Layers of light

Sunset on Lake Bemidji - September 2011

The days indeed grow short more quickly now.
The colours of the day grow more intense. 
Brighter blues, deeper greens, the golden glow of the sun as it departs
all catch my eye and for a moment stop my breath.

Life spins, but in His hands.
I read love words written to and about @gitzengirl a woman I never got the chance to know
a woman who burned with love for her Lord
and the desire for all to know Him
the pain of thier loss mixed with the pain in her body
and the Lord teaches us how to mourn
and the Lord teaches us how to rejoice
She will soon look into His eyes

His glory falls in golden light

shared with Emily and the rest of the imperfect

Beautiful tribute to a child of God. And by the way, I love the name, Flickers of a Faithful Firefly!
God bless,

I live about 45 miles from Lake Bemidji. It's a beautiful area.

Gitz was one of the first blogs I read long before I started blogging. What a source of joy and encouragement one found there.
