Dark Glass Ponderings

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. -1 Corinthians 13:12

OK, you may be wondering why after four months do I suddenly have a picture up at my blog?  Well, the truth is another website required a photo, so I figured if my funny face is going to be showing up across the web it might as well be showing up here, too :). 

As I've posted before I've been enjoying Hind's Feet on High Places tremendously.  In each place Much-Afraid travels she makes an altar and surrenders something to the Lord on it.  She is left with one of the stones on the altar as a remembrance for her collection.  She then looks on these and can see how the Lord has given her strength to make it through her trials and temptations.

I think if we are struggling with discouragement or depression it helps greatly to take out our stones of remembrance.  Remember everything the Lord has done for you.  When we think on the way the Lord has helped us in the past through our trials we can be reminded that He is in the midst of our trials now even when it doesn't feel obvious.

Psalm 150:2 Praise Him for His mighty acts: praise him according to His excellent greatness.


It's great to have a face to go with your name, now. :) I love picturing someone in my mind and then seeing how close my mental picture was.

I am a photo phobe. This is a rare pic where I actually have both eyes open :)
