The sunrise this morning was absolutely gorgeous! There was a low fog hanging over the ground early and the sky was lighting up beautifully from the sun making its appearance. So I went inside and grabbed my camera and began taking pictures. I'm glad I did. I chose pictures that I thought you would enjoy looking at, as the sun came up. It began by making its appearance in Slide 4. Look closely and you can see the tip of the top of it in this one. You can see how the fog seems to change with more and more light and reflection. In Slide 7 it looks like the sun was burning off the fog pretty fast. But in Slide 9 the fog gives the appearance of being on fire and not burning. It is amazing how color and light has its way with earthly elements. This was so beautiful I just had to share it with you.
This morning was wonderful! There were 15 people at our RV Park's church service. This is the most we've ever seen. Sometimes it is just us and one or two others. There was a family of seven dressed for the beach but yet taking the time out of their morning to worship God. Another man asked if he could give his testimony and it was quite touching. He was basically raised in a bar with all types of unseemly people around him as a child. He had been a heavy drinker (that was all he knew) and court martialed 3 times when he was in the service and yet God reached down and touched his heart. He is now a Gideon and for those that know Gideons, you know that every chance you get you share the Gospel. He is very happy now and loves to give his testimony as to how God saved him.
Afterwards, we went back to the camper and changed from our shorts to church clothes and went to First Baptist Church for their later service. They were so friendly and nice. It was very good and we were so glad that we took the opportunity to worship with them, too. We followed that with a very nice buffet at a Chinese Restaurant. Now, we are full (of everything blessed) and laying around the camper taking it easy for a while. God is so good and I am glad that He loved me so much that regardless of how much I fail, He still loves me and has faith in me. My heart is tender thinking about His amazing grace! Have a blessed day today because we have already.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
