336. While the fates permit, live happily; life speeds on with hurried step, and with winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned. ~Seneca

In depth a light will grow,
A silver shine no shadows know,
Like wings unfolding in the sky,
That circle ‘round a gleaming eye,
Turning darkness all away,
Even depths will know their day,
For every shadow has its end,
In light! Life will return again!
~Robert Fanney

For myself, I am grateful to nature not so much when I see her on the side that is open to the world, as when I am permitted to enter her shrine. Then one may seek to know of what stuff the universe is made, who is its author or guardian, what is the nature of God… Life would have been a useless gift were I not admitted to the study of such themes. ~Seneca, 4 BC – AD 65

Grace is what picks me up
and lifts my wings high above and I fly!
Grace always conquers!
Be graceful in everything;
in anger, in sadness, in joy in kindness, in unkindness,
retain grace with you!
~C. JoyBell C.

Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings… Psalm 17:8 ✝

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!

    Love this Natalie, thank you for sharing. They were beautiful pictures you used as well. I particularly liked the Owl on the sheet of music.

  3. So much wisdom throughout your post,dear Natalie !
    That circle ‘round a gleaming eye’ … I love those nocturnal birds,the birds of wisdom,with the human-sized eyes, that turn darkness into light… And those busy bees,those sacred insects on the yellow ” honeyed ” manuscript … You adopted treasures to hymn nature and the majesty of life.Thanks Natalie for permitting us to enter nature’s shrine ; I’m so happy I was admitted to the study of such a post.
    Love and big hugs , Doda 🙂

    • Ooh, Doda, I love the way you described the Owl and the way you pointed out that my treasures “hymn nature and the majesty of life.” That is exactly my intent and you are more than welcome in my bits and pieces of nature’s shrine. Your comments ALWAYS bless my day. Hugs and love, N 🙂
