Mushroom Mania

With this post, I’m going to be killing two birds with one stone. The Daily Post prompt for today is mushrooms – and I happen to love photographing mushrooms, and I’ve been photographing them for years. And Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge this week is M (must have two M’s in the word – and Mushroom is perfect)! So here comes a variety of God’s mushroom creations! 🙂




Pray Now

Pray Now

As God plants seeds, so does the devil
Planting seeds of many kinds of evil

Resist and he
Will surely flee

Just as we have many defenses in place
He has many weapons in his storage space

Doubt is poison
Depression is prison

How do I praise My Lord no matter how I feel?
Isn’t it better to wait until the sadness I heal?

No, pray now
He will show how

When we know not what to pray for as we ought
The Spirit guides and puts it inside our heart.

How to pray
Throughout the day

Without ceasing, as the Word demands it.
Rejoice at all times; how, when my spirit

Is downcast?
Will it last?

No, have hope, have hope inside
Then go to His throne and abide

If only I believe
He will relieve

The sadness inside my soul
Before it swallows me whole.

Into Him I press
His name I bless

The Lord gives and He takes away, by and by;
Blessed be the name of the Lord on High!


Likewise, the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (Romans 8:26)

Pray without ceasing. (First Thessalonians 5:17)

Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of Thy countenance. In Thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in Thy righteousness, shall they be exalted. For Thou art the glory of their strength… (Psalm 89:15-17)

“Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD!” (Job 1:21)

Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos Challenge – Bonus Post!

Thank you to Miriam from The Shower of Blessings for nominating me for the Seven Days Seven B&W Photos Challenge! The challenge: Post seven black and white photos, no people, no explanation, of everyday life. These are the runner-ups that almost got chosen to be featured for a day, but I decided to go with a different photo, but I thought they deserved an honorable mention:
