Photo Challenge (Day 1)

Thank you to Miss Squid once again for another fun blog nomination! This one is the “Photo Challenge,” and there will be five days with a new theme each day. The rules are…

1) the photo must be taken the day of the post
2) it must be an original photo

I’ve kept this blog strictly text-oriented, but I told Miss Squid that I would “break the rules” this time. ūüôā After all, it’s good to have a change. I don’t have a fancy camera–just my family’s¬†point-and-shoot–but I love¬†the artistic side¬†of photography.

Today’s word is “intricate”¬†

There just happened to be a rain storm this afternoon, leaving the grass glittering with droplets of this much needed gift from above (we’ve had a drought here in Alabama). And that is where I discovered this lovely white clover.¬†Yahweh¬†designed even¬†the weeds to be intricate and beautiful. His Creation amazes me.

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Isaiah 40:8

{P.s.¬†This song was playing as I was writing this post–pretty fitting.}

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

And here’s another one for good measure, because it makes me smile. ūüôā

“The earth without ‘art’ is just ‘eh’.”

This Little Heart

This little heart
Held in Your hands
Must surrender
And trust in Your plans
Sometimes it’s so¬†hard
To know what will be
And at times I lose sight
Of Your goodness to me
Though You¬†don’t promise to answer
Every question I have
You do promise to lead me
By Your rod and Your staff
And satisfy my soul
With all I could need
Oh, give me the faith to believe
That You are doing more
Than I could dream
Painting a picture
From heaven’s point of view
That will change the world
And bring glory to You
Oh, remind me that You
Hold the pen in Your hand
Help me to trust in Your plan
