Following the light

Standard

My eyes were arrested by the beauty of the light shining through the arbor on my way to the parking garage after work.  Again, at home I was taken aback by what looked like lights left on upstairs.  As I walked into the room I discovered it was the sun shining through the window on our  pendulum light then onto the wall behind then from the wall behind the pendulum to the opposite wall.  Awesome!!!image

To an Audience of One we raise our arms. To an Audience of One we bend and twirl and jump and throw our mud in wildest joy! For from You and to You and for You all things exist and only You, O God, are worthy of THE DANCE!

Flowers, Sagamore Bridge, Cape Cod Canal, Plimouth Plantation

Standard

Our last vacation day was going to be a ferry trip to Nantucket island.  Again, a lifelong dream of mine.  But we had a late start and discovered the round trip alone would take 4 hours of our time.  That and our late start became the deciding factors for creating plan “B” which turned out to be the most awesome and  wonderful day ever!!!  We set out looking for antique row and ended up visiting a gorgeous farm and jams store.  It had a lovely pond, a small reptile zoo and wonderful gardens.  As our search progressed we stumbled upon an enormous bridge spanning the Cape Cod canal. This canal, built between 1933-1935 is the widest canal on the planet.  It shortened the trip around the Cape from 3 days to 30 minutes!  It was in exploring the jetty next to the mouth of the canal we met several new friends that helped fill in the blanks on the history of the region.  Then,  finally as we were overlooking a bluff we met a skateboarding girl that suggest we check out The Plimouth Plantation. The visitor center provided tours of an actual indian village, a pilgrim village, a craft center and a replica of the Mayflower.  All areas were staffed with real indians and people dressed and in character of the period.  It was phenomenal!

When I consider the works of Your hands I am in awe that I am one of your fabulous creations.  Such imagination, creativity, wisdom, joy and purpose in all Your design.  Thank You for the many gifts You have lavished upon me Jesus.  You are the eye in the center of all my storms.  You take my fractured circumstances and weave the drama, disappointments, failures and limitations into a masterpiece of redemption.  If God be for me who can be against me?  Whom shall I fear?  You are outside the box having no limitations.  You exist in every dimension, time and space all at once.  You have created it all.  There is nothing I have ever done, thought or said or experienced or will encounter that surprised or distanced You from me.  You, o God are my defender and hope.  You inhabit
the praises of Your people and so I praise You.  May all who hear and all who see celebrate with me my Great God!  Amen.

Prayers and Musings Along The Path: a photojournal

Standard

Sometimes treasures get buried at the bottom of a pile. This is my opening intro to WordPress. I love the pictures and the journey was sometimes hard and required resolve to press on. I hope you hang in here with me. This is a glimpse into my evolving relationship with God. It was once said the unexamined life is not worth living. I invite you to walk this path with me. I pray you find not only blessings but begin to develop your own conversation with God in Jesus Christ.

Photo to collage

Standard

Want to display your favorite photos all together on one canvas?  Below is a sample of how I did just that.  I collected an assortment of my favorites, organized, painted MOD PODGE on the canvas and the back of each picture then let it all dry.  After everything was well fixed in place I used a wide paint brush and painted over the pictures on canvas with MOD PODGE using a broad x shaped stroke.  When it dried the pictures became clear and the brush strokes gave it a cool painted look.
