The Door




Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelations 3:20
The Door That Never Closes




A door is a symbol of transition, sometimes a thing of beauty, sometimes not, when we pass through a door, we change.

There are old ones, new ones, modern ones. They might enter into a mall, a restaurant, a friends home, a museum or our own home.





There is always something on the inside that we seek. Eating, sight seeing, buying, coffee or seeking the comfort we feel when we leave our day behind and sigh as we enter our own door , Home At last.

That scripture and picture is interesting because there is no doorknob on the outside. We have to open up the door for him. Great post.

I like the red door that lead me into my Lords heart. The door was open and I walked in at 21 as my Savior and Lord.

I am glad he chosed me and I him.

I have never been sorry.

Yes the rest of doors are attractive.

Very meanful soul searching red door to others. What is behind that # 1.

I love the red door, I bet it is a church. And the strange house with the heron on the door and the plants in huge soup plates!!! Looks like they may blow away in a big storm. So you have the beautiful and the strange. And oh YES, the frightening...you could not pay me to stand on one of those balconies.

Ginny said...

P.S. we have a McAllisters here, have you ever eaten there?

What a wonderful collection of doors. I can't decide which one I like best but the red one and the one with the fountain out front are at the top of my list. I also really like the clock in the third photo down.
