Cross & Faith…

Cross and Tree of Life…

Originally uploaded by tbgulli.

These are the two words that I entered into the Flickr site to search for photos, “cross” & “faith”. This is one of the first photos that came up. I like it. It has been a sad week. There have been a few bits of news this week that have made me smile and be hopeful, but there has been a lot of sad news. There is sadness from missing people that we love, from the loss of loved ones, and from the trials that people are going through. All I can do is put out a few verses that mean something to me…

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee. – Isaiah 54:10

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. – John 14:27

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. – John 16:33

  • Heather - Amen! Thank you Karyn for posting this. It’s been a sad and troubling week for me and I am thankful that God is Lord of all and does not change.


  • Cheryl - Hi Karyn, sorry to hear about your rough week last week. I’m thankful for my rough weeks (after the fact) because they help me to be grateful for the good ones. Just like Ohio weather, one day can be lots of sun and blue sky and the next it pours, and without the one the other is tiring. Hope a bit of sun comes your way soon.
