The psalmist tells us, “God’s steadfast love endures forever.” Sometimes my vision clouds God’s constancy; sometimes clouds bring on storms, and I can’t envision that behind it all God’s love never changes. All I can see is that my life and life around me does change.
This morning the sunrise was on fast forward; and in the past five minutes a narrow strip of green sea has spread to color the entire vista. This is all well and good for the ocean in front of me, and for this well-built cottage that protects me from the bothersome elements; I can absorb and embrace these changes. But in a month my time here will end; I won’t have these daily reminders of God’s magnificence and awesome steadfast love. My prayer is that I will feel the memory.
