When I woke up this morning, I saw the sun-bathe grass outside of the window, the dew acting like a prism throwing off the rays of the sun in multifaceted brilliance. I could not resist. Leaving the breakfast cooking on the stove, I grabbed my camera and crouched low on the ground to better see the twinkling lights. After a few moments, I have all of these to show my husband who wondered where I went to.
Somehow, these images, not necessarily the pictures, reminded me of this beautiful Bible passage -
"The mercies of the Lord that we are not consumed: because his commiserations have not failed.They are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness.The Lord is my portion, said my soul: therefore will I wait for him." (Lamentations 3:22-24, Doauy Rheims version)
Linking with for this week's theme "FROM ABOVE"; .
Peace of soul comes to those with the right kind of anxiety about attaining perfect happiness, which is God. A soul has anxiety because it final and eternal state is not yet decided, it is still and always at the crossroads of life. This fundamental anxiety cannot be cured by a surrender to passions and instincts; the basic cause of our anxiety is a restlessness within time that comes because we are made for eternity.
If there were anywhere on earth a resting place other than God, we may be very sure that the human soul in its long history would have found it before this. ~ Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
