Reflections in the Lake at the Peaks of Otter are always changing, depending on the light, the time of day, the wind, and the algae in the lake. The clarity of the reflection is a result of the light and the calmness of the water. I have learned that my reflection of Jesus is a result of His light in me and my calmness/stillness before Him. Sooooo many lessons from nature......always amaze me.
It's all about the Light... The sun set, the sun rise, the shadows, the reflections, the highlights. Light is never really seen without the darkness. Even though the world seems dark right now, the Light is there and it is ready to explode on the scene. The One who embodies Truth, Goodness and Beauty is on His way! He has and He will again arise!

The blue mist, the ambiguity, the precipice, the edge, the sunlight, the mystery.... attracted me to this image. Acknowledging the blue mist of sorrow and learning to live on the edge, not knowing what is on the other side, living with ambiguity, becoming comfortable with mystery, and yet not fearing the precipice because of the Sonlight is the message of this painting. TRUST is a beautiful thing!!
It's a New Day; the Sun is Rising. You cannot see the sun in this painting but you can see its effects and feel its warmth. Our world changes every 24 hour cycle - the colors, the temperature, the humidity, the shadows. Our world has changed in the last 30 days enormously but Our God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Oh, for a 1,000 tongues to sing My Great Redeemers Praise!

"You shall be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots into the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes. It's leaves are always green. There are no worries in the drought. " Jeremiah 17:8 I love being planted by the stream of Living Water!!! Where are you planted?

"The trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth." 1 Chronicles 16:33. Can you hear it? Look at the painting and in the quiet of the breeze and the sunlight you can hear the song of the trees! In Luke 19, Jesus said that if we do not praise the Lord, the rocks and the trees will! Go to the mountains and listen to the choir below singing for joy; it is amazing worship!

Seeking God, His Presence, His Peace is the answer!! Peace is an all encompassing gift that is indepencent of all circumstances. Though you lose everything else, if you gain His Peace you are rich, indeed. Philippians 4:6.
