Morning Fog Has Lifted

Fog over the valley: LadyD Books
 We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! -- 1Cor. 13:12
Wee morning hours of fog: LadyD Books


By Carl Sandburg
   The fog comes
   on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

Patches of fog in the lowlands: LadyD Books


Morning fog finds muted headlights
slowly coming into driving view,
roads wet, slick, slippery, 
blend into a gray eerie void, 
that frightens even seasoned drivers.

Traffic lights barely visible, 
caution is the order of this day,
brake lights unseen, accidents likely...
better to stay home unless
absolutely necessary.

Sirens scream through intersections...
paramedics rush to save lives,
police to restore order,
firemen diligently extinguish flames,
blessedly temperatures warm
from yesterday's freeze...and
morning fog begins to lift. -- By Mel Patters

 I love to see fog in photos because it seems so foreign and dimensional. Perhaps it's the sepia look to the photographs in black and white.
Fog is lifting: LadyD Books
It's not the normal weather here in SoCal. I know it can be a drag to drive through and it sure leaves everything damp in its path. We usually get the 'June gloom' along the coast while experiencing hot temperatures inland.

 I've seen the awesome sights of the San Francisco Bay Bridge surrounded by mounds of dense fog. Here it has settled in our little valley for awhile but it will soon burn off.

How To Handle Adversity by Charles Stanley

The Friday 56 

My Aunt gave me a book by Charles Stanley, How to Handle Adversity (Charles Stanley Discipleship) It's a hardcover book, around 191 pages from Thomas Nelson Publishers.

Book Description

You lost your job. Your son ran away. A loved one just died from cancer. Your best friend is getting a divorce. The list is endless.

Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Dr. Stanley contends, "As much as we all want to know the answer to the why question, it is really not the most significant question. The real question each of us needs to ask is, 'How should I respond?'"

"Perhaps somewhere in your past you were dealt a devastating blow emotionally or even physically. At that point you could not reconcile the conflict of such injustice with the existence of a loving God."
I like Charles Stanley. The book has received lots of 5 star reviews. I'm enjoying it...
