But a Moment

 

But a Moment

In but a moment this backlit reflection was gone.

 

This photo was taken in the moment of reflection and then gone. In the moment I took to change the camera’s settings, a cloud deck moved in and the moment forever gone. What we see and experience on this earth is but a passing moment. Christ authors eternity.

 

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Mother’s Love

A Mother's Love

A Mother’s love is something that no one can explain,

It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,

It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may

For nothing can destroy it or take that love away…

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,

And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking…

It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,

And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems…

It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation,

and it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation…

A many-splendored miracle man cannot understand

And another wondrous evidence of God’s tender guiding hand.

Forward Look

Upward Look

But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.  So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.

Sing a New Song

Psalm 96

Sing to the Lord a new song;
    sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, praise his name;
    proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

Led Forth in Peace

 

Eastern Larch

Eastern Larch – Female Flowers

You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
    for an everlasting sign,
    that will endure forever.”

 

Isaiah 55:12-13

Freedom

 

Soon to be Free

Soon to be Free

This milkweed continues its life cycle only by letting go, returning to the soil to be buried, only to resurrect and bring life again.

 

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.  For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 

Galatians  5:13-14

See! The winter is past;
    the rains are over and gone.
12 Flowers appear on the earth;
    the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves. 
    is heard in our land.

Song of Solomon 2:11-12
