The Way Things Look Vs. The Way Things Are

Things aren’t always what they seem.  I heard that saying so much growing up.  Wise words with much behind them when you really think about it.  The older woman who still feels 28 inside.  The “old soul” 9 year old child who feels more comfortable around adults.  The disreputable-looking man who is quite nice and safe, but no-one will get close enough to discover that.  The polished, attractive woman who is sour and mean inside.  Here are some pictures that are not what they seem.

In this picture, I appear to have a very short body and big head. No snide comments, please! haha 🙂

My son appears much farther away than he really is.

Jesus said once, “Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.” (Luke 11:39)  This verse really makes me think, because I know I’ve been guilty of this sometimes in my life.  Trying to polish up the outside and make it look good, while inside I’m full of not-so-attractive thoughts.  I am so thankful that God is still working on me, and He will never give up!  🙂  Be encouraged!  Slainte, Lisa

Stillness with power

You won’t feel its power until you step in.  Your feet move past the intitial gentle breaker, and you feel the water surrounding you and the sand under your feet.  You let your body float, let the water carry you for a time.  Your mind clears, your worries seem very far away.  You just feel the water, the sun on your face, the gentle rhythm of the small waves, and the weightlessness.

“Be still and know that I am God.”  (Psalm 46:10)  If I can be still and quiet and listen, I can feel God’s power and love for me.  When I am floating on His ocean, I am closer to being quiet and still than in any other place on earth.
