Steadfast into the New Year


With the New Year knocking on the door of the current day; excitement and anticipation surround us.... just as the fog does hang, in the photo above.
I can't help but say it represents a looming feeling of fear or maybe dread..change and the unknown are afoot.
When I came upon this Lamp Post in the midst of a dence fog, I was surprised by it's warm glow, in an almost Black and White setting. Immediately, I thought of little LUCY from "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" from the Chronicles of Narnia series that C.S. Lewis wrote.
LUCY, upon entering a rather large Wardrobe, was immediately comforted by it's contents of soft furs and the close surroundings. As she did go further into the furnishings inners, she came upon a second row of furs. Suddenly as that happened ,a crunching under her feet she did feel. Then the wispy, spiky touch of branches upon her cheek...she had entered a new time and place. She Noticed as well, there was "OTHER LIGHT".


" LUCY felt a little frightened but she felt very inquisitive and excited as well".
She ventured toward the "OTHER LIGHT".
 "( she had of course, left the door open for she knew that it is a silly thing to shut oneself into a wardrobe")
She also thought, " I can always get back if anything goes wrong".
I find that I can be like Lucy- with the immediate future looming. I have certain securities at hand yet I also have a fear for the unknown and the certain change that is coming.

The future is the "OTHER LIGHT" and the wardrobe stands steadfast as my known truths of
"Faith, Hope and Love" as Corinthians 1 13:13 describes as true certainties. LOVE being the greatest.
Having my heart concede the great love it holds for all that I have been given and those that trust me-I will step into the next~ BOLDLY SO~ In the faith and hope, God does also give!


Thanks for the enduring friendship here, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Striding together with you!

  2. Kacey, I love this post. I love the light that stands in the darkness. It represents the light of Jesus in us shining forth in the darkness around us.

    I saw in your last post that you were experiencing the winter blues. I could not find the solitude to scribe encouraging words to you as grandkids were here and I kinda get frazzled when they are here . So, I prayed for you that the Lord would lift your spirit and give you His peace. I am always praying for you :)

    And Look! He gave you this picture to remind you that He is always the light in the darkness. Light belongs in darkness. Light dispels darkness. Light chases away our fears and apprehensions of the future.

    Yeah God! for holding Kacey up and strengthing her. Yeah God for giving her this awesome reminder of your light, within her and all around her. Yeah God for lighting her path and giving her a calming peace as she approaches the new year with confidence and power. Yeah God! for shining through Kacey for the whole world to see your Glory through her.

    God's blessings be upon you, girl as you ride into the new year with new and exciting things to be experienced and shared. I look forward to riding along side of you, my friend.

    hugs,
    Patrina :)

  7. I first saw the photo as a miniature on my blog roll list, and immediately thought of Lucy in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".
    You know, without being able to read your comment!

    The Narnia books have been my favourites since childhood. They are wonderful.

    Marvellous picture, thanks for sharing, and once again - A Happy New Year!

  20. WOW, great lamp post photo! It looks really cool; and great analogy to Narnia! :) Happy New Year!

  21. I, too thought of the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe immediately upon seeing your photos in the dark, gloomy, foggy woods.
    Gorgeous photos, by the way!

    The only problem with the new year is that, unlike the wardrobe, once the door is closed, there is no going back.

    Let's all hope that 2010 is filled with happiness, safety, love, peace and joy. I wish all those things for you, Kacy, and more.

    Happy New Year my friend,
    ~Lisa
