Bird's eye view

Sketch - Magic Marker on paper

Sometimes, sometimes You raise me up on eagle's wings, not so much to deliver from circumstance, but to stretch and teach when temporary irritations make the world too small and I become blind to the bigger story, the eternal story, and the scent of water in the desert.

when i become blind to the scent of water in the desert.
oh, jodi, this line alone.....
but the bigger truth here, the one of your glorious markers on the everyday... that of seeing past the moment, knowing there is a fullness beyond our comprehension. this is so. good.

I love it, I've never liked using magic markers but you make them look so pretty.

Leslie said...

How can you make markers look like a Van Gogh?

And your words are making me cry. So good. So very, very, good.

Thanks for your continued prayers, friend.

Wow. I wish I could make Magic Marker look that gorgeous... And your words are so beautiful, especially the line "the scent of water in the desert."

Thank you for your comment on my blog, too. I LOVE the way you described your favorite sounds. Wind in the trees is one of my favorites, too.

93 degrees! I can't believe it! And I'm hearing reports that Canada is still in the mid-80's. So no chance of cooler weather down here until you guys cool off...

P.S. Thanks, as always, for your faithful prayers.
