“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different…” ~ C.S. Lewis
Life is a crazy thing, isn’t it? I’m glad I have faith in the Creator otherwise I would be despondent more often than not.
I’m watching my husband battle cancer and trying not to worry. My children struggle to survive (in this day, it’s not easy for young people). And I, well I’m trying to maintain some sort of substantial livelihood should I be left alone. And who knows if that’s what’s in the future? When you get older you ponder on these things often. It seems, as it always has with me, that my creative outlets, even though a form of fantasy, are my real hold on reality.
That and of course my constant home in God which never changes.
All this and wrestling with allergies.
And then there’s the garden. The flowers, the vegetables, the fruits, the never ending pull to be outside under the sun, or the stars in the fresh air and gentle breeze.
Life is give and take. A gospel message of it’s own, this is the story of the grain of wheat, that must die before it can live again. A combination of gladness and sorrow, trial and tribulation which makes all the poets and artists of years past so accurate in their responses to it.
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.” -J.R.R. Tolkien
It is my sincere desire to pass onto you the same sort of nuggets I have found in other author’s writings.
