Which means winter is coming, but, eh, so what!
“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!”
– Psalm 46:10
For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him.
– Psalm 62:5
Our world is so filled with distraction: constant “breaking news”, entertainment, busy-ness.
What we need is silence, solitude, prayer.
I found this woman in a local park, embracing real life.
Ahhhh…..what a great day. Upper 60’s, partly cloudy, fall is here.
Watching a concert in the park:
Father and son time:
As for Gód, his wáys are pérfect;
the wórd of the Lórd, purest góld.
Hé indéed is the shíeld
of áll who máke him their réfuge.
For whó is Gód but the Lórd?
Whó is a róck but our Gód?
the Gód who gírds me with stréngth
and mákes the páth safe befóre me.
My féet you made swíft as the déer’s;
you have máde me stand fírm on the héights.
You have tráined my hánds for báttle
and my árms to bend the héavy bów.
– Psalm 18
A little different type of photography for me. I’ve been getting more and more interested in showing the amazing dignity and depth of people. People are so much more than the simplified caricatures that the news and entertainment industries portray.
These were from a concert in a local park.
Just out for a walk/drive on a nice cool summer day.
Nice cool day for a walk on a wooded trail. Our camera club had an evening outing in the woods.
I looked at the thunderstorm to the west and the sun and thought,
Sure enough, the sun set right behind the storm and produced a spectacular sight!
“Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world.”English author Eleanor Farjeon
Spring planting near Hokah, Minnesota:
“And the LORD said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch out your hand with your rod over the rivers, over the canals, and over the pools, and cause frogs to come upon the land of Egypt!'”
So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.”
The frogs were really singing near my home!
