About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Today

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

A New Season

Nehemiah 8:11-12
The Levites calmed all the people, saying, "Be still, for this is a sacred day. Do not grieve."
Then all the people went away to eat and drink, to send portions of food and to celebrate with great joy, because they now understood the words that had been made known to them.


I don't quite know how this verse would apply to life today. But one thing I do draw from this snippet of truth. The people were grieving and the priests (Levites) told them to celebrate with great joy because of what they had come to understand.
So in the wake of my Granny's death, I can celebrate because I know that she has been clothed with life. She did not experience the sting of death. Praise Jesus!

Enjoy these pictures of celebration.

In Texas I think we really learn to appreciate the additional beauty that ice can bring to a winter scene. Because I don't see it outside much, I let hobby lobby supply my icy berries.


Since I was a child I looked forward to the day the Christmas lights went up. Today was the day!


This poinsettia is complements of my mommy. It is so nice to share an interest in flowers with my mom.

I pray the beginning of your Christmas season will be filled with a grace that only the presence of the Lord can bring.

Be blessed.
