in its time

San Francisco 2011

He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set eternity in the hearts of men...
~Ecclesiastes 3:11

  1. I love how complete these truths are... no need for anything to be added. Needed to hear this today, Donna. Thanks for posting...

  2. That verse reminds me of one of the songs we sing during Holy Week at church. "Two thousand years are one day in God's eternal sight, and yesterday's sorrows are this day's delights." Gives me chills every time I sing it.

  3. What a beautiful photo - it makes me hopeful for Spring.

    This scripture popped into my head when I read the lovely verse you posted:

    "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that we are without excuse."

    Thanks for this, Donna.

    1. Wonderful quote...what's the address?

    2. Romans 1:20.

      I just looked at it in The Message: "By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such cannot see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse".

      The beautiful Ecclesiastes verse was put to music back in the day by Maranatha Music. It's a lovely song.

  4. Your blog has been speaking little moments of peace to my soul, Donna. This post was especially something that I needed to hear right now on this particular day. Thank you for ministering to total strangers like myself.

  5. That verse helped me so when we were struggling with infertility issues. It reminds me that all things are done with His purpose in His time.

    Beautiful photograph to help with our gray day here, thank you!
    The song by the Byrds runs through my mind....Turn, Turn, Turn.
    Music is the commentary that accompanies my thoughts at all times. Our family enjoys singing out a song when the right phrase pops up in conversation. Thanks be to God for musicians, artists, photographers, songwriters and all!
    love and prayers, jep

    1. "Music is the commentary that accompanies my thoughts at all times." Lovely, jep. LOVELY.

      Beautiful picture, Donna. I know you are hungering for spring. Here in California we are still hungering for winter. Oh, if the rains do not come we will have a hard summer!!

      Bren might be coming to Chicago for basketball in April!!! Will keep you posted.


  7. God's Word + your photograph = Beautiful
