Morning Dew

There’s a wreckage, there’s a fire
There’s a weakness in my love
There’s a hunger I can’t control

DSC00068

Lord, I falter and I fall down
Then I hold on to chains You broke
When You came and saved my soul.

DSC00074

Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free

DSC00066

Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

DSC00149

So, why Lord, do I still fail,
Do I wear thin?
Why do I still give in to temptation?

DSC00132

On my own, I am bankrupt,
I don’t trust You or take You at Your word
What You’ve promised.

DSC00075_
Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free

DSC00110

Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

DSC00105

 

Hallelujah,
Death is overcome and we are breathing
Hallelujah,
Our stone hearts become flesh that’s beating

DSC00155

Hallelujah,
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Hallelujah,
The fire has begun. Can you feel it?

DSC00076

 

Hallelujah,
Death is overcome and we are breathing
Hallelujah,
Our stone hearts become flesh that’s beating

DSC00110_

 

Hallelujah,
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Hallelujah,
The fire has begun. Oh, can you feel it?

DSC00097_

Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free

Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing!

Turn-Around-Macro

 

Ever been in a ‘rut’ with photography? It’s NOT fun!! But it is a tad nice cause it forces you to try new things, learn new things etc.

That’s where I’ve been lately, and sometimes I don’t like to go out and shoot. I just don’t feel the creativity right then. But I force myself to!

Looking through a filter for this pic. Framing the flower. Love how it turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚
Through the filter

 

 

These next two were pretty awesome to do! I call it turn-around-macro. It’s where you take the lens off, turn it around and take the pic. It’s really tricky, And since the lens ins’t attached, you can pull it away from the camera body just a tad and get some cool sun flare ๐Ÿ™‚ (Hence the pink hues)

Glistening In The Sun

 

 

I have this problem with not being able to set my camera down! lol. So on some mornings when the sunrise is a killer, and I really want to reach for my camera, I remind myself that some moments should just be enjoyed!

That’s what I tried to tell myself this morning, mostly because I didn’t really feel like taking pictures ( I know, lazy!) But Iย didย ย grab my camera…obviously ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

I only took two pictures of the actual sunrise, and the rest…well, I’ll let you see for yourself!DSC03784

 

Who spoke the Earth and sky to form

Who sets the sun and calls the dawn

 

DSC03776_

 

Who breathed me out of dust to life

The will to trust or run and hide

DSC03841_

 

Who loved me through my rebel way

Who chose to carry all my shame

 

DSC03805_

 

Who loved me through my rebel way

Who chose to carry all my shame

 

DSC03867_

 

God of wonder and God of grace

Let my soul stand always to praise You

DSC03794_

 

Fix my eyes on Your perfect way

And I’ll never look back

 

DSC03878_

 

Who lifts the poor and heals the blind

Who trampled death for all mankind

DSC03808_

 

Who stands for all with arms stretched wide

My King forever Jesus Christ

DSC03779_

 

I will stay should the world by me fold

Lift up Your name as the darkness falls

DSC03778_

 

I will wait and hold fast to Your word

Heart on Your heart and my eyes on You

Lyrics by Hillsong United : Stay and wait

Spring Blossoms!

You call me out upon the waters, the great unknown, where feet may fail

And there I find you in the mystery, in Oceans deep my faith will stand!

DSC03314_

And I will call upon your name, and keep my eyes above the waves,

When oceans rise My soul will rest in your embrace, for I am yours, and you are mine

DSC03423_

 

Your grace abounds in deepest waters, Your sovereign hand will be my guide,

Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me, You’ve never failed and you won’t start now.

DSC03423_1

 

So I will call upon your name, and keep my eyes above the waves,

When oceans rise My soul will rest in your embrace, for I am yours, and you are mine

DSC03419

 

 

You’ve never failed me Lord, and you won’t start now!!! โ™ฅ

Words by Hillsong United-Oceans

That Fluffy White Stuff…

 

Blinding white snow,
DSC08981

Sunshine flickering through the trees…

DSC09008_

 

deep blue sky,

DSC08985

 

shimmering ice on trees,

DSC08998_

 

It’s all gorgeous! Pure bliss to wake up and see the shimmering snow!

(although yes, it’s kind of hard to stay warm!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

It reminds me of the verse that says:

โ€œCome now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. ย Isaiah 1:18

Living in the midst of blinding white snow definitely gives you a different look on that! ๐Ÿ™‚

p.s. I need warmer weather!! ๐Ÿ˜›

Painting With Light

At the beginning of the year, I started a 365 project!! simply put, you take a picture eachย day, and upload it here. It sounds scary at first, I thought it did, but its a lot of fun, and it makes you pick your camera up and shoot! Also helps you get creative! That’s what I did today.

Light painting, and it’s super cool to do!

And…it’s really easy! ๐Ÿ™‚ย DSC08215_
