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.

Weep for the City?

What's the first thing you think of when you hear the word "city?"  Is it positive?  When I was growing up, there was a huge migration out of the city. It seemed that everyone wanted to live in the suburbs or beyond.  Being a "city slicker" wasn't a kind or endearing label. 

Today's young people seem to look more favorably towards cities.  For whatever reason.

What does God see when He thinks of the city?  We don't have to guess at that.

"And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it," (Luke 19:41)

He wept with desire that the lost of the city would be gathered unto Him.  So I wonder how He wants me to think when I think of the city?

When I Consider

 A cursory review of this blog will illuminate my love for this subject and Psalm 8:3&4.  When I posted this to Facebook recently, a friend commented, "God's Thumbnail!"

Just how big is God, anyway?

For me, though, it's the "what is man?" question and the praise in "that thou visitest him" that is truly humbling and awe-inspiring.  Surely the "heavens declare!"
