“You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst.”
There’s something about this time of year: The lights, the sparkle, the shine; the bold reds and greens and golds contrasting against each other; something that makes me remember that I love photography. That, combined with my awareness that some folks at church have been playing with new cameras and lenses, have let me hear again the soft, insistent call of my digital SLR. It’s nothing fancy, and the lens isn’t anything to write home about, but it captures beauty.
“Should you not fear me?” declares the LORD.
“Should you not tremble in my presence?
I made the sand a boundary for the sea,
an everlasting barrier it cannot cross.
The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail;
they may roar, but they cannot cross it.”
Somebody here at the Bike Alliance has a sense of humor. Must be a coping mechanism for dealing with the stress and chaos.
