I am touched by the rays

Of a sun I cannot see.

Still, I am changed.

When The Storm Passes . . .

The threat of a storm lasted long, but now that the storm is over it seems as though it was quite brief.  How often do we find this to be true?  After it has gone, the beauty in its wake seems brighter than ever before  . . .

Here are some photographs taken after other storms have gone.  It seems there is a message in their beauty.

29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
   the waves of the sea[a] were hushed.    – Psalm 107:29

These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

(Matthew 15:8 NIV)

The greatest blindness is that of the heart.

I love this precious dog so much.  Here you see him joining me for devotional time as he always does.  If I become distracted, he knows “it’s time” and comes to lead me to our special place!

the Lord God made them all

Isaiah 11:7

The cow will feed with the bear,
    their young will lie down together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

The leaves fluttered as the storm winds blew

And seemed to hidetheir faces

From the menacing clouds

Yet, on the very same branch,

One tiny bird sang sweetly.’

The bliss of the spring
Is like Your love,
So refreshing to the mind

The warmth of Your love
Is like the sun, so pleasing
All the time

The happiness of Your love is
Like a deep well, that to one’s
Heart gives needed strength

The veracity of Your love
Is like the sky above, always
Near and very consistent,

1 John 3:1, See what kind of love the
Father has given to us, that we should
be called children of God; and so we are.

Psalm 36:7-8, How precious is your
unfailing love, O God! All humanity
finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.
You feed them from the abundance of your
own house, letting them drink from your
river of delights.

A favored re-blog.
