Jakesprinter: Reflection

This Sunday, Jakesprinter wants photos illustrating “Reflection“. Here we go –

When we visited the Grounds for Sculpture sculpture garden back in July, most of the art was outdoors, but not all of it. I tried to take a picture of one indoor exhibit through the window – unfortunately, I wound up with a shot that shows the photographer, reflected, at least as well as the art inside!

In this one (also taken at Grounds for Sculpture), the water and trees are real; the boat, not so much, and the people on it, not at all. Yes, it’s a sculpture of a couple sailing.

Finally, here’s the most famous image of all showing “Reflection”: Rodin’s statue of The Thinker. (Taken outside the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia, several weeks ago.)

  5. MY MORNDAY ,,HI TOO MY FRIENDS BE BLESSET IN THE LORD,,,,SIS DOT…………………………………….“What a glorious Lord! He who daily bears our burdens also gives us our salvation” Psalm 68:19

    Did it ever occur to you that you are disobeying God when you carry your own burdens, when you are worried, frustrated and confused over circumstances? That is exactly what God’s Word says.

    In 1 Peter 5:7, God gives a specific command to His children, “Cast…all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you“. Not to cast all of one’s cares upon the Lord is to disobey Him and to deny oneself that supernatural walk with God among men.

    Is it not logical to believe that He who loved us so much that He was willing to give His only begotten Son would also be faithful to keep His promise to bear our burdens daily?

    As the psalmist so aptly states, the Lord bears our burdens on a daily basis for the believer, the day will never come when God fails to carry our load, to strengthen us, to impart power to us through His indwelling Holy Spirit – if we but ask.

    Marvel of marvels, the psalmist points out, our heavenly Father not only is our great burden-bearer; He is also the very one who gives us our salvation and the assurance of eternal life. How could anyone ask for more!

    With the sure knowledge that our sins are forgiven (salvation) and the assurance that He knows all about every burden we face – more important, He bears them for us – our lives should reflect honor and glory to Him by the way in which we share His blessings and the message of His great love with others.

    Provision for the supernatural life is promised in the Old Testament as well as the New, as evidenced by this glorious promise in the Psalms
