“Au Revoir”

When Jim and I decided that our lives would intertwine, we both agreed that “goodbye” was something neither of us wanted to ever say. It’s too “final.” It doesn’t say what we believe.

So, if you overhear us talking on the telephone, or parting from each other in public to do separate tasks, you’ll hear “Au Revoir.” 

French for “Until we meet again,” this phrase has a wonderful way of affirming, each time we talk, that there will be another meeting. Yes, we both know that life intervenes in ways that can interrupt our expectations for today, or tomorrow. We may be sad tomorrow because we must wait for that next meeting a little longer. The blessing in “Au Revoir” affirms life. Life goes on, and it’s a journey that takes us beyond what we can see.

The bible speaks over and over of life, before and after our earthly journey.

Psalm 139 speaks of God knowing us before we lived on earth.

16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

In the gospels, Jesus tells us that we can expect eternal life, and its our choice how that eternity exists.

Science has proved that life exists beyond our perceptions. A rock may appear lifeless, or even useless, but within its makeup is life.

There are countless people that have come through our lives that we look forward to seeing again. There are people who have moved across the divide before we could say “Au Revoir,” and we will joyfully hold them in a huge bear hug once we see them again.

To my friends, even if I have not met you yet, Au Revoir! We will meet again!

Space saving idea for promotional venues ~

This one I'm using to promote our publishing company...

I’m using this to promote our publishing company…and it’s latest work

Buy yourself a four sided photo box.

I got this one at Hobby Lobby.

You can put your photo or a photo promoting your business in the lid, save your older works inside, and put your four latest works in the windows around the sides.

Enjoying the beauty of God’s World

I love sunsets. I’ve always felt they were prettier after many years of driving at both ends of the day. Reorienting to a New Day starting at Sunset also gives me time to reflect. At this hour, I’m not in a hurry and can learn. I will rest, not from the day behind, but for the day ahead. In beauty…

Late Winter Milkweed pods. The pond has melted and the light is beautiful.

I love it when an animal senses that all i want is a photo. Stock still, yet still cautiously aware of me.

Looking to the east gave me a surreal photo, As if cutouts of the trees were pasted onto a grey canvas.

The colors of the evening began to scatter themselves over the western horizon.

Learning God’s lessons about colors at sunset ~

The sunsets are teaching me more about color ~ this is the eastern sky at sunset.

The sunsets are teaching me more about color ~ this is the eastern sky 3/7/14.  The colors of deep blue at the bottom topped with a luscious pink were too beautiful.

The blue is at the top and the red at the bottom in this rainbow gradient from my previous picture.

The red light from the west caught this log and gave it a special "petrified" look to it.

For most of my life, I thought the sunset with no clouds was kind of… well…”ho-hum”

A blessing in the sunset of the clear day...

A blessing in the sunset of the clear day… Ash Wednesday 2014

The rainbow has a special significance as a symbol of peace from God, given to Noah after the rain. Noah spent 6 months dealing with the rain and floods. From Genesis 7…24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.

So… How special is it, that on a clear day, the implicit promise of the colors of the rainbow show in the sunset of a clear day?

Listening to God can give some special insight! May He bless you richly this lenten season…

More of the sunset…

I loved my walk last evening (March 3rd, 2014). Freezing, but worth the promise of a sunny day. I added one in our header photo. I’ll keep changing that one since I have several that I love enough to put up there. Do plan to visit again!

This reminded me of something my mother said..."Every cloud has a silver lining." At sunset they turn to gold.

Earlier in the evening - Monday, March 3, 2014 The sky was filled with dappled pinks against the blue!

The entire sky was filled with dappled pinks against the blue!

As the sun sank lower, the colors became more prominent.
