This blog is mostly about images. A photo captures a moment in time and lets us slow down long enough to see the rich texture of the life all around us. It's mostly for my own amusement, but if you stumbled here somehow, please enjoy.

When They Ring the Golden Bells

There's a land beyond the river,
That we call the sweet forever
And we only reach that shore by faith's decree
One by one we'll gain the portals,
There to dwell with the immortals
When they ring the golden bells for you and me.
(Dion De Marbelle, 1887)

Someday the bell is going to ring (I actually like thinking of the trumpet sounding a little better) and we'll be called home.  But the waving grain in front of this bell tower reminds me of the "fields white unto harvest".  So we press on for Just One More Soul!


  1. Thanks for posting a bit of Dion de Marbelle's gospel song. If you'd like to read a bit about the amazing life of this man, I invite you to check out my hymn blog, Wordwise Hymns, for today.

  2. Thanks for visiting, Robert -- interesting blog!
