There is something mysterious and mystical about a gray rainy PNW day. The silence and shadows will take you in and if you stop and listen you can hear God’s voice and words of truth.
It helps me to get away even briefly with the rush of the holiday season. To stop the busyness of work and the thousand and one things that vie for our attentions.
We must slow down and ask ourselves what is really important. Am I doing what God would have me do or just spinning my wheels in the mud?
What refreshes your soul and how do you get away?
“𝑺𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝒈𝒆𝒕 𝑳𝑶𝑺𝑻… 𝒄𝒂𝒖𝒔𝒆 𝒊𝒕’𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒚 𝒕𝒐 𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒄𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒓 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒇 𝒂𝒈𝒂𝒊𝒏.”
I reckon it is time to be moving on today and see what adventure lies ahead. 👊
- What do you do to rediscover yourself?
- Do you ever feel the need to get lost?
Even Jesus went away to be alone, and I find that nature has a way of healing my soul. The world, at least the news, tells us that everything is in disarray and chaotic. And at times it can be, it is then that we must re-center and discover ourselves again. What works for you?
“𝑺𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝒈𝒆𝒕 𝑳𝑶𝑺𝑻… 𝒄𝒂𝒖𝒔𝒆 𝒊𝒕’𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒚 𝒕𝒐 𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒄𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒓 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒇 𝒂𝒈𝒂𝒊𝒏.” #Quote #SundayThoughts #Motivation #EncouragementTweet

Yesterday is now gone
Today is all we really have
Tomorrow will come soon enough

35 years ago on May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helen’s in Washington State erupted repeatedly, sending turbulent slurries of fiery hot ash moving at hurricane speeds to the north. As the gas escaped, the particles fell and sorted into courser and finer particles. Such eruptions, called pyroclastic flows are extremely dangerous.
The middles section in the photo shows the layering that resulted. In just three hours, 25 feet of organized material was laid down over the May 18th deposit (at least 200 layers). These layers resemble the Tapeats Sandstone layers at the Grand Canyon (above right) which, by scientific evolutionary estimates, took millions of years to form. The monumentally epic eruption of Mount St. Helen’s in 1980 has been said to seriously challenge that time frame.
So why couldn’t an all-powerful God be able to do this, and defy our attempts to categorize Him in a box. Is there anything that would be to hard for Him?
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. ~Isaiah 55:8
