Love is Blinding

I have heard over my life time that “Love is Blinding”. A light bulb of understanding has come on in another room of my mind towards those words. I have observed that whatever a person focuses their love towards they themselves give life to that object within themselves no matter the reality of truth towards that object in the real world. Focused love can be blinding when a person wishes that particular something to be something that it is not and herein lies the blinding part. Let me preface, I am not picking on anyone by the examples I may … Continue reading Love is Blinding

Perspective

I count myself fortunate to have been raised in a mountainous area. As a young teenager of 16 with a license to drive gave me the first opportunity to venture out.

You arrive at work and it may be a sunny start and within a few moments the clouds roll in with a little darkness only to have the sun to peek through the clouds to tease you with a … Continue reading Inside Weather

Exploring God’s Canvas

     Riding along seeing the green colored trees, the  birds flying, the enormous mountains, how tiny I  was among them; smelling the different aromas of  nature as I passed by, hearing the streams flowing  over and around the rocks giving a tranquil sound,  birds singing, feeling the warm sunshine like waves  of love, the wind blowing off the troubles of the day,  tasting the fresh air of no more stress.  A light came  on in my mind as I was riding in the mountains. My  thoughts began to compare some of the breathe  taking paintings it had recorded over time in … Continue reading Exploring God’s Canvas
