Celebrate & Anticipate

Fall is my favorite time of the year.

Fall combines a  remembering & celebrating endings with the anticipation  of new beginnings.

We recently took  a road trip to Western Colorado with long-time friends . Like us, our friends are  in the autumn of their lives.

For two weeks we viewed  the brilliant  fall colours & mountain peeks.

We  also viewed our past, present & future in the  magnificent light of eternity.

Thanksgiving

In Canada, Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in mid October; weeks before the return of winter.

It is a day of looking back as well as looking forward.

Our family has much to  remember , celebrate & anticipate this Thanksgiving .

The horror of  the devastating loss has been replaced  with beauty & the  promise of a bright future.

My husband & I have also experienced much change this past year.

We moved to a new home after 35 years in the previous one.

We have lost some old relationships & gained new ones.

There have been significant changes in how we do life.

We have exited one season of life & ministry . The dynamics of the new is yet to be revealed.

The temptation is to obey the keep out sign in the picture above.

We  can view the valleys & the climb.

We can say not again.

 

How About You?

What is your view of the past & your speculations about your future?

Up High 2

I choose to  keep my  eyes on the High places

On lands not yet seen.

I  begin to climb.
