"Give Me Your Best Shot" is when you take your best photo and post it on Fridays and link up with others who are doing the same thing. Some of us have trouble just picking one,...but I think that's ok. Just click on the button above. Join us,...it's fun! ((smile))
There is nothing better than looking at the beautiful handiwork of our God! It was my first time to see Yellowstone, and I enjoyed it very much. When we saw the geyser, "Old Faithful", I pondered awhile as I sat and watched it,...and it made me think of the Lord's faithfulness to me. I felt like I was in His presence. I always feel like that, when I am out among the trees, or gazing at a lake, or the ocean, or looking at the mountains. As we hiked up to look at a waterfall I again thought of His power.
The Bible says that if we won't praise Him He can cause the stones to cry out! I think they already cry out in praise to our Creator. I love the beauty of the earth!!! Lord,...I praise you!!!!
My last post was a poem about missing my sister who passed away in January. She lived in a very beautiful place,...Brookings, Oregon. When I was going through my pictures to add to that post, I saw a lot of these pictures that we took while we were visiting her once, and I thought of all of the beauty that she lived around.
I had told her many times that she had "heaven right here on earth",...or that "she lived in paradise". Well, she has moved on now to even greater beauty.
I just felt like blogging about the beauty of the earth today,...and to lead us on towards thinking of heaven's beauty. If the Creator gave us such beauty in this world,...just imagine how wonderful Heaven must be!
