Beauty deprived of its proper foils and adjuncts ceases to be enjoyed as beauty, just as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light. John Ruskin
There is strong shadow where there is much light. Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
This morning I watched the shadows dance across one mountain as the sun came up from behind another. When the sun ballooned above, the shadows deepened then the muted tones gave way to vibrant shades of beige, brown and gold. Truly spectacular.
Psalms 17:8(NKJV) Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings
Psalms 587:1(AMP) Be merciful and gracious to me, O God, be merciful and gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge and finds shelter and confidence in You; yes, in the shadow of Your wings will I take refuge and be confident until calamities and destructive storms are passed.
Psalms 91:1(ESV) He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Remember…Sometimes those “shadows” are being cast from the protective Father.
