Blogger Friend School Assignment #20 {A Room with a View}

There are lots of windows in our lives, i.e., window of our soul, closed windows and open windows that God has for our lives, there's what some people call their, "window of opportunity", and there's "eyes are the window to our soul".  The assignment is to take a picture, if you're able, find a graphic if you can, and write about your favorite window in your home or the one you look out of when you have those 'daydreaming' moments. 

This picture gives a little idea of what I see out my bedroom window as I sit here at the computer.  I am lazy and didn't want to get out my camera, so I just found a picture from back in the fall:

Of course, right now that tree is still pretty bare, so I can see the neighbor's house behind, and it's not quite that close to my window.

The next two pictures are my favorite views from windows in my home - out the back windows, the first one looking east and the second one, more towards the south.

I consider myself very blessed to have country views out my windows!  And I don't complain about NOT having my "dream" view, I do have a wall-hanging that helps me imagine it, and dream of maybe someday (when we retire?) having a log home in the woods:

Who knows? Maybe!     I love having big windows and having a view that stretches a bit, rather than a fence or a wall.  I think the only thing I could really enjoy having right up close to my windows would be big trees.  Being able to see trees and mountains and sky when I look out my windows reminds me to be in awe of their Creator.  And how wonderful it is to be able to look at the world God made for us, and to read the Word God has given us, and get a peek at what God Himself is like.  The challenge for me is also to see the people around me as God sees them, and to remember to see the events and situations I face through a spiritual perspective - in light of eternity.

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.

~ Ephesians 1:18-19

Oh, I would so love to live in a log cabin some day!

The views you have are truly beautiful and an everyday reminder of God's greatness!

from your windows. So very pretty. Though I love the mountain view my future desire would be to have a view of the ocean. So nice to have deams and new 'windows' to wait for. I enjoyed you sharing yours.

Mountains are one of the things I'd love to see out of my dream window as well. The place we recently moved from had lots of mountains. We lived in a city that was in a valley with mountains all around. I miss seeing those mountains!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Boy, am I glad I caught this one! What a beautiful view! But, I loved that you have a "dream view" you aren't complaining about. You have such a "faith" perspective about this post, and I am reminded to consider the same.

Thanks for writing this. It was such a blessing for me!

You sound a lot like me. I love to look out and see the things God has made!
