Close Up



Seeing close up 
always gives a different perspective.
Details come into focus.
Beauty we have not seen from a distance may surprise us 
and we get as close as we can.

Being close up 
with Jesus changes our perspective.
We learn who He really is.
His awesome beauty and amazing love come into focus
and make us want to get closer still. 

It's up to us
to make time
to get close to Him -
to get to know Him.
Close up time with Him is life changing!

"It's up to us to make time"; so very, very true. I'm afraid too many people never give a thought to the time they spend with Him.

Your Bible verse today is taken from one of my favorite chapters.

I love these little guys and, yes, close up reveals many things you never knew. Also like that header of the redbud. It's hard to take a good pic of the redbud blossom but you have succeeded.

I clicked for a closeup. Awesome! Creation around us everywhere...and we are usually too busy to "see".
