Thursday’s Windows – Venice with arches

Another contribution to Sandra Conner’s Thursday’s Windows

I love these elaborate windows with ogee arches in Venice. (The girl at the right is crossing one of the many arched bridges – every ten feet, it feels like – that take you over the canals. In the lower left corner, you can see steps at the beginning of the next bridge.)

  1. Satan’s condemnation brings no repentance or resolve, just regret!

    Satan has one aim: steal your peace, kill your dreams, and destroy your future.

    He’s deputized people to peddle his poison. Friends dredge up your past. Preachers proclaim all guilt and no grace. And parents, oh, your parents. They own a travel agency that specializes in guilt trips. “Why can’t you grow up?” “When are you going to make me proud?”

    But he will not have the last word! Jesus has acted on your behalf. Jesus Christ rises to your defense.

    Hebrews 10:21 urges: “. . .let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, because we have been made free from a guilty conscience.”

    Not just for our past mistakes but also for our future ones. Behold the fruit of grace: saved by God, raised by God, seated with God!

  2. It looks like there was a window on the gray side wall that has since been sealed off. Love these windows. Mine’s at http://photovignettes.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/thursdays-windows-week-6/

    • It does, doesn’t it? Maybe two windows – there’s something at the third floor level that looks like one of the windowsills. Glad you like them! Your window is gorgeous, though not as beautiful as the view outside it – then again, few things could be.

  3. Oh I love them too, very ornate and exotic!

  4. I’ve never been, but you’ve captured the romanticism well, here! It reminds me a lot of San Antonio, oddly…though I think SA was modeled after Venice in some ways, with the canal.
    Nice photo!

    • Very interesting – I’ve never been to San Antonio, and I would never have expected it to look like Venice. Next time we take a trip west I’ll have to make sure we visit it. Glad you like this one!
