The Gray Inbetween

It's Monday and we had a icy / rainy day.  Now it is very  foggy out, it reminded me of the gloom and doom sci fi moves from the 50's  - black and white 1950's!   here is a picture I snapped in our drive ways of the front fence: 


 
That is a four foot high fence!!   Because of today's rain, the snow has dropped down a lot, last night it went to the base of the lawn lamp!
 
I didn't mind the gray today, we had a nice relaxing day,I spent a lot of time in my craft room and the guys didn't spend to much time dealing with the white stuff.
 
 
 
I made a batch of these cards The original  thought was for a sympathy card and I think would still work as that.
 

 
 I changed it and put a "praying for you' sentiment on it.
The photo doesn't show the contrast of the degrees of black and white (gray)
so like life, presenting the gray and not the contrasting of black and white.
Sometimes we can feel our lives and prayers  feel  gray, "anyone listening"?   We are distracted by the lost boundaries.  Our prayers are heard and our lives are seen, buy the Creator who has the defining eyes,  He sees the contrasting of black and white and knows how to perfectly order the times and seasons of our lives.  Sometimes there is shadow and gray, but that does not last forever.  When we trust Him, we begin to see the boundaries and the order of black and white.
So what am I saying?   I am saying when you Trust the Lord, there is beauty and contrast even in the gray times of our lives. When the Light comes He brings the colors back, brings back the boundaries and the peace
 
 
 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27
 
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
