Sun


A cool shot into the sun that my sister took

~ Took these pics of sunflowers on a bright, sunny day 😀 Can you see the bee on the last three?

Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:

Blossoms


~ Took this pic of apple blossoms during a Colorado spring 🙂

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.

Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

Chick-fil-a


(these pictures were taken by our family at VisionHeirs’ awesome Living History Days)

August 1 was designated Chick-fil-a Appreciation Day, to support the company and its CEO Dan Cathy for his commitment to the Biblical principle of traditional marriage—marriage between one man and one woman. Our family visited a restaurant at about 9:45 pm yesterday, and were told that many Chick-fil-a stores had to close because they had run out of stock! At other locations, lines stretched down the street; August 1 was a day of record sales for Chick-fil-a! We are so glad. Let us continue to support the company and others like it, that dedicate to stand behind the principles of the Bible.

Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
~ Psalm 106:3 ~

Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
~ Isaiah 3:10 ~

Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed.
~ Isaiah 56:1 ~

Fruit 1


~ Some pics I took of peaches, one of my favorite fruits!

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

~ Genesis 1:11-12 ~

Esther Doll


Trinity Christian City International is Trinity Broadcasting Network‘s (TBN) building in Southern California.  TCCI is such a fun place to visit—they have gardens, fountains, a cafe, a gift shop, a museum with paintings, sculptures and ancient Bibles, a recreation of the Via Dolorosa, and a really cool movie theatre where they show movies TBN has made: The Revolutionary 1, The Revolutionary 2, The Emissary, Omega Code, Megiddo, and One Night With the King–the Bible story of Queen Esther (click the names to watch the movie :)). On certain nights they do free live recordings of their “Praise the Lord” TV program. Lots to do and see! 😀  (Find your local TBN TV station here.)

We recently visited TCCI with our grandfather and he got some gifts for his grandkids at the gift shop. I got this neat little Esther doll.  She’s about 5 inches tall. Although I plan on recreating some of Esther’s “One Night With the King” dresses for her, I really like the outfits she came with—a peasant one, including a brown tunic and pink top with a rope belt and tambourine…

                

…and a queen outfit, a shiny white dress with orange trim and a necklace.

               

Isn’t it pretty? 🙂

This doll is a special part of my collection.

Flag Day


(June 14 is Flag Day in the USA)

~ I took these pictures in Western Colorado

Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

~ Psalm 60:4 ~

Sand


~ Pic taken by me on a CA beach

How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.

~ Psalm 139:17-18 ~

Hills


~ Some pictures I took of the beautiful Colorado Rockies 🙂

For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is His also.

~ Psalm 95:3-4 ~
