This Too Shall Pass

Ecclesiastes and I walk by this beautiful field on our walk each morning. It's absolutely gorgeous any time of the day, but especially breathtaking at sunrise. I was sad to see a sign posted along side the road stating 121 homes would soon be build on this site. It prompts me to savor every moment of this awesome landscape for it shall soon pass.

As I grieved over the thought of construction, noise, and business invading this peaceful scene, God reminded me that just as good things come and go, so will the bad. One day Satan will be tossed into the fiery pit (Rev. 12:9) never to return again, and we will live with God in heaven for eternity. No more sin, sickness, pain, or tragedy. All will be perfect, just as God had originally planned. We will commune with Father God and His Son Jesus Christ forever and His kingdom will never end!

Daniel 6:26b “For He is the living God and He endures forever; His kingdom will not be destroyed, His dominion will never end."

"His kingdom will never end..." thanks for the reminder, Ms. Nancy.

You and I think so much alike.
Yesterday I was driving and saw the most beautiful corn field and along the road they had planted pretty trees nicely spaced apart.
It was extremely windy yesterday here in Oklahoma (& again today!) but it was just beautiful. I thought about stopping to take a picture.
God sure does bless us with some beautiful sights & I'm sure He loves it when we take special notice.
Thanks for the comment on my blog.
We went back to Lowe's last night to get everything we need. I decided against the accent pieces (tile) that would go on the back wall. It just didn't seem to match and I couldn't find anything that did match. It saved us money too by not using that.
I will definitely post pictures when we're completely done. We (I keep saying "we") he is painting, putting down wood floor, tile counter top, new ceiling fan, new light fixture & new blinds. I sure am hoping he can do it all in a week. :)
I just ordered the blinds yesterday and they'll take a little over a week to come in.
So when it's all done....and decorated...pictures will come.
Please say a little prayer that all goes well for him. We have an older home and there are usually surprises when he starts remodeling projects.

Nancy, Thank you so much for participating in Be Still Sunday. My hope is that it can be a small witness to others to "be still". I really appreciate your support!

What a beautiful picture. It seems now-a-days, if there is space, we need to fill it. Not a great philosophy of life.

God Bless- Emmy : )

What a great message and a beautiful picture. Near my home they are wiping out huge areas of farmland and trees and bulldozing everything for subdivisions and it makes me so sad. Thank you for the reminder that this won't last and that His Kingdom will last forever!

Yes. We must appreciate all the good in our lives for we are not guaranteed it will last. AND it is nice to remember that God promises to make all things new!

Hi Nancy, thanks so much for stopping by my blog last week and leaving such a sweet wish -- a prayer really -- for my family reunion. It was a truly blessed time. Just wanted to let you know that I posted a picture and some highlights that you might like to check out.

Blessings to you!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm always excited when I meet someone new. I have loved reading through your blog over the past few days. I can't wait to see the "One Size Fits All" study come out as well as the prayer journal.

I love the name of your dog!!!

Beautiful picture. We have a few of those near where we live, and I also love it when I see the sunrise there.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Have a blessed weekend.
