5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5 ((NIV)

Watching the news this weekend, I saw the absolute devastation wreaked by multiple tornadoes in multiple locales and I was overcome by a strange sense of deja vu.  My unceasing prayer has been for restoration and healing and I found the tears flow when I hear Tom, Bubba or Bob tossing timber with tears in their eyes as they tell of what they and their families have lost and with yet in their next breath they are thanking God. It is so often told and repeated, these tales of heartbreak and loss. The sole surviving baby, the ruined church and the promise of more. Through it all, God is praised and the spirit of community is once again invoked and enacted.  God told Joshua “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”, this promise is still relevant today and what has to fuel and sustain the faith of those who must survive after the storms, hurricanes and tornadoes.

We awoke to snow, again, this morning but unlike so many other times instead of cowering cowardly inside peering from inside,  I am out in it, marveling at the peaceful, pristine beauty. The views change from day-to-day but God is unchanging and his handiwork always beautiful provides promises of Heaven.

Making His praise glorious!

My quick search of the New International Version of the Bible revealed 27 verses that mention the word window.  Windows were for looking down from and through (Genesis 26:8) , escaping from on a scarlet rope (Joshua 2:15),  fleeing from in order to preserve life (1 Samuel 19:12) or opening after 40 days and nights of rain on the ark (Genesis 8:6).   Windows let in fresh cleansing air or  provide frames to display for our eyes the beauty of God.   Windows provide brief passing slices into our lives for others.   On this the 29th day of February, I am acutely aware that my life and how I speak, interact and behave may be the only view of God someone may see.  Today, Father I ask that you shine brightly through so only You are seen  and glorified in this day!
