James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. I love the view up here from the bedroom-turned-office. Well, office seeems too officious for how my days go now since I retired and Dad came to live with us. I am grateful to the previous owner who put in this wall of windows in this north-facing room. It's as if he knew I'd need a place like this for this time. It's a place where I can retreat, pay attention and listen to God. **** God, I havenâ€™t been outside much and I've missed it. Iâ€™ve been alone with dad this week and itâ€™s been Raining most days. You speak to me so clearly though nature But I know you speak to me where I am. I have learned to "Pay attention! Look up. Look down. Look around. And see what God has for you.â€ And then I notice the the mini blinds how they break up the view on the top of the window even totally obscure the view in the window next to it. But I know nothing out there has changed. Just the view. And I hear you say: Oh my child, the â€œviewâ€ Is like you seeing me. Sometimes you see me so clearly. Sometimes things look a little â€œbroken upâ€ and you wonder where I am. And sometimes you feel as if you canâ€™t see me at all. But I have not changed gone away forsaken you. I am the God who Does.Not.Change Linking with Weekend Brew and Barbie Swihart Still Saturday and Sandra Heska King

Constant and unchanging…even to those who are blind…and me who can see clearly fail to recognize the view may change, but the God of the Universe does not.
thanks for dropping by Laurie. thanks for celebrating our unchangeable God with me today.
mmm … yes, we prefer the sunshine, don’t we. but He, amazingly enough, speaks loudly through the rainstorms.
thank you for this piece, Carol. sincerely.
This is a GREAT, comforting though, Carol!
