A Light Unto My Path

I took this image in May of 2011 in Burlington, Iowa.  I like the way it contrasts the cool blue light with the very yellow light of the street lamps.  Looking at this image I thought of the song that has the words ". . . and a light onto my path." Although all around it is quite dark, there is a clear way to go, where the bright light leads the way.  That song is from Psalm 119:105 in the bible.  That whole psalm is about the Word of God. When David (the writer) calls it a light onto his path, he is saying that the Word of God tells him where to go.  He looks to what God has written to see how to live his life.

I decided to do a search to see if the words "light" and "path" were in any other verses in the bible and found in Proverbs (written by David's son years later) chapter four verse eighteen says "The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day."  Thus, as you follow righteousness (which  is only available through the blood of Jesus) your path will become more and more obvious the longer you follow it.

God bless you.

Some Conference Gifs

When we went up to Madison, Wisconsin for a conference.  No, I don't really have anything pertaining to the actual conference because walking up to someone and asking them for prayer is one thing, but making it into a big photographic ordeal is another.   Enjoy.

Hosanna Doesn't move
Falling Over

He's almost always happy because of Jesus

He only did a third of the requested amount

Flick that Nothing!

Rub that Belly!

He sure does love his chocolate

That's some great emotion right there

You can try to hide from the camera, but it won't always work. And, I think she might have a bug in her eye.

Glowing Flowers

Recently I've focused a lot on making particular plants glow.  No, the first image is not a flower, but I like it a lot.  Actually I call this image "Fire Grass"  Not because it looks like it is on fire, but rather I was thinking more about lightning bugs. I love the way it looks when something is glowing and everything around it is not.  It makes me think of Jesus teaching his disciples to be a city on a hill or a candle that isn't hidden in a basket.  But I also just like how it looks. Here are a couple more:

The Brewer Wedding, Ravina on the Lakes

Yes, this was over a month ago, but it was a great wedding.  Enjoy the floating bags, flying hats, and the application of glasses, among other things.
