April 3rd 2020 Sunset

Well… I meant to post this Saturday but I got wrapped up in a book. Then I meant to share Sunday and… I got wrapped up in the same book. 😅 So here it is today before I start reading again and forget! 😂

Friday night’s sunset was amazing.

And it kept getting better and better.

I waited a few minutes and it changed to this:

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Psalm 19:1

No filters here – this is actually what it looked like.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse… Romans 1:20

I took potatoes for granted.

(In light of Coronavirus / COVID-19 , I felt this post was needed today – I’ve moved Angel’s post up to another day. 😉 )

It was weird to see signs such as these in the supermarket.

I took full shelves for granted.

I took being able to go to town for granted.

I took paper products for granted.

I took potatoes for granted.

When you’re no longer able to get things you buy regularly, you suddenly realize how much you took for granted. This was last Monday; I don’t know what the state of the supermarket is today. I’m thankful we bought potatoes the week before.


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34

Through it all, God is faithful.

The God who created these intricate flowers is in control. Through it all, He is in control.

The God who created mushrooms is in control.

The God who created bugs is in control.

The God who created frogs is in control.

The God who created cats and kittens is in control.

The God who created dogs and puppies is in control.

The God who created the heavens and the earth and everything in them is in control.

The God who created works of art like this is in control. The Creator of all is in control, even when it feels like everything is spiraling. May we trust Him during this hard time. ❤

How are you all doing? Are you in quarantine where you live?

If you have time during this quarantine, I highly recommend this short movie from Living Waters. Its only 29 minutes long. 🙂

 

As The Flower Of The Grass


“All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the LORD endures forever.”
Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. (First Peter 1:24-25)


As I was looking through my photos, I found this one (among many others I plan to share eventually 😅) that I haven’t shared yet, and I thought of this verse. I haven’t made one of these in a while, so I thought I would. I love how there is a promise of the word of the Lord enduring forever in these verses. ❤

Hope you are having a great Monday! ❤

P.S.: I’m catching up with comments – I love reading and responding to you all, but I’ve been busy the past couple of weeks. 🙂

Full Hunter’s Moon 2019

Each month the full moon has a name. October is a Full Hunter’s Moon. The name comes from Native American lore. (September is Full Corn Moon, which explains the lyrics from Pocahontas’ song, Colors Of The Wind. I didn’t get that until now. XD If you want to read more about how each full moon got its nickname, here is where I got the info: https://www.almanac.com/content/full-moon-names)

I made it my mission to go out and not only see it but get photos as it came up over the horizon. The only problem was, there were trees in the way. I could sort of see it through the trees but really, it made it look like the trees were on fire.

…it didn’t go as I planned. I kept changing angles and trying to see the full moon but there were too many trees. I’m not sure how long it took me, but I finally saw that I could use the trees to my advantage to frame the moon:

So instead of a bunch of fails, I started getting images like this, which I was at least sort of satisfied with.

My favorite photo of the night didn’t show the orange as much because the moon had moved away from the horizon, but the framing was pretty great:

The next full moon, the Full Beaver Moon, will be on the 12th of November. I hope I remember because I want to try getting photos of that full moon too. Hope to see you then! ❤
