Foto Friday - Who's There?

They're used as portals
to allow us to pass through from one place to another 
and can be opened and closed 
some are locked and some are not 
and many are slammed 
they mark an entrance and and exit 
and some a beginning and an end 
sometimes we leave them open 
for the possibility of change 
and sometimes we shut them out of fear
some are used for privacy
and some are secret and can't be found
we have all tried at times to put our foot in one
and some that just seem to do nothing but revolve 
we can beat a path to one
and some we have left unanswered
but if we're lucky enough we may hold the key
that leads to the one of another's heart
  and although there are times we may feel we journey 
through them on our own
He is always with us, we are far from alone. 

Luke 11:9 So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

 Doors are tricky things . . . sometimes I spend so much time trying to open
(okay, shake) doors not meant to open and perhaps because it's not yet time, that I miss
entirely the open ones before me. I try to remind myself that God is my doorkeeper, the one who
opens and closes them and that I won't know if a door is closed until I try to enter it.
Its taken me my lifetime to realize that many doors have to close in order for an open
door to become evident and that I need to practice leaving the door of my heart always open to God
so that I won't have to worry about hearing His knock.
I am blessed to know and thankful that because of God's grace he is always granting me open
doors of opportunity and I just pray for the faith to enter them and the wisdom to choose the right ones.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends,
and thank you for being here at my door!

Love, Kim

DOORS!!! I love doors and Kim, you captured a bunch of really cool ones. And I love your writing. You are really gifted at writing as well as photography. This also gives me an idea to keep an eye out for doors when I travel to Calif, as there are some neat homes in the older part of the town I will be in. Great foto friday!!!
