A thought for the week.
This week in our life has been an unusual mixture of shadows and Light.
The unexpected and unexplained illness of our little dog Char-Lee has ….(we’re still waiting for results of blood tests_) brought shadows of uncertainty into our routine. We have seen improvement in recent days but still the shadow remains.
It was when I began to research the idea of shadows and Light, that I discovered some wonderful TRUTHS that really do apply to ALL of LIFE. (confirmed in the Bible),
It is only when there are shadows that pure radiant Light can be reflected. Shown in true brilliance.
It is only when we too walk, live or experience shadows that if we STAND on the ROCK. (Jesus) who never moves we then can focus upwards, to look for the LIGHT which never is extinguished no matter how dark the shadow of uncertainty.
This quote which is not from the Bible but from someone who was searching for an answer touched my heart and as I walked I truly saw His World more clearly and vibrantly
I came to a realization that this is my Father’s world; He will always SHINE in all that is fair.
In the rustling grass I hear Him Pass;
He speaks to me EVERYWHERE.
Maltbie D. Babcock.
Today, my heart resonates with a prayer for all walking this road of uncertainty in our modern life,
May each One truly KNOW the ROCK SOLID foundation of what their life is built upon
and shadows and valleys are all part of a potentially Glorious purpose if we look always for the LIGHT.
Blessings and Peace!
Faye, please keep us updated on Char-lee. A pet dog is a continual blessing.
Faye this is a beautiful sharing & it has spoken to a needed space in my heart. I pray Char-lee is well and I send you all my warmest hugs and blessings.
