Shifting Sands

Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.
Marcus Aurelius

Time has always proven the master of any and all Empires. As soon as a people grow complacent, change will come. . .Empires, be they realms, kingdoms, countries, states–or be they personal fame and fortune, will all eventually fade from sight. As they are built on the shifting sands of humanity. If you believe otherwise, you are merely deceiving yourself—only one Kingdom will withstand the test of time—

To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and made us to be a kingdom, priests serving his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Look! He is coming with the clouds;
every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him;
and on his account all the tribes of the earth will wail.
So it is to be. Amen.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

Rev 1:4-8

  1. Is that something you built on the beach, missy? Loved the pictures and the quotes and your thoughts. Indeed His Kingdom will be the only thing that stands in the end. And rightfully so. Love, N

    • I am not the architect nor the builder–I merely happened upon the erosion—of which put me in the mind of fading glories 🙂 anything for a little inspiration to be sure 🙂
      Home now, but always still wishing I was at the ocean’s edge–sadly my husband is not a beach person but kindly appeases me with a few days here and there so I can get my “beach fix” and he can eat the seafood he so loves 🙂
