On my desk today (obviously, I used the push and shove method to clear up some space) is a lovely Madonna and Child ATC from Voula...
and a page from my prayer journal for the reading today. This verse reminds me of our recent visit to Mount Nebo in Jordan, the place where Moses viewed the Promised Land.
It was a rainy, foggy day when we went there, so we didn't get to see the view of Israel. We didn't even get to see this landmark and had to resort to taking pictures of pictures hanging on the wall of the chapel there...
Sometimes in life, we can't see our own promised lands. We can't see how God's going to answer our prayers, we can't see how His promises will come to pass.
Our vision is blurred by the fog and rain of fears, doubts, and all sorts of other things.
I did manage to get a picture of this landmark. Even if the guide didn't tell me, I would know this is Mount Nebo because of this landmark. And I know that the view is there even if I didn't see it that day.
