OUR DAILY LIGHT

Jeremiah 31:35 Thus says the LORD, Who gives the sun for a light by day.

Every day we commute in a routine that is a template of life going to work or shopping, etc., and never, as the old saying goes, “stopping to smell the roses”. Well in this case we are talking about seeing the daily sunrises, sunsets, or the lazy fluffy collection of moisture creating clouds that can stagger anyone’s imagination by their design. The scenes can rival the best works of the master artists of our times. But as we observe these natural phenomena, we can actually feel the warmth, the rain, or the wind blowing which is not possible in the created works of man. Our God provides for us a living masterpiece to enjoy! Now we are able by the mystery of photography to capture these beautiful scenes.

Amos 9:6 He who builds His layers in the sky, And has founded His strata in the earth; Who calls for the waters of the sea, And pours them out on the face of the earth — The LORD is His name.

Oleander

This is a sample of flowers with totally different designs and color aspects. The Thistle grows singularly while the Oleander and the Jerusalem Sage grow in large bunches. The intimate detail are like strokes of paint on a master painter’s canvas.
