One path to heart-peace and rest.

“There is no royal road to rest of soul. Let that never be forgotten. There is only one way to the Father – Jesus Christ. One door into heaven – Jesus Christ. One path to heart-peace and rest – Jesus Christ. By that way all laboring and heavy-laden ones must go, whatever their rank or condition.
“Kings in their palaces and paupers in the workhouse, all are on the same level in this matter. All alike must walk in the ‘old paths’ and come to Christ, if they feel soul-weary and thirsty. All must drink of the same fountain, if they would have their thirst relieved.”
~ J.C. Ryle
The Upper Room, “The Good Way”, 89.

If I win, it solves one Christmas gift for the son in law - pastor/electrician in training. :)
The photo BTW is one of my first attempts at HDR photography. I took this photo at the Willows golf course and converted it to HDR using Photomatrix Pro.Click on the photo to see the full effect.

Well thank you "Blushing Bride". It does have a surreal fell to it. I should do more HDR photos - but they are best on landscapes and since snow is just around the corner, that might not happen for a while.

Wow, that is a gorgeous photo and I love the quote. It's always nice to "meet" a sister in Christ! Thanks for your kind note on my blog.
