Bay Flowers

Some months ago, we discovered a lovely bay surrounded by a quiet children's park and dining benches for picnics. Off in the distance, we could see the white little boats sailing on the clear blue water, and the blue and white hills of distant islands melted into the horizon.The view were lovely, a photographer's paradise you might say. But sadly, that day our camera wasn't working all too good... it was nearly out of battery and I couldn't do much zooming, so the pictures were few and some rather blurry. But there were some lovely flowers about, and thankfully I WAS able to take shots of them:




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

Little Shots of Beauty

In the last few days throughout the holidays, I've been able to capture some stuff on my "rainbow lens" as I like to call it, thanks to go being able to go out a bit more often and seeing things. Though sadly, our camera has been playing up a bit with the batteries so it got me frustrated sometimes....
anyway... here are some shots...
enjoy!!!
P.S. you'll notice that in both of my blogs I've made a "grab-my-button" icon. Please feel free to copy the code and place it on your blog! Thanks!








Trust in the LORD, and do good;
         Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
 Delight yourself also in the LORD,
         And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
        Commit your way to the LORD,
         Trust also in Him,
         And He shall bring it to pass.
 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
         And your justice as the noonday. 
Psalm 37: 3-6

Blessing O' the Day


Verse:
"Come, and let us return to the LORD;
      For He has torn, but He will heal us; 
      He has stricken, but He will bind us up. 
       After two days He will revive us; 
      On the third day He will raise us up, 
      That we may live in His sight. 
        Let us know, 
      Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. 
      His going forth is established as the morning; 
      He will come to us like the rain, 
      Like the latter and former rain to the earth."
Hosea 6: 1-3

Dainty Randomness...







Verse:
For You will light my lamp;
         The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
 For by You I can run against a troop,
         By my God I can leap over a wall.
 As for God, His way is perfect;
         The word of the LORD is proven;
         He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

 For who is God, except the LORD?
         And who is a rock, except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength,
         And makes my way perfect.
 He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
         And sets me on my high places.
 He teaches my hands to make war,
         So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 
Psalm 18: 28-34

Spring!!!


While the rest of the world is turning into the chilly, icy weather of Autumn (fall), and eventually winter, I can't tell you how lovely it is to have it Spring here!!!!! Oh, it is still cold, windy and yesterday we had a really powerful rainfall, but Spring is in the air, and that just makes me want to sing! Thank you Lord, for everything so beautiful! I just want to praise you today!
I thought to share with you some of the beauties I've captured of Spring:


























Be blessed in the Lord this day, and may you sing for joy in His unfailing love and faithfulness!
"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!"
In His love,
~Joy

Pink Beauty

Beautiful Carnations....
we got them from a shopping center for Mum one day :)











 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11: 28-30

Update on Gallery Photos

Hi again...
I know I haven't posted any new photography posts lately.
To be totally honest I haven't had much chance to go 'hunting' for the beauty around me as much being busy with school work. But I hope to post more things in the coming days :).


So this post is mainly an update to some of the photos I put up, on the Gallery with some Scripture verses accompanying them. I'd appreciate if you have a peek sometime :).

All Things Bright and Beautiful!


mist of rain from our backyard
Well, the rains have come to us, and spring is only a few days away! It so refreshing to have blessed showers enriching our gardens after the rather dry couple of weeks that have passed. On Saturday at midday when there had been a lull in the shower, I strolled through the garden, camera in hand, and rejoiced in God's faithfulness, in the rain that watered our vegetable garden and made everything so, so green! It reminded me of the hymn... we all know it so well... but I love it so much...


All Things Bright and Beautiful
Refrain:
All things bright and beautiful, 
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful;
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flow'r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.
Refrain 

The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

Refrain

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

Refrain

The tall tees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.
Refrain

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Refrain


Here are some of the shots I took from our garden, they are a very simple little evidence of the beauty of God's handiwork.

 Yes, these are simple strawberry blossoms... and we haven't got any proper fruit from it yet... but aren't they lovely?




Below are some shots from the blueberry bushes... in the few days since I last took a look at them, so many blueberries have bloomed! (still green though)








YES! These are pomegranate  flowers below... not that we have had such bountiful produce from the shrubs themselves; every few months comes a rather petite little red thing with some semblance in taste and look to a pomegranate... but the dew, dripping on the red blossoms, do give a refreshing look, don't they?




Didn't recognize these flowers? They are lemons in bloom....



More rain drops, browned twigs and the beautiful mood of winter that's soon to turn into Spring!



This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
Through the LORD's mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
"The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"Therefore I hope in Him!"
The LORD is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
It is good that one should hope and wait quietly 
For the salvation of the LORD.
Lamentations 3: 21-26


This verse, shared by a friend of mine, truly blessed me yesterday. Earlier I had read this verse and was amazed at the love of the Lord and His compassion for us that never, ever fails! Praise Him!

Might I say that I woke up this morning to an almost cloudless blue sky? It is sooo beautiful!!!! Well, and I decided something... can you guess it? I believe photography has become a hobby of mine! It is so fun to hunt out for beautiful things to take shots of.... Lastly, I best be going :). Today I've got Maths again to work on, and also a good violin practice Lord willing, as my lesson is tomorrow.

May the Lord bless you today as you walk with Him in the narrow path that He has laid out for you. He is our God, and to Him is the glory!
In His eternal, unchangeable love,
~Joy
