Standing on Tiptoe

"In my opinion whatever we may have to go through now is less than nothing compared with the magnificent future God has planned for us. 
The whole creation is on tiptoe 
to see the wonderful sight 
of the [children] of God coming into their own."
Romans 8:18 - JB Phillips paraphrase

"Learning sleeps and snores in libraries, 
but wisdom is everywhere, wide awake, on tiptoe."
-Josh Billings

1. Camano Island, WA - while on retreat with 4 other women pastors, 2007
2. Our youngest granddaughter on her 2nd birthday, scampering across the park to the slide.
3. My own feet as I sat in the car, 'looking long' at the ocean. This sitting still thing is becoming a habit, 
hopefully one that leads to increased wisdom. :>)

Joining tonight with Sandy at "Still Saturday" and Deidra at "Sunday,"
two weekly invitations to encourage quieting our words
and reflecting on God's beauty revealed in this world and our lives.
