Faith

Faith is like a radar that sees through the fog --
the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.

The smallest seed of faith is better than the largest fruit of happiness.

Faith is to believe what you do not see:
The reward of this faith is to see what you believe.
Saint Augustine

The principal part of faith is patience

I just love the pictures you share with us, and the words that go with them. It is a talent all its own!

I love the Peruvian bird picture - our church has a team there in Arequipa right now, getting ready to come home tomorrow. They've worked hard and been so blessed.

This post dovetails nicely with what the girls and I have been memorizing this summer. We are memorizing a large portion of Matthew 28 ending with:

31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
