On a Sunday #2

Remembering the Lord’s prayer on this Sunday.

Matthew 6:9-13

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name,

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread, And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

Winter is coming

A slightly different theme from my usual 100 Days of London Photography.  This photo was taken during one of my lunch hour walks in Godalming, Surrey.

Godalming is only a few miles from Guildford and it is a great place for walks.  You can take a walk along the River Wey into the quaint town.  The WinkWorth arboretum is also close by.

On a Sunday #1

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord
The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord

Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly. (KJV)

I think both man/woman and God were not ever meant to be mutually exclusive or independent of each other. I think in Proverbs 20:27, the writer was conveying a message that man/woman and God is a partnership where a man/woman is always dependent on the wisdom and calling of God.

A knowledgeable and logical person will see that as a weakness. How can a man/woman, the superior creation in the animal kingdom be subjected to a infinite partnership with an ethereal God (one that cannot be seen)?

I think if we pause for a moment and evaluate ourselves when we are at the lowest point in our lives, we will come across that void. And it is there where Proverbs 20:27 will make sense to us. If it doesn’t make sense now, maybe one day it will and I hope it will someday.

The Colours of Autumn

Another season
Another season

I went for a walk and the colour of autumn is everywhere. The change of season from a vibrant summer to a sombre and foggy surroundings made me feel rather melancholy. While I kicked the autumn leaves I couldn’t help but think the colours of autumn are there to help us transition into winter. I would like to think that autumn is a season for adjustments.
