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!
