With hearts raging pulses of excitement, Bob and I stood in awe of the infamous structure because the Leaning Tower of Pisa is one sight to behold! Other than the world-renown blunder of building the belfry on a soft bed of river sediments causing the sinking of the tower, the entire conglomerate of edifices in the piazza is an architectural masterpiece on its own.
There have been experiments, structural repairs and even closing down of the tower for tourists to climb; in order to save it from further sinking. I have read that they have somehow mitigated its impending collapse and that people from all over can enjoy it for a longer time still.
Many times in life, when we ground our feelings on things that are wavering, we encounter frustrations and regrets; thus sinking us into the depths of sadness and emptiness. This is a poignant reality, but there is always HOPE. The risen LORD always extends HIS hand for us to take; in order to pluck us out of the miry pit we sunk ourselves in. Reach out and seize HIS hand so we can once again stand upright in HIS love and grace.
