When you feel like dust

For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
For He knows our frame;
He remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:11-14

Sometimes I feel my dustiness.....When I am tired, when I roll out of bed and everything is creaking. When I can't seem to sleep when I need to, and then nod off in the chair, unable to keep my eyes open. We are so frail, and yet there is a part of us that will last forever. The part that God breathed life into......

Our Spirit.

That is the part that keeps on going when the body and mind are all tired out. That's that part that will keep on going when we take our final breath on this place we call home.

But until then, we take time out in between the all tired out times. I am planning one of those timeouts tomorrow. I will be heading to the coast.....and blessedly wonderful temperatures. Instead of being huddled inside to escape 110 outside, I will be throwing the windows open to greet balmy perfect breezes and temps of around 70 in LA.

I am looking forward to practising more with my camera......

and reading....

and maybe some blogging too!  

And......a special shout out to Michelle DeRusha over at "Graceful" for introducing me to "picnik" a wonderful site where you can play with your photos and do cool editing stuff.
