Flower Pot Man

Here is a man made from flower pots
And for today that’s all I gots.




“Isn’t it obvious that a potter has a perfect right to shape one lump of clay into a vase for holding flowers and another into a pot for cooking beans? If God needs one style of pottery especially designed to show his angry displeasure and another style carefully crafted to show his glorious goodness, isn’t that all right?”
Romans 9

The Change

We were in the car going somewhere at sunset. And within about 20 minutes, the sky changed in all these ways. I am posting in order. Watching the difference amazed me.






“For Jesus doesn’t change—yesterday, today, tomorrow, he’s always totally himself.”
Hebrews 13

Fame

These art pieces were made by kids in grade school! They were displayed in a local museum, along with other talented kid's work. Do you recognize the two famous faces?




“The purity of silver and gold is tested by putting them in the fire; The purity of human hearts is tested by giving them a little fame.”
Proverbs 27

Be Our Guest

Yesterday, we spent the evening with our three granddaughters. Come along and see what a goofy visit we had. Dinner was bought at THREE different places, in order to accommodate everyone's preferences! Here we are being silly.


We watched "Booty & The Beast". Our middle girl has trouble pronouncing the word "beauty." I leave the jokes to you.

Joke glasses were tried on.


Phil joined in the playing.

Anne Marie built a heart kite and a wall out of Dominoes.


And at the end of Booty & The Beast, everyone went home very happy!

Now I need to get MY booty off to bed.

“I saw the Beast and, assembled with him, earth’s kings and their armies, ready to make war against the One on the horse and his army.”
Rev. 19

Here Is The Church

And here is the steeple.




Brightness everywhere! The way a rainbow springs out of the sky on a rainy day—that’s what it was like. It turned out to be the Glory of God! When I saw all this, I fell to my knees, my face to the ground. 
Ezekiel 1

The Blogging O' The green

We were at a science museum, and they were setting up for a banquet. The front door was wide open, and the wind was blowing in.


Green fairies in the night.

A Green Ride

What do you get when you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover?  A rash of good luck. 

“Take a lesson from the fig tree. From the moment you notice its buds form, the merest hint of green, you know summer’s just around the corner.”
Mark 13

“May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!”
Romans 15

The Books

Isn't this a lovely library room?


This awesome old desk sits in there.

Well, guess what? There are NO books. It is wallpaper in a gift shop. Did I fool you?

This podium IS made of real books, and sits in a college art building.


“There’s no end to the publishing of books, and constant study wears you out so you’re no good for anything else. The last and final word is this: Fear God. Do what he tells you.”

Ecclesiastes 12

The Velociraptor

Sitting on the very edge of a major highway is the fierce Velociraptor. You may recognize him from the Jurassic Park movies.





Velociraptors had feathers,but could not fly. And they were very small, about the size of a turkey.

Their most powerful weapons were the the single curved claws on their hind feet. 

Artist Caesar Morton made him from wood, wisteria, cow bones, teeth, sand, walnuts, stingray egg casings, and pine cones. I did not recognize any of the materials except these pine cones.

So there you have him, in all his gory glory. Let's hope there are no wrecks.

"God doesn’t hold back on his anger;

even dragon-bred monsters cringe before him."

Pink And The Blue Ridge

Our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains when the sky is pink. Taken on different days.





“I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.”

Psalm 121

The Setting Sun





“The sun stopped in its tracks in mid sky; just sat there all day. There’s never been a day like that before or since—God took orders from a human voice! Truly, God fought for Israel.”

Not A Lobster Anymore.

Some of my followers may remember the Lobster Mailbox. Here is the picture of it that I posted many years ago.

Well, recently it has been remodeled and painted. It looks like this now.



And I learned that all these years, I have been wrong! It is not a lobster! This is the clue.

The raised stinger in the back! It is a scorpion, ewwww! Scorpion Mailbox. I guess I had been in denial.

“Don’t be afraid when living among them is like stepping on thorns or finding scorpions in your bed. Don’t be afraid of their mean words or their hard looks. They’re a bunch of rebels.”
Ezekiel 2
