alive and strengthened by God's world around me.
I looked back at my footprints in the snow as I crossed a field to visit my friend & encourage her to join me in my walkabout that day. I was almost to her house & I could not wait to share this joy with her... the colors from the setting sun... the crispness of the air... the crunch of the snow under my boots... the spray of the power covering the hard snow below.
It all seemed so beautiful and simple in that moment. There's a part of heaven that I felt that day as I walked in the snow. My mind was reminded of a favorite Old Testament scripture:
"... God has planted eternity in the human heart..." Ecclesiastes 3:11bI arrived at my friend's house that day... and things had changed for her. Her life had changed... forever. And, some parts of mine changed forever that day too.
Reflecting back over the years & looking at the photo below which I took on that day, I am even more confident that:
When we come to a crossroads in life, we should quiet ourselves & listen to our heart.
