Walk This Way

This amazing sunset made me want to drive to the beach (about 3-5 minutes away) and watch it set over the water. But you can see that car lights were already on. So I snapped this picture hanging out the car window. I didn't realize I got the lighted man on the crosswalk, too.

My excitement to see the beautiful sunset became frustration as the sky darkened. Sadly, I didn't make it to the beach in time. My trip was futile.

"'When the captain there saw what happened, he honored God: "This man was innocent! A good man, and innocent!' All who had come around as spectators to watch the show, when they saw what actually happened, were overcome with grief and headed home. Those who knew Jesus well, along with the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a respectful distance and kept vigil." Luke 23:47-49

The disciples walked with Jesus. They were amazed by His glory and power and loved Him. On this day when The Light died, they left for home, eventually the women did also. Their hopes dashed, their future uncertain. The dark sky matched the agony of their souls.

All appeared lost.

Love this post, Karen, and the photo is beautiful.

This week, I can relate to that "all appearing lost" feeling. Thank you for reminding me with God that is NEVER true. ;)

I love how you write, Karen. You weave words into a tapestry of love and grace.

Excellent photo. I like the man in the dark trees, illumining the gloom.

Love you,

Melinda, even when we feel lost, I'm so glad He's right there with us. Blessings dear friend.

Jeanette, your kind words touched my heart. Have a blessed Easter.

Janna, yes, the end of the story and the beginning of eternity comes in the next post. :)
