We have seen His glory

The people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light…


And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death
Light has dawned


The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.


The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world…


And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,


and we have seen his glory…

And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace…for grace and truth came through Jesus Christ…(and) to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.


We, as believers, are of all people most blessed in this season as we celebrate our Savior’s coming.
May God’s light shine all around you and your family this Christmas season and then through you to enlighten your world.


“And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts…” II Pet. 1:19 ESV

I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of LIFE! Jn.8:12

[Meditations drawn from Matthew 4:16,  John 1 and a late winter’s day hike up our beloved Scout Mt.—LS]

Glory in the Fog

When the world lies in a funk of fog…


it’s good to remember that the sun is shining just above us.


Though our days be walked out in a sightless fog, brightened only by faith’s vision of future glory…


It is good to remember that God’s vision is undimmed, His purposes sure.


And all will be well.


Meanwhile we carry on– faithful in our allotted tasks…


for His glory.



“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time?  Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.” (Mat 24:45-46 ESV)

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face… (1Cr 13:12 KJV)

…we walk by faith, not by sight. (2Cr 5:7 KJV)

Seeing beyond the Fog…

The season for fog is upon us. Dense, cold, wet, unshakable FOG.
It can put a damper on your very soul, unless somehow you can rise above it.
Jim invited me for an outing today, to go see if our little Scout Mountain was above it all.
I’m so glad I went. It saved my afternoon from sinking into an abyss of gloomy reflections.
Here’s what we found!

All this fabulous footage is by Jim.
He took it in with his new camera, Louie with his nose, and I with my pen…
Once again we are given this living parable, that despite the fog that dims our view some days, God is still on the throne, His sun still shining. Though we may not see Him or feel Him near He is there, just beyond the fog…

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
Psalm 45:6
