Rose Colored Stained Glass Windows


Life is always viewed through filters.  Sometimes it's pain or it's twin anger.  Sometimes it's religion or rebellion.  This reminded me of an old Petra song

Accuracy, truth and honesty are often hard to find especially in social media.  Portrayed lives are often false.  Extremes are everywhere but candid heartfelt expression...not so much.  Valentine's Day approaches so religious post about love or ones proclaiming love for "hubby" (I hate that word) or "wiffy" (not sure that's even a word) or significant other will abound.  The true us seems locked in ice somewhere
Will spring's approach melt the ice so our real selves can be displayed
The dealings of God lately have been working away at my ice exposing the rock of my salvation
It's a blessed spiritual thaw.  The sun/Son still shines in the winter in spite of my winter of soul
He makes me smile when I thought no joy remained...you might say He gave me a "faith lift"
Yes, there's suffering but there's a path through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
My love fails...His never does...this is life's most beautiful filter
