One who observes and thinks about what has been seen, what has passed by my way, what greater meaning lies behind and beneath life's small events.
I studied theology, our course was Acts and St. Paul's letters. And despite his misogynistic image, I've always been a follower.
St. Paul was a man of his times and its view of women. He still held women in respect for their work in the church.
Philipians 4:13 has been my mantra lately. Thankfully I've got that peace that keeps me calm. :)
there are chapters in Philipians that I have "taken up camp"in, for the support those verses gave me.
I'm 'camping' a bit here too. Always grateful for the ones I know and kicking my own rear that I don't spend enough time learning more because they really are helpful (always, but especially when you need them).
Hey Susan,Bless you and total respect in your beliefs. Have a peaceful weekend, dear lady.Gary :)
Good to see your name, Gary. Thanks for your comments...I always smile.
Have to reach that goal
We all need to have goals.
Looking back gets us nowhere
I personally have spent too much time looking back with regrets and guilt. This verse is a reminder to look forward.
Great quote. I love that book. There is much to be gleaned in it.
Memories can be comforting. Good quote, though. Untethered Realms / MPax
Nice to meet you!
Moving ever forward as we should. Thanks for sharing, Susan. Untethered Realms
Thanks for stopping by! Forward is the only way to move.
it is never good to only look back, we must look forward so we can grow
Something like the path we have chosen or has chosen us.
And all I can add is Amen!
Thanks you, Alex!
I second Alex...Amen!
Love that verse <3
It reminds me that things I have done in the past are back there, and that I must always go forward.
Thanks for the reminder to always look forward.Julie
It is a good reminder to keep.
Phillipians is a Bible book??I never knew that.
Phillipians is a letter written to the church in Pillipi, by Paul as he was imprisioned. His letters, meant to encourage the new churches, also became part of the Bible.
So beautiful. The word of God truly holds the key to all problems.
Knowing that makes bearing problems much easier, as God carries the load.
Keep your face to the sunshine and embrace life with optimism.
Look forward to the light, and ignore/forget the darkness behind...Yes!
So often, forgetting what lies behind is the hardest thing to do,
So very very true. The past is like a haunting ghost.
Amen!! Philippians a favorite book of mine :)betty
Go ahead...it won' t hurt...I'd love to hear what you think!
