Gateway to memories - photo art

Here's a spiffed up view of the gateway to where I spent many of my growing years. "The Farm" was well known in the district being an orchard producing wonderful citrus and stone fruits as well as having chooks for eggs. The navels oranges were wonderful--large, juicy with incredible flavour.
The main stone fruits were plums and peaches. Mum used to make endless jars of jam, especially plum jam. We'd eat fresh plums, cooked plums with custard, plum jam, plums and more plums until I was satiated and now don't eat them if I have the choice.
Anyway, that's all in the distant past now. The gate, path, and house still exist but the fruit trees and chooks are long gone.

God's wisdom -- our circumstances

"If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all..." James 1:5 NIV

When we tap into God's wisdom, it's amazing how clearly things come into focus. With God's wisdom comes a remarkable absence of fear. We're no longer intimidated by circumstances or the opinions of those around us.
