River Bend

This photo was taken at a bend in the Clackamas River in Oregon. It is not apparent in the photo, but water on the left was very still while the water right was moving very quickly. (It works better in nature than it does on highways.)

In life, sometimes you find yourself in the fast-moving water and sometimes over at the side standing still.

Time

This is a picture of a sturgeon that we saw at the Bonneville Hatchery in Oregon. There was a sign in the viewing area that said sturgeons have changed very little since they first appeared 200 million years ago.

When I think about time, I usually think days/months/years. I don’t ordinarily think about millions of years. Peter wrote “With the Lord a day is like 1000 years, and 1000 years or like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8) I’m sure we can say with God, 200 million years is like a day. Our God is an awesome God.

Imperfections

This was a tree we passed on one of our hikes in Glacier NP. It wasn’t obvious why it looked this way. It seems to have lost it’s bark, in a very peculiar pattern. Maybe it was from a lightening strike, or fire. Maybe animals. Or insects. Whatever the cause, the tree survives and it’s imperfections tell a story.

In a similar way, our imperfections tell a story. Do my imperfections tell a story about a loving God?
