All Was Calm, All Was Bright At The End Of This November Day

A Cross In The Sky As I Looked Almost Over My Head

It was as if I were at the foot of the cross.

What a Beautiful thought and sight.

Jesus is no longer on a cross and He is Alive

and one day He will return to this earth.

Acts Chapter 1 in the Bible, tells us how Jesus was taken up

into Heaven, as His Disciples watched,

and suddenly two men dressed

in white appeared and asked them why they stood gazing

into the sky?

This same Jesus , who has been taken from you into heaven ,

will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.

------------------------------------

I wonder how many people really believe that Jesus Christ will return to this earth and what the consequences will be?

It’s all recorded in the Bible for all to read , and choose what they will believe. It is all about free choice and Faith.

We can have faith in almost anything but in the end Truth will be revealed.

We can call anything God and worship anything we choose. But I think in the end God Almighty will have the last say.

As I sit at my computer this night these are the thoughts that came to mind as I looked at the image of what I see as a cross in the sky.

These photos were taken just a little over a week ago on a mild November evening just after the sunset. It was so peaceful and the water so calm, which is somewhat unusual for this time of year. Usually it is very cold and the water very rough. I stood in “Awe” of the Beauty that was on display , and the quiet serenity of it all. Just me and two others were standing on the peer lost in our own thoughts and feelings. That was the last time I was out with my camera. It was a night to remember.

I am just getting over the flu and it was a nasty bug indeed. Our weather has changed and the days are getting cooler but still no snow. It won’t be long now as I know things can change over night. After all this is November , and I live in Ontario, Canada.

I want to wish all my American friends and anyone else who celebrates Thanksgiving this week , a very Happy Thanksgiving, and remember, “Thanksgiving is more than a Holiday, it is an Attitude. “

Yours Truly, Dianne :)

  1. Hi Diane, I'm glad you are feeling better. I was sick all last week with a throat bug, but I still went to work anyway. It is cold here tonight, and will be getting even colder in the next couple of days. As far as the words from the Bible, I know they are true, wish everyone did. And thanks for the beautiful pics!

  4. The peaceful and warm days of November ended with a crash yesterday. One foot of snow and temperatures below zero today show that this winter will enter with a crash and stay for a while. I love your pictures my friend...there's a real peace that fills me and I can't thank you enough for that.

I always save the draft but never knew I could make the change there and hit publish for the 2nd time and it would correct the post on my own site. WOW, what great news! I was going to say I can't wait to try it, but lol, I'll be using it every time I post :D

  19. Thank you Lisa. You have been such an encouragement to me also. Yes we need to trust the Lord with all our heart and soul, and not lean on our own understanding. Sometimes , I too need to be reminded of that as we live our daily lives, and as we plan for the future. We both know who holds our future, as we continue to walk in His Grace. We have a Bright future ahead of us as His Children. Our Hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ. Some day we all will be with the Lord. All those who believe will someday be home at last. No more pain, no more sickness, no more sorrow, no more war, no more death. What a Glorious Hope and Future we have in Jesus.
    You are so welcome Lisa. You have been there for me many, many times.
    Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I am with you in spirit. Love and Hugs, Dianne :)
