Life at the window

What thoughts lie behind these beautiful eyes? As he hovers at the window, does he dream, like me,  of a faraway land, where the summer sun shines, and winter ails and colds are but a distant memory?

Gazing out of a window is a glimpse into so many other worlds.

We can gaze out of our own house windows taking in all of nature, watching plants swaying in the breeze, seeing how the seasons change brings different and unique colour throughout the year.

At the huge windows of an airport terminal we watch planes taking travellers on all kinds of adventures and bringing them safely home again.

At a ticket counter window, we pay for the pleasure of escapism into a movie or show where we forget our own life and become immersed in the stories unfolding before our eyes.

From a car window, we see the landscape ever changing, mountains, rivers and trees, rushing by at great speed.

And this particular window is just perfect for a young adventurer to find his feet.

To play a little.

To explore his surroundings, learning how a window works. Learning about limitations, for though we can see so much, we cannot ever grasp it until we move past the window and out into the world we look upon.

It is for us to discover that through the window is life that exists far beyond our wildest dreams.

Hi Meghan, thank you so much for your timely comment. So timely.
I have been thinking so much today about the tears.... about how as people we naturally think that tears are a sign of weakness.... but really they are not. Ive been thinking that if God's people did not shed tears... we could not reach the broken. We wouldn't be able to relate. Strength can be shown through vulnerability. Not sure if that makes sense.

Also, on Tuesday night, I was prophesied over.... in short, it was that God was forming a song in me.... one that comes from my journey.... and there will be a harvest from it...

Thank you SO much for sharing with me. Honestly, I'm so glad you did. I will text that verse to my niece tonight. Blessings, Gail
