A Place Far Away

I always watch Out Of Africa to bring in the New Year. Is it because it is the movie that inflamed my heart with dreams so long ago, or is it because of its New Year's Eve scene that always comes to mind? Maybe both, either way it takes me to a place of neverending hope...a place far away from the mundane or troubles of today.

"Give me your lantern and compass, give me a map. So I can find my way to the sacred mountain."Psalm 43

"Uniquely yours in a grove of trees, centered in lotus land. Let me graze in lush Bashan as in the days of green Gilead. " Micah 7:14

May hope rise in all its beauty with the promise of a new year. Keep dreaming, keep believing. ox
