# 68 Sunset


In photography we talk about the "golden hour". That time at sunrise or sunset that the light is perfect for capturing just the right shot. I have been working on learning more about light and photography. What a great time to spend some quiet time, either first thing in the morning or later in the evening. Enjoy the long summer days because soon they will fade.

Psalm 19: 1-4

The heavens are telling the glory of God;

    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech,
    and night to night declares knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words;
    their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world.

# 67 Mistakes

I was reminded this week that we all make mistakes, or you might say like this guy above get in over our head! It is never fun and most times the result is not what we hoped for either. Mistakes are a part of life, I have heard it said that if you never make mistakes than you are not doing anything!
It doesn't make it any easier when its YOUR mistake.
Give your self the grace to not be perfect, just learn from your mistake!

A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.

James 3
 For we all make many mistakes, and if any one makes no mistakes in what he says he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also. If we put bits into the mouths of horses that they may obey us, we guide their whole bodies. Look at the ships also; though they are so great and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So the tongue is a little member and boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire!
And the tongue is a fire.

I am sure you know by now I love a good quote! When someone sends me a quote or a bible verse that I do not know well, I can't wait to use it. There is so much wisdom in the written Word. I use many of the quotes I find to try and encourage you to stay positive! 

Jeremiah 29
11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord,

# 65 Sight

We must all at some time take a hard look at ourselves. Take a look at what we are doing and where we are going in life. I once read that gr(ow)th hurts, that's why it has OW in the middle! I have been doing quite a bit of reading over the past year to try and "grow" my knowledge. It does take time and commitment. It is sometimes painful to get outside of our comfort zone..and quit watching so much TV!

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.

Isaiah 5 20-22
Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
    and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
    and shrewd in their own sight!
