Skywatch #80


Nyman's Gardens, originally uploaded by duopastorale.

For I know the plans I have for you", this is the LORD's declaration, "plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11

This photo is a skywatch repost from the past year; my most popular photo on Flickr. When I posted this photo back in June, Photo Cache said, "What a glorious image, full of hope and cheer."

And what better way to go into 2010, than with that hope which He gives us. He doesn't guarantee us an easy ride or even perfect health and circumstances, but He does promise never to leave us and that nothing will separate us from His love. And in the end that's really all that matters.

May you all know His guiding and sustaining hand in all your joys and sorrows throughout the coming new year.

Did I say that? Well, it's still how I feel about it today when I saw the image before I read your text.

Let's all be hopeful for a better and grace-laden new year.

All the best.
