Thoughtful Thursday

 
"Remember He is the artist and you are only the picture.
You can't see it.  So quietly submit to be painted - i.e., keep 
fufilling all the obvious duties of your station (you really know quite well enough what they are!), asking forgiveness for each failure and then leaving it alone.
You are in the right way.
Walk - don't keep looking at it."

- C.S. Lewis

I pray your heart was encouraged
May each of you have a very blessed Thursday!


~ Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.  James 4:8 ~

Beautiful words and photo! I wish I lived close enough for you to teach me how to use my new camera. It came earlier in the week and I am quite intimidated by it. Good thing I ordered a book to help me figure it all out. I've only used a point and shoot so I have a lot to learn. By the way, what is that lovely flower called? Have a blessed and delightful day.

Hugs, Vicky

What an amazing picture of the flower! And I dearly love that quote of CS Lewis! Continue to do what we know is right, even if we can't see all the details, or know why... just keep going. Beautiful perspective! May the Lord continue to bless you and keep you in all you do :) Many hugs sent halfway around the world to you :)

Your photographs are amazing! What an amazing landscape. I really love that black and white tunnel photo. It should be hung on a wall. Thank you so much for visiting me, Kelly-Anne. You are so talented. xoox Su
