The Miracle

While taking this photo through the glass window in my office, the light fog on the mountain brought to mind, "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: Now. I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." I Cor. 13:12

Dick van Geet, my Dutch neighbor for 5 years in Utrecht, and now good friend for over 50 years, said, “Some people come to Austria and say, ‘You speak of the beauty of the Alps?  I don’t see any beauty in them at all.’ ”  Dick went on to say, “They may come here 10 times, but they never discover any beauty in these mountains.”

(I can’t imagine how anyone can have scales over their eyes that keep them from seeing the magnificent beauty of mountains.  But, then, we are not all the same.  It might be a very boring world if we were identical in thoughts and feelings.)

Dick says, “It’s that way with the Word of God.  Some people read it and find nothing in it for them.”  As we discussed this, we spoke of how others study it, and a miracle happens. The Holy Spirit helps them discover God, grace, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, salvation…and peace.   I pray that you may be one of the latter who is now finding peace in your soul because you know…and follow…our Creator and his Son. — Anne

Storm clouds were gathering as I walked alongside the North Sea in Holland, Aug. 29. Gale force winds expressed my feelings as I worked through another phase of being Dan's widow.

Yet, God always reminds us that He is with us.

To the intentional followers of Jesus, He makes this promise, “I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20b
