the things we cannot see will last forever

“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.  For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!  So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”  2 Corinthians 4:16-18


The sunrise image below of the sports facility at Eastern Oregon University is a definite stretch, but I thought, wow, God’s light in the darkness, whether in a sunrise or in a light shining in the darkness, does last forever.  The scene below will disappear, and yet—What a wonderful reminder Paul gives us that there is so much more beyond the temporary, transient lives we live now. I pray we do recognize  our spirits are being renewed daily!

Eastern Oregon University, the most beautiful site in eastern Oregon for fall colors

The best fall colors in eastern Oregon are found on the campus of Eastern Oregon University (EOU). The campus commands outstanding views of hills and mountains on all sides.  The grounds are exceptionally well maintained, and the campus “fits” like a warm family home. In the fall, the trees clothe themselves in reds, oranges, yellows of different hues and shapes. One could not find any better setting for a college campus!
