This morning I read Colossians 3:12-17 in my Bible. It is a passage in which the Apostle Paul gives us a list of virtues we ought to have, and ought to display.
This one gets the honor of being my Photo of the Day because it was recently licensed through my Adobe Stock account. It was made during a break in driving as we pulled over at a welcome center on the Georgia/South Carolina border. I don’t recall having ever seen tent caterpillars before, and I found […]
This Christmas season I have been thinking a bit about Immanuel. Not the person, but the meaning. God with Us. This post was started a few days ago, posted, and then realizing it wasn’t quite what I wanted to say I took it back down to do some editing.
“The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:5 When the only thing someone has ever known is darkness, it is hard to understand the Light. So the Father sent the Light into the world in the form of his own Son. It was an incredible plan. An unbelievable […]
Now that we have moved beyond Thanksgiving I guess we can start talking about Christmas. Yesterday the fall decorations were packed away and taken back into the attic until next year. Soon, maybe even today, the holiday decorations will be brought down and our Christmas season will officially get underway. That means I can begin […]
Last year’s Thanksgiving post got out a little late. Truthfully, it was a lot late. I wrote, “I’m late, and left wondering if anyone will actually see this post. It’s the day before Thanksgiving after all.” There were only 14 views of last year’s post, according to my stats report. Even though that translates into […]
The chaotic would we live in is nothing new. Some would argue with me, and some have. That’s fine. They’re entitled to their opinion, and I am happy to leave them to it. Though I find other’s opinions valuable, I continue to reserve the right to disagree. When it comes to there being nothing new, […]
Amazing Love From the very foundation of creation God has had in place a plan to redeem mankind. Though the first humans, God’s ultimate creative work, created in His image, chose to rebel and turn away from their Creator, He was not willing to forsake them. Love deeper than the ocean, mercy reaching further than […]
“Love each other in the same way I have loved you,” Jesus commands us. What exactly is the “way” Jesus loves us? Jesus continues with the answer, “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” Jesus loved us with a sacrificial love. It is a love that […]
There is a place I had wanted to visit since I first found out about it. It is a beach located on the north end of Jekyll Island. I had seen a lot of incredible images of Driftwood Beach from other photographers, and there was no doubt that I would one day find myself there […]
Over the past several days we have had a few deer visit our yard and the trees across the creek. They come here for the abundance of food available, both outside our yard and inside. Here is a short (under two minutes) video slideshow of one of the recent visits. I suspect that hidden not […]
Preparing to write a Memorial Day post this morning, I looked back over other Memorial Day post I had written. I could find only one, and it was not written specifically for Memorial Day. It is a post about a hero by the name of Delton E. “Wally” Walling, a survivor of the attack on […]
I’m not usually a fan of Sauvignon Blanc, but this Etnico Sauvignon Blanc from Scout & Cellar is an exception. It was great with the risotto we had for dinner, and notes of green apple on the nose with grapefruit and citrus on the palate make a great wine for enjoying anytime. A hint of […]
A few months ago my wife and I took a day trip to the north Georgia mountains. Knowing it was a bit early in the season we still hoped to see some fall color. It was a dark, overcast, rainy day and we didn’t see much color. What little fall color we did see was […]
Making images never really stopped. The pandemic just slowed me down a little, and other priorities have limited time spent on processing photos. There is a huge backlog waiting to be processed, and at the same time I am making more new images. Spring may be the reason It was a slow start this year. […]
