Look Up

"Keep your mind, heart and soul looking up -
the answers are all there." ~Mama Hen
Life is full of so many ups and downs. We all have them and we spend most of our lives learning how to deal with things so that we can keep a healthy balance. Since I was young I found that when things bring me sadness, stress or simply take the wind out of my sails I "look up". Somehow the clarity of it all comes to light. Knowing that God is watching over my family and I is enough to carry me through the difficult times. It gives me strength and hope when I need it most. Although it seems so simple, if one does it enough, looking up at the brilliant light will inspire growth and courage. Look up and we will find the answers we so desperately seek are all there.

See the angel?

  5. So many today think that the answers are all 'within themselves.' But you're right - the answers are in trusting God. He alone is in control of the Universe and He alone is worthy of our trust.

    Nice pics - again! :-)
