This blog is mostly about images. A photo captures a moment in time and lets us slow down long enough to see the rich texture of the life all around us. It's mostly for my own amusement, but if you stumbled here somehow, please enjoy.

How Great

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze

Then sings my soul my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art...

How great, indeed.

Seeing is believing?

If you think so, you clearly aren't familiar with Photoshop! But this post isn't about altered images. It's about our senses, our view of things, our perspective.  What references would you use to decide which direction is "up" in this image?  The trees?  They always grow straight up, don't they?  The ground?  It's usually level; at least in the Midwest.  The clouds?  Pilots know they come in all kinds of sloping patterns and that using them as an "artificial horizon" can be deadly.

Or maybe you know me and know that I try to hold the camera very level, that I'm not one of those photographers who loves a quirky camera angle.  The more you trust or agree with me, the more you might be inclined to believe that what I say is "up", really is "up".

Paul was very clear to say, "Follow me as I follow Christ" (I Cor. 11:1).  Be sure your reference point is on solid ground, always true. And then check it often.  Like pilot (or even hiker) vertigo, you'll be surprised how soon your senses will fail.

Greg & Diana 6.3.12

"Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord." (Prov. 18:22). 

We're just marveling at the goodness of God to give our son a wonderful new bride who loves him and has faith to believe that God has drawn them together.  All glory to God!
