Can you see it?
What in the world kind of a crazy photo is this, anyway?? I took this a while back from my kitchen window. Or maybe it was the sitting room, not sure. Regardless, there is a huge owl right smack in the middle of the picture. Do you see it now??
This morning I gathered up my Bible (I'm trying out the Bible-in-90-days and after three months or so, I'm into Deuteronomy.) my coffee, Max and the phone just in case it might ring. The sun was ever so beautiful after a most gloomy day yesterday. Of course, just after I'd gotten the chair just right, convinced Max to curl up in the lounge chair and opened up to read about poor Moses' 2nd attempt at meeting God on the mountain~ the sun went behind a large cloud. Of course.
Is there a point to all this rambling? I certainly hope so.
Mr. Owl was in the tree all along. The sun is still there, even when it disappears behind a cloud. No matter what I, or you, may be feeling today, God's love, faithfulness, kindness, goodness, mercy and peace are all still here. They - He never disappears. Mr. Owl may leave our yard. The sun may be covered by clouds. I may lose hope. But Hope is always present. Always.
And thankfully, God keeps His Word.
Courage, Friends. Courage.
