Little Miss Beka crowned with my shadow. I love this picture. To me it shows the role of a Mom as a child grows and develops their own faith and life skills. You're still always there, you're just not always in the foreground. You're in the background, waiting, praying, pondering...knowing you'll know when to step from shadow into flesh, and when to step back again.
We love being together, so even our shadows are friends. Good foreshadowing for the years to come, I hope and pray.
Shadows flee when the sun hides its brilliance. Job compares our lifespan to a fleeting shadow.
Job 8:9, "for we were born only yesterday and know nothing, and our days on earth are but a shadow."
Everything on earth is a heavenly reminder. Next time you see the length of your shadow, think of your length of days. When your fleeting days are over, will you be with the Son who casts your shadow - who gives you every breath while you are alive?
