    Hi, I’m next to you at Five Minute Friday. I love your post- such beautiful descriptions that really bring the scene to life. I’m grateful for the security we have that Jesus is always the same whatever else is changing around us.

    Goodness gracious, thanks for sharing this! I love, “Yet the boring and the old and the mundane and the nostalgia hold their own type of beauty. ” reminds me of the scripture- …every scribe bringing out treasures old and new… (Matthew 13:52),
    and- “Because here or there, future and now, my family is the same. They are near and they are now and this is what I must hold on to. Because no matter where we are on a map or a timeline, our love is the same. Jesus’ love for us is the same. ..”
    This is so beautiful and powerful and grounding….indeed, like the family is spinning out…’the days are long but the years are short.’..and we have to hold on because it is one of the most precious gardens and playfields of Real Love…finding, growing in and reflecting the Father’s Mega Love to one another and sharing it with the rest of the world. Keep on!
    Love from Holland,
    Jasmine (nr. 70 on the linkup)
