Photographs won’t tell the whole story
Behind smiles can lay trials
And broken dreams.
Photographs won’t show you the heartache
Sharp focus is hocus pocus
Where truth lies
Behind twinkling eyes
And well pressed seams.
However, photographs never tell us the ending
They don’t predict the future
And they won’t show us the way.
Don’t despise those forced smiles they have captured
Nor the perfect life they falsely portray
There’s still hope for change on the horizon
And revival for the life of decay.
So don’t despise those stolen memories
Nor the joy that didn’t stay
There’s still hope to be found going forward
There are blessings when God leads the way.

Ask and Choose Your Path Forward
We have a choice to seek, serve and follow Jesus. Or we can choose to travel alone. But for the one who chooses wisely the future holds hope and blessings.
This is what the Lord says:
Stand at the crossroads and look.
Ask which paths are the old, reliable paths.
Ask which way leads to blessings.
Live that way, and find a resting place for yourselves.
But you said that you wouldn’t live that way.Jeremiah 6:16 (GOD’S WORD Translation)
I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.Jeremiah 29:11 (GOD’S WORD Translation)
