Sunday Scripture Blessings 9 17 You're The Breath



I have to admit there is no way that I can sing all the way through or even listen to this song without the tears flowing. He IS the BREATH in OUR LUNGS

He breathed life into us even before we were born as we lay in our mother's womb. He breathed life into our lungs as we emerged into this world, and the most awesome part of his breath was when he took his last on the cross, he breathed life into our lungs as Christians.


You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are you Lord
Cause
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are you Lord

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
-instruments only-
All the earth will shout your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are you Lord

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
x's 6
Pour out our praise to You only
Pour out our praise to You only

On this Sunday or any day as I listen to this song, I can only say Thank You Jesus for the last breath and first breath on the cross. Amen

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up 9 12

I APOLOGIZE to those who came to link up with Pictorial Tuesday. The inlinkz link wasn't working and not sure why. I put in a ticket and it has been fixed. I also apologize to those who did come and get their link in and then it was eliminated. If you still want to link, there is still time as I have extended it, but if not, I sincerely hope you will return next Tuesday.

Our local State Park Lake doesn't have much in the way of beautiful scenery, but people have always enjoyed camping, boating, and fishing as well as walking the trails and other activities of a State Park. This day, hubby and I were fishing, but as always, I take along my camera. I sometimes use my phone camera, but being outside just isn't the best for seeing the screen on a warm Summer's day so this day I took along my older digital.

I was surprised to see what the camera saw that I didn't until I came home and downloaded the photos to the desktop. On the bottom photo, I see that there are a couple of guys fishing on the bank. We were out in the boat quite a way away, and I could hear them, but not see them so clearly. However, my zoom on my camera did a great job of seeing them in the background when I was trying to take a photo of these two birds. So fun what the camera sees vs our eyes.

It was a great day to be outdoors on the water even if the fish weren't really biting. Some of my first dates with my hubby some 54 years ago was his introducing me to fishing. We have gone ever since. I ended up even putting my own worm on the hook after some years; especially when our sons were young because the hubs had enough with helping two little boys. I've taken fish off, but only will take a catfish off if I have a heavy glove.

Now that's my fishing story, and I'm sticking to it. Also, might as well say the one fish I caught was humongous.....(fish tale there). It was nice, but not huge. haha

So, that was our Lake Day last week-end, and some of my photos for the week. Looking forward to what you've been up to shooting and hopefully can share with Pictorial Tuesday.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 9 3



He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds
He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them
Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite
Psalm 147:3-5

In the good times, God is there. In the sad times God is there. I chose this scripture for today's scripture blessing because blessings are indeed needed as those in Texas who suffered the effects of the recent hurricane, and the responders as well need blessings for strength in this sad time. So many places in our world as well are suffering their own floods and ravages from weather. Even with God, we know that there are other forces that affect our lives and safety, but God will see people through the rough times. My heart is so saddened as I watch how, while I'm safe in my home and area, others are devastated with loss of life and home. Families have lost everything, and it is hard to watch without tear filled eyes for all those people. My prayer today is for all who have suffered loss of life and loved ones and home no matter where they are in this world. My heart and prayers go out to Texas, those in other countries that have recently been affected as well from flooding, and fires that rage in parts of our country. God be with.......

Making a butterfly with Adobe Photoshop is so easy so sometimes I'll use the background of my graphic or photo to make one. This one is made from the scripture photo above. Just use the cookie cutter tool, cut wherever you want on your photo (you won't see it, but on the layer you can then add a drop shadow and you will see it). You can re-size to however large or small you want and move it around. If you want to duplicate it, just duplicate the layer or use Alt and right click on the mouse. Anyway, hope you enjoy the butterfly. You can download it HERE
 You're next for sharing a Sunday Scripture Blessing for the week ahead. Hope everyone enjoys and has a nice Labor Day week-end for those that share this holiday in the US.

They look very similar...only difference really is where I point my camera and time of day. Looking forward to seeing what you've been capturing lately.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 8 20


We see so many times in the word that God turns things the way they should go. He did it for Mordecai in the book of Esther. He does it for us every day even when we don't stop and realize.

From my morning reading this Saturday morning:

The little bird that sings in the tree ~ he sings for me. My gift from God in His creation this morning. The song he sings reminds that God is in control. The song reminds that if a little creature as a bird can sing so beautifully ~ how much more are our songs with Love in our hearts. We can rage, we can wail, but to no avail ~ God is in control.

In my daily reading, God is reminding me that when we speak, we should speak with Love ~ Love begets Love and Hatred only fuels worse than hate. And sometimes in that hate, God will use it to send the hater to the gallows (Haman). As in the book of Esther, we are reminded that there is a purpose for all things. A purpose for Queen Vashti to not come before her King. A purpose for Esther to replace Vashti as Queen.

I love the stillness of morning as I sit outside reading the word and drinking my coffee. Razzy loves it too as he accompanies me and lays on the cool cement. My view is not pretty like a well kept neighbors yard ~ rather it is an abandoned building that parts have quickly become a field of weeds. Not even pretty weeds. But as I gaze, a Butterfly I see. Even in the ugly, beauty can be found. God does that. The butterfly may not have found what he needed in the well mowed yards, but he is provided for among the clover in the weed field. As I ponder, I realize that for now, we will still have the ugly until God himself mows it all down. For now, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and beauty still abounds. Have Faith.

Pictorial Tuesday 8 15



It seems for the past few years, as Summer winds down and my flower beds have flourished, but will soon be waning...the flowers I have anyway as I'm not really a green thumb...I have developed a love affair with weeds. It's so fun to find some weeds or wild flowers to photograph, and also a stray mushroom. ~smiles~


For those that fish, no, the photo below isn't a blown up image of a fishing bobber, but to me that's what it looks like. When I took this photo, I didn't notice the similarity. haha It is a tower. What it is for, I have no idea. Are you in agreement that it looks like a bobber?





You're next for sharing some of your photographic finds.
