All those in Texas affected by the rains and flooding and hurricane tornadoes are in my heart and prayers.

Pictorial Tuesday 8 22



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.

Am still enjoying pressing and drying flowers. Some from my garden and some wild little daisies:

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.

Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 8 13

Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his. He changes times
and seasons, he sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to
the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.
Daniel 2:20-22 NIV

I pray that you being rooted and established in
love may have power together with all the saints,
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep
is the love of Christ and to know this love that
surpasses knowledge ~ that you may be filled
to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV

In my Reading Through The Bible, I am finally deciding to read Revelations. It's such a daunting book of the Bible, I feel anyway. But, nevertheless, one that if we're reading the complete Bible, I feel I have to read it also. It makes my insides quivery to even read the words.

The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw.

    Pictorial Tuesday 8 8

    The daughter's wedding happened after a two year engagement. The vows were said with a backdrop of the lake, and then a reception aboard a yacht for a mini cruise followed by a honeymoon in Hawaii. The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding. I was a patient mama and didn't call for three days to see if all was okay since they were so far away. haha

    Also sharing some black and white photography for Pictorial Tuesday.

    Pictorial Tuesday 8 1

    Heard pecking and this cute little fellow must have been getting insects off the screen. First I've really seen any yellow and black birds around, but must be over in the nearby woods and not over my way much. Naturally, grabbed the camera and tried not to scare him, but he was so busy I don't think he realized I was on the other side of the window.

    You're next for sharing what you've been shooting. :)

    Happy 1st Day of August 2017 ~ I cannot believe July is over already. Summer is going by waaaaaaayyyy too fast for me. :)
