Foggy Morning   3 comments

Yesterday morning was a foggy one here at Acker Lake when the dogs and I took our morning walk. It was quiet as the fog enveloped the woods and the only sounds we heard were the occasional bird calls. One of those surreal times when you can let your imagination run away with you while you imagine all sorts of creatures that might be hiding in the fog ready to jump out at you.

But, like every other foggy morning, as the morning wore on, the fog lost it’s grip on our world and slowly faded away until it was only a morning memory. And watching the fog disappear made me think about life.

Right now Shirlee and I are going through the foggy part of our lives. As she struggles with her lung cancer it is hard to remember that someday the struggle will be over and she will be at peace once again, able to take a deep breath again, able to run again, free from pain and suffering. Someday she will see her beloved son who passed from this life way too soon, her parents and other loved ones who, along with her Saviour Jesus Christ will be there to greet her as she steps out of this earth’s foggy morning into the bright sunlight of eternity.

The fog only lasts for a little while in the scheme of life. And while it envelopes our world it may be frightening and we are unable to see only a few feet ahead, however we know that it’s only a temporary distraction. It will soon be over and the sun will shine again. And that, my friends, keeps us going.

  3. This is beautiful Bill. Reminds me of 1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV)
    12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. Great visit today. It was good to spend time with both of you. God Bless
