Cotton Candy

Right now (5:39 a.m.) the sky outside my window is so pretty. It’s like God took his hand and scattered pink cotton candy so the wind would carry it where she would.

only the upper part of this represents my limited view ... out my window as seen from my recliner

This is especially meaningful to me because the last few mornings we’ve been waking up to blankets of fog so dense that you couldn’t see the neighborhood houses much less the mountains and the sky. Yep, today is different – it’s brilliant! It’s beautiful!

Sometimes life is like it’s been covered with a dense layer of fog – all you can see clearly is what’s on your doorstep. It’s not that it’s not lovely but sometimes we get so caught up on our immediate surroundings, in our ‘right now’ that we tend to forget there’s a bigger picture. Not seeing the big picture can sometimes be scary … especially if you’re in the middle of  a questioning time, or if life is just too heavy. Sometimes the ‘not knowing’ is a good thing and sometimes your heart longs to know that even though you may be enduring a moment of darkness, the overall view – in just a moment – is going to be glorious! Life calls for us to be patient and tenacious with our ‘now’.  We must live in faith and trust that we are part of larger, much grander story than what we see at our doorstep.

Our Father is ever faithful in providing us with beautiful reminders to just sit tight, hold on to our faith. Like cotton candy clouds in the sky …

I love how God makes things – life – new every morning.

I got the camera and went to the upstairs balcony

 

 22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
   for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
   great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
   therefore I will wait for him.”

Lamentations 3:22-24

sometimes it does take our changing positions to get the better view!
