Looking Through Old Windows

I love to look through old windows.

It can really be quite different from looking through modern ones.  Somehow the old ones give a person a more interesting perspective.

Even when you keep looking out of the same one, the view may start to change.

Take a step back and it’s different again…

A couple steps more and you have something you might not have expected.  It’s a lot like life, really…

I sometimes wonder who was looking out this window when it was brand new; what could they see out there?

Look closely, click and enlarge the image… Can you see horse-drawn carriages carrying ladies in Victorian finery?  Or men in frock coats with tall top hats? They were once out there… Try with the next one…

Maybe we should try a different window this time; what can you see out there?

I wonder if someone looked out this window when they heard the news about Pearl Harbor or the assassination of President McKinley and tried to make sense of it all… I wonder who all has ever looked out these windows! I wonder if they had a relationship with Jesus Christ; I hope they did!

There are some windows you can’t see out of at all, here are some examples…

Whether you can see out of them or not, whether you can see old things or new, no matter who was here before us, there is one thing that we do know for sure: God is the same yesterday, today and forever; it doesn’t matter how much time goes by or whether or not we understand everything around completely… He loves us and wants a relationship with each and every person.  He is our joy, our comfort and our hope.
