This morning, like a lot of mornings, I went out on my back deck to greet God. For a change it was nice out. With camera in hand I got these few shots.
Eyes Of God
I have been called smart by some and crazy by others. First and foremost, I am faith driven. As an artist I guess I tend to see things differently than a lot of people but I consider that a good thing.
These photos are simple enough but the feeling I get when I take them is much for complex. Daily we are reminded of God’s love even though we may not even realize it.
Just for one day, make a note of how God presents himself to you. Use your senses to identify that small miracle, feeling or event that could not be explained any other way.
Don’t be so busy in your life that you fail to acknowledge the presence of God in your life because he will remind you he is there! Now more than ever as we fight a spiritual war it is important that God’s people unite together! It doesn’t matter what your race is, what you normally believe, what your sexuality is, it matters that you stop what you are doing right now and ask for God’s forgiveness. Ask him to be a part of your life. Ask him to walk with you through this spiritual war so that you won’t be alone.
God is not too busy for you….don’t be too busy for him.
While I have been busy with crafts and other things, I have also pondered what to write about. I don’t like to just throw things into a blog but to find things meaningful to write about. Maybe I don’t write every day, sometimes not even every week, but I hope my few posts have meaning for you in some small way.
As you have seen in previous blogs I am a history buff. Yesterday I went and took a few pictures of our Confederate monument which our evil government moved from its original location so that it would not offend anyone. It offended me and hundreds of other loyal patriots that love this country. They stuck it out among trees away from public view. They have greatly dishonored those that this monument represent. It doesn’t represent any particular race, it represents the hard cold battle that was fought on our soil to maintain control of their land and their inheritance. I don’t care whether you think the war was right or wrong, just respect those who died that we might live!
The next time you see a civil war monument, don’t just turn you nose up at it and walk away…..take a moment and take it in and then research it. You just might learn something of value!
Have a great and blessed day.
PS I have visited many monuments and stood at the graves of great heros.
I have been waiting patiently for a particular lily in my yard to bloom. She has been watered and talked to and pampered more than any other plant in my yard. When my husband took the dog out this morning I heard him holler for me to come to the backyard. I threw on my clogs and out I went. He pointed to the particular lily in question. There she was…not partially open but in her full glory. Here are different shots of her for you to enjoy. Keep in mind this is a very large bloom approximately 6-8″ across.
Hope you enjoyed my morning delight. Have a wonderful day.
While cleaning out more space in my office I found another photo CD that I had apparently forgotten to transfer to my computer. These pictures were taken with my manual Canon AE1 so it had been a while since I had seen these.
While I suddenly feel the need to purge a lot of things, I came across a Walmart CD that contained pictures. Of course I had to pop it into my drive to see exactly what was on it. It contained pictures of a friend’s children and horses that I took probably more than ten years ago. I will only show the horses and other pictures out of respect for their privacy.
Above picture is the top of Pilot Mountain and this is the view looking down.
Hope you enjoy. Funny how things appear just when you need something to write about.
I had not been up long. My husband opened the back door to let the dog out and yelled “you should take a picture of this”. So I grabbed my camera and went to the back door. The fog was so dense all I could see clearly was the end of my yard. I went to the back of my lot to get this shot.
This is on the opposite side of my yard. Weather conditions are great for creating a delusion. Looking at this shot don’t you feel like the world just ends at the horizon.
Even in questionable or bad conditions you can get decent shots. I have gotten out in the rain, snow and even during the eye of a hurricane to get that one shot that might have a little something different.
