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.

Greg & Diana

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. (Phil. 2:13)

Our son Greg is engaged to Diana Wagenbach and we find ourselves deeply grateful and humbled at the Lord's tender leading and care for our children.

We use phrases like, "I was left hanging."  Or, "It kept me in suspense."  And we don't usually like it all that much.  At least those of us who treasure certainty don't like it much. 

But what if we could see the invisible yet strong cables of God's arms holding us up?  If through the eyes of faith we could be more at peace just hanging, knowing that we are kept by His grace (see I Peter 1:5).

The Rio-Antirrio bridge spans the Gulf of Corinth from the Greek mainland to the Peloponnese.

For some reason this picture makes me think of the phrase, "I'm going to my happy place."  While I wouldn't suggest "escape" as a recommended regular practice, it certainly can be beneficial to let one's thoughts drift to a "place" where there are good memories of peacefulness, time with friends and loved ones, vacations, etc.

This little village on the north end of the Greek island of Cephalonia evokes some of those warm thoughts as I recall the day--in a week of such days--I spent there with my best friend and helpmate.

And with the cold and gray of winter reaching like tentacles all around us, a little blue sky and water doesn't hurt either.  Would you agree?
