(Whispers of Wisdom) Where I live, on a hill unobstructed by buildings or trees, the sky looks very big. I'm constantly reminded to look up for a sunrise, sunset, special cloud formations or varying colors. It also reminds me to look up more often than I look around me, remembering that the answers to the confusion around us can only come from above, from God our Creator. What He allows me to learn, I'd like to share with you.
See the sky and hills!
In Quiet Moments Here

When I took this picture, I was only thinking of the beauty that exists right outside my front door. In looking at it much later, I was awestruck by what a picture it is of life--so many things that we cannot see even when they are right in front of us. For me, as for many of you, it is "a reason". Oh, how often we wonder "why"! As another holiday is upon us, I so much feel the loss of my daughter. It's been 5 years since I lost her to cancer, and some days the pain feels as great as if it happened last week. To me, a holiday = Karine, and I know I need to get through one more without her. When we meet in heaven, the mists will have been taken away, and I will know the "why". Until then, I can celebrate the family that I do have, and be always aware of what a blessing they all are. We have so much to celebrate; let's do it well.
