How many years have I looked upon the back of his head? Quite a few, to say the least.
Some of the details may have changed with the passing of time, but the feelings in my heart never change.
Well, actually the feelings do change. They grow stronger.
“…. seeing our Father in everything makes life one long thanksgiving and gives a rest of heart, and, more than that, a gayety of spirit, that is unspeakable.”
Hannah Whitall Smith
Jesus’s word from John 10:10
….”I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
Some gifts are harder to see.
Harder to find.
Hidden from view.
Perhaps that makes them all the more precious.
Sometimes in order to see the gifts all around me,
I need new eyes.
A different perspective-
Coming at life backwards-
Seeing from a different angle.
I love the color blue. I love blue skies.
All you have to do is look up and see such glorious color! How wonderful is that?
But that is the trick, is it not?
Looking up, taking the time to lookup and to see.
