  1. Hey Todd
    Thanks for this.
    3 pictures.
    The first is of 2 houses with large open portico porches, these face each other. Doors open or no doors at all.
    The second is wide open space probably a wheat field.
    The third is a collection of pottery pots filled with some liquid, placed as if some one is still finding and filling more.
    I like the houses bc my wife and I have always romanticized community living and it brings me to this idea with JC.
    The field of wheat always represents expansiveness but also the breeze is so apparent in a field as you can see it move before you feel it or hear it.
    The jars might be preparation for a party filled with wine.

    Thanks Todd.


    1. Hi Jon,
      Those are rich images! I am enjoying pondering them with you. May so many fields draw you to a portico of celebration with Jesus and the universe…Have a great day. I look forward to more from you!
      And Peace,
