Weekend Reflection: Nowhere to Hide

Lake Michigan. 

9 If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.

Psalm 139:9-12 (NASB)

Shhh. It’s the weekend. Remove your shoes and step into the stillness. Stop by Sandra Heska King’s place for Still Saturday. Then head over to Lisha Epperson’s for Give Me Grace. You’ll join us, yes? It’s rest and refreshment–your very own tranquil retreat. And we saved a place for you.

On Tuesdays, we’re talking about families and the joys and challenges that arise when we stretch across three (or more?) generations (child, parent, grandparent). The conversation began on January sixth  and we’ll continue until we run out of things to say. Everyone is welcome, and I hope to hear from each generation’s perspective.  I’m a grandmother now (praise be to God!), but I’m still a parent, and I’m still a child (my father is still living). And I remember my childhood, which included four loving grandparents. Being family is by turns effortless, impossible, blessed, challenging, hurtful, joyous . . . . Let’s talk about it.

Please join us.


  1. Beautiful in image and word.

  2. Oh, my. I’ve seen Lake Michigan a few times, but mostly connected to Lake Superior. At any rate, I the photo is wonderful and the Word of our Lord. Thank you. It was a blessing. You always are a treat, Sheila.

  3. Sheila, a stunning photo which made for a powerful pairing with that portion of Scripture. So glad I stopped here this morning. Have a blessed Sunday!

  4. I would love to see the great lakes! (Well, I did see part of one in Chicago and have seen them from the air.) I’m your neighbor at Still Saturday.
