“Instead, his delight is in the Lord's instruction, and he meditates on it day and night. He is like a tree planted beside streams of water that bears its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.” (Psalms 1:2-3 HCSB)

just weeds

It’s interesting what you can see just walking through a grassy field. Yeah, summer is gone, flowers are gone, green is gone, winter is on us and everything is dead looking. But still when I look closely… it’s pretty intriguing… to me anyway. And at times, fun to take pictures of.


this old house

Old houses. Man, don’t you love ‘em? I pass by one and wonder what it looked like new… and what it would take to make it new again.

My wife and I were driving home from some errand the other day and passed in front of where they’re building a huge distribution warehouse on the site where a farm used to be. I had been by there a couple days before and noticed the old farm house still standing in a grove of trees at the corner of the property, three stories tall and made of cut stone bordered by a stone wall around the yard. “You’ve got to see this old house,” I told my wife.

As we turned the corner, we saw the smoke from a diesel engine and there sat a big yellow Caterpillar in the front yard. The only thing still standing of the once fine home was one corner room; the rest was just so much rubble.

I’m sure it won’t be long until progress reduces this old house to rubble as well.

“"Again, GOD's Message: "'I'll turn things around for Jacob. I'll compassionately come in and rebuild homes. The town will be rebuilt on its old foundations; the mansions will be splendid again.
(Jeremiah 30:18 MSG)


new convert?

As my wife and I drove around the countryside, she wanted to pause and watch this farmer unload his corn. “Here,” I offered. “Take a picture of him,” and I handed her a Zorki. Here’s the resulting shot of my wife taking her first picture with an FSU camera. New convert? Ahhhh……… I wouldn’t bet on it. But since it has the reflection of her sweet hand, I think it’s a pretty good shot.

"At that time the deaf will hear word-for-word what's been written. After a lifetime in the dark, the blind will see. The castoffs of society will be laughing and dancing in GOD, the down-and-outs shouting praise to The Holy of Israel.” (Isaiah 29:18-19 MSG)

”The servant went back and told the master what had happened. He was outraged and told the servant, 'Quickly, get out into the city streets and alleys. Collect all who look like they need a square meal, all the misfits and homeless and wretched you can lay your hands on, and bring them here.' "The servant reported back, 'Master, I did what you commanded--and there's still room.” (Luke 14:21-22 MSG)


moving day

We helped some friends move from apartment to house a couple of weeks ago. I snapped this shot in the after-move coffee break. She’s dog-tired, but glad to be in her own home.

Not sure what this ol’ boy’s name is, but if push comes to shove, I hope he’s on my side.

”Why, we even saw the Nephilim giants (the Anak giants come from the Nephilim). Alongside them we felt like grasshoppers. And they looked down on us as if we were grasshoppers." Numbers 13:33 MSG
