Window Seat   6 comments

Monday morning I flew back down to California to start the work week.  Here is why I enjoy the window seat so much…

 It had just started to rain as I boarded the airplane in Seattle.  I love this shot of the sunrise through the raindrops on the window.

Oh boy just look at what all that humidity did to the sunrise and we haven’t even left the ground yet!

The white cloud rising above the dark overcast sky made me think of so many verses that I could use for this photo!

 The one thing you must always remember when you are seated in the window seat is to look up. Do not just look straight out the window.  Get your nose to that window and look in all directions.  I would have missed this “Moonday” shot if I did not look up!

Here’s one of the songs I was listening to on my iPod as I was taking these shots…

Beautiful – Gateway Worship

Here, before your altar I am letting go of all I’ve held
Of every motive, every burden, everything that’s of myself
And I just want to wait on you my God,
I just want to dwell on who you are.

Beautiful, Beautiful, O I am lost for more to say.
Beautiful, Beautiful, O, Lord, you’re beautiful to me.

Here, in your presence I am not afraid of brokenness
To wash your feet with humble tears
O, I would be poured out, ‘til nothing’s left
And I just want to wait on you my God,
I just want to dwell on who You are.

Beautiful, Beautiful, O I am lost for more to say.
Beautiful, Beautiful, O, Lord, you’re beautiful to me.

Holy, Holy, Holy you are, you are!
Holy, Holy, Holy you are, you are!
Holy, Holy, Holy you are, you are!
Holy, Holy, Holy you are, you are!

Beautiful, Beautiful, O I am lost for more to say.
Beautiful, Beautiful, O, Lord, you’re beautiful to me.

And I just want to wait on you my God;
I just want to dwell on who You are!

That about sums it up doesn’t it?! Find time today to dwell on our Holy, Beautiful Lord!

Out in the Fields With God   4 comments

Out in the Fields with God

The little cares that fretted me,
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the winds that play,
Among the lowing of the herds,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.

The fears of what may come to pass,
I cast them all away
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new mown hay,
Among the rustling of the corn,
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born,
Out in the fields with God.

~ Louise Imogen Guiney ~

1 Peter 5:6-7

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
