Noticing, Day 17 (and Five Minute Friday): long

The Five Minute Friday word is “long” at the end of a day which I’ve noticed as long.

another shot, of another October, because it is long

The rest of today seems obscured behind two evening hours spent by lamplight in a living room with open windows, reading a book and listening to the thousand night-voices outside: crickets, cicadas, frogs, coyotes, owls.

Long days seem to accentuate longings; they leave me feeling stretched and empty.

But in answer to our longings, we have assurances:

The long lovingkindness of our God — from everlasting to everlasting.

His long knowledge of us — from before the foundation of the world.

His riches long stored up for us, hidden for ages and generations but now revealed — Christ in us, the hope of glory.

He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul He fills with good. Today I notice this, and I am glad.

  1. Love your writing. Loved the first line, “The rest of today seems obscured behind two evening hours spent by lamplight in a living room with open windows”…almost felt I was there, lazily soaking it all in…!
