Have you noticed how some things change so quickly, while others hardly change at all ?
I took this neighbourhood photo the other day, and realized that it looks pretty much the same here as it did in 1888.
That year, George Eastman invented the Kodak camera, and it became possible to create memories through photographs. If a photo had been taken here in that year, it would have looked pretty much the same as mine, except in black-and-white, and without telephone poles, or a vehicle.
Lawns are relatively recent here. In the past, grass grew long, and was used to feed livestock.
Our neighbour lets his grass grow naturally.
Every time I pass this field, I think of the Scripture verse Isaiah 40:8, which reminds us that grass withers, and flowers fade, but God’s word endures forever.
