Daring to live life joyfully. Thoughts from a Christian Wife, Mom, Empty-nester, Photographer.
Love...photography, crafting, crochet, travel, mochas, many wonderful friendships, time with my family and God, unique restaurants, chocolate covered cherries, laying by the beach, holding hands, playing piano, beautiful music, the mountains.
Little did I know how I would be tested when I said I was learning to let go a couple weeks ago. My world has been turned upside down and letting go is all I can do. I went out this morning with Frosty to find storm clouds on the horizon and thought about the storm brewing in my life and how fitting to see that view at that moment. Like a distant storm, I don't know what's coming, I can't see how bad it will get.
I headed back upstairs thinking it would be a dark and ugly day, but when I reached the apartment, there was a glow in the windows. So, I opened the blinds to find the sun peaking through a hole in the clouds, and, there it was right in front of me.
I'm in the heart of the city, surrounded by tall buildings, so I grabbed my camera went back outside to try to find the rainbow that I knew had to be there somewhere. Well, it stopped raining and I couldn't find it, but I know it was there.
Isn't that like God, we can't see Him, but we know He's there? He will be there through our storms. I asked for strength to get through another day...and He provided.
Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.
I don't have to do anything...stop reacting, trying to control it, trying to fix it. Just Be Still!
He's our rainbow...
Our promise that all will be well.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we HOPE for and assurance about what we do not see.
