images. Cobalt water glasses on wooden dining tables. The masts of sailboats aglow as the sun dipped behind the mountains that frame Lake Washington. The funny acrylic paintings, modern mosaics, and contrasting black and white photos. The deep blue sky outlining the huge shadow-firs that hem the road home.

A world of beauty. A whole world of wonders at the waning of a long day. And a God of grace who made us with eyes to see, minds to understand, and a heart that longs for relationship with him.


God's peace to you today!

*How beautiful are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! Like valleys they spread out, like gardens beside a river, like aloes planted by the LORD, like cedars beside the waters. Numbers 24:5-6 NIV

*I have seen the burden God has laid on men. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. Ecclesiastes 3:24-26 NIV

*I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18 NIV
