All Things Bright and Beautiful


“All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small; all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.” Cecil Frances Alexander (1818 – 1895)

And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” Genesis 1:20

An Alabama photographer captured stunning photographs of a cardinal so rare that experts have referred to it as ‘one in a million.’ (Pinterest)

No matter the source, all things bright and beautiful are a sight to behold these days. Happy Sunday.

A Picture of Thanks


Today’s reading in “Our Daily Bread” was about a photograph taken by Eric Enstrom in 1918. The article described the photograph so vividly that I could see it in my mind’s eye and wanted to see it for real, and so I Googled the photographer and lo and behold…

It reminds me of “Give us this day our daily bread,”

Happy Wednesday.

He Will Hold You Up


This photo of my newest great-grandchild and her father spelled trust to me the moment I looked at it. It reminded me of Isaiah 41:10…“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

From the time of your birth to life’s final day, He will hold you up. Happy Sunday.

Steeple Space


I love how the steeple has its own space amid the trees. This is where I spend my Sundays with my church family, one of whom took this photo; another instance of seeing more than you are looking at. Surely the Lord is in this place. Genesis 28:16
