Grab the Hope



When people make promises, they guarantee them by appeal to some authority above them so that if there is any question that they’ll make good on the promise, the authority will back them up. 

When God wanted to guarantee his promises, he gave his word, a rock-solid guarantee—God can’t break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable.

We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us, in the order of Melchizedek.

Faithful


Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Songs of Joy



The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.

Grateful November


Sunlight casted a shadow to my office wall this Tuesday ... making me notice, that the skies were blue and clear outside. The yellow leaves were dancing in the wind, falling so elegantly from the chestnut trees under my window - such a pretty sight.

My next meeting was to start in 20 minutes - I grabbed my coat and went outside, admiring the bright sunlight, breathing the cold air - and waiting for the arrival of my colleague. 

According to the Danish Meteorological institute, Copenhagen has only had 29 hours of sunshine in November - this maybe the reason why the moments in the sun won't go unnoticed ...

November is a kind of a culmination of fall - The days get shorter and the weather gets colder - we're moving towards winter. 

November invites us to
- wear wool socks and warm gloves, 
- notice the changing weather from grey and cloudy periods to the moments when the sun breaks out, 
- cherish the foliage color play
- bake apple pies and 
- light candles in the evenings.

November is also a month of Thanksgiving. I has been a pleasure to see the many images on Instagram feed #gratefulnovember - picturing the small and big things, people are thankful for. We do not celebrate Thanksgiving as such here in Scandinavia, yet there is so much to be thankful for, actually each day, that I wouldn't mind dedicating a special day as a national holiday for Thanksgiving:


Happy Thanksgiving to all the friends in America!

Take delight ...


Oh, how sweet the light of day, 
And how wonderful to live in the sunshine! 
Even if you live a long time, don’t take a single day for granted. 
Take delight in each light-filled hour, 
Remembering that there will also be many dark days.

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭11‬:‭7-8 The Message

Glimpses of Sunlight - and Dreams of a Tripod


Welcome back, sunlight and blue skies ... Such a pleasure after a week with rain, fog and grey skies! The sun peeked out Friday afternoon - so I biked by the lake, so see the setting sun, on my way home from work.




The weather is getting cold - the crispy, fresh air fills my lungs each morning as I step outside - the temperature may soon be under zero during the nighttime.

The sun is getting up at 8 am, and setting down at 4 pm ... That is my working hours and I am mostly inside ... So I'm cherishing the weekends, having the opportunity to be outside during daylight.

Light is so important, in many ways ... and especially with photography. I prefer taking the advantage of natural light when taking pictures, so I'm using each and every opportunity I get, to snap the daily photos with my iPhone.




Yet winter is a wonderful season for learning low light photography ... which is the reason why tripod for my DSLR is on my wish list. I have been reading lately some articles about slow shutter speed photography, and would really like to experiment more in that area. 

What would be important to consider when buying a tripod?
And furthermore - what to consider when photographing with a tripod ... Should I use a timer in order to behave sharpness when photographing with normal shutter speed?


- As you can read, I am thinking about entering into a new, unknown terrain!

 ... Wishing you a Happy Weekend with Glimpses of Sunlight,

Nina

Path of Peace


Through the heartfelt mercies of our God, 
God's Sunrise will break upon us,
showing us the way, one foot at a time, 
down the path of peace.

Luke 1:78 The Message



It Is Well by Terry MacAlmon


"Shalom is not just peace but flourishing
flourishing in all dimensions of our existence -
in our relations to God,
in our relation to our fellow human beings,
in our relation to ourselves,
in our relation to creation in general."

Nicholas P. Wolterstorff
