Ben Bulben, close by
Ben Bulben, just a few moments later and few hundred feet down the road
Sometimes when we are too close to something, it loses all perspective.
Clouded, muddy, overwhelming.
Distance and time usually help.
Taking a step back, or two or ten.
Waiting for a day or a year.
The clouds will pass, and the beauty of the mountain revealed.
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning.” – Psalm 130:6

Looking through, onto, beyond
Forward rather than back
Expectant, hopeful, letting go of regret
Squeezing every bit of joy from the now
Breathing, living, loving through the passage of time

The walls are rough, time has done what it does
But the Light is sure and steady
The window calls out through the hardness
Come to the Light
The Light warms and comforts and illuminates
Time cannot touch it.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~John 8:12

Is it just me, or is time zooming by at the speed of light? Sometimes I feel like I have stumbled into a time machine unbeknownst, and have zoomed far into the future. 🙂 Yes, it’s October, and the challenge? To try to savor each moment of each day that God has granted me here in this month. To enjoy more, to be aware more, to love more, to not miss the blessings as they come. Pray for me, and I will pray for you. Slainte, Lisa
