Like a Flood

When the enemy comes in . . .
like a flood the Lord will
raise up a standard against him.

(Isaiah 59:19)

The words "lift up a standard" against
are translated from the Hebrew: 

to vanish away, subside, chase, make to flee

meaning (in my opinion)
that when the enemy comes in
the Lord Himself will sweep him away
like overcoming - flooding waters . . .

Love is patient.
Love is kind.

What a perfect time
to reread and ponder
1 Corinthians 13.

What a perfect time
to put it into practice . . .
and practice 

makes perfect!

I've just begun a new painting.

My thought has been to create
something atmospheric,
and I wonder why.

With pigments and a brush,
 I want to place on canvas
with the hard edges gone.

Something like
the blind squinting of Monet.

Something fragile
yet enduring.

with the hard edges gone.

Just the sweet soul
