" God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed".

Luis Bunuel

Just had to share this magnificent sunset that I witnessed on Pacific Beach in Washington state. We go there every year, but this year the sunset seemed particularly beautiful and made me think of one of my favorite poems.

 

"The world is charged with the grandeur of God. It will flame out, like shining from shook foil ...

And though the last lights off the black West went

Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward springs --

Because the Holy Ghost over the bent World broods with warm breast and with,

ah! bright wings."

~ Gerard Manley Hopkins

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

   

Had a wonderful sunset and into the night along this gravel road in the Valley of the Gods, located in southeast Utah. It was so quiet and peaceful there into the night, a break from the hot windy day that had proceeded this time.

 

This view caught my eye as I was heading along the road in the dark caught my eye as the moon vanished behind the large rock formations.

 

This all followed a wonderful steak and beer at the Swingin Steak House located in quiet Mexican Hat, Utah. A must stop and eat if you like meat :)

 

Our trip continues now farther into the west and little farther south ... into Arizona.

  

Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mother's in the world...0))

happy to be one,,,:o)

...and in case you are wondering about the title here is the explanation: my hat flew away in a wind blast just after breakfast that day! ツ ... The lucky hat stayed behind in Santorine to forever enjoy a holiday fit for the gods!...ah,but I did manage to bring back my mojo with me this time!...

I asked God to take away my pride,

And God said "NO"

He said it was not for him to take

away

But for me to give up

 

I asked God to make my

handicapped child whole,

And God said "NO"

He said her spirit is whole

Her body is only temporary.

 

I asked God to grant me patience,

And God said "NO".

He said that patience is a byproduct

of tribulation,

It isn't granted, it is earned.

 

I asked God to give me happiness,

And God said "No"

He said He gives blessings,

Happiness is up to me.

 

I asked God to spare me pain,

And God said "NO"

He said, "Suffering draws you apart

from worldly

cares and brings you closer to me.

 

I asked God to make my spirit

grow

And God said "No"

He said I must grow on my own,

But he will prune me to make me

fruitful.

 

I asked God to help me love others

As much as He loves me,

And God said, "Ah, finally you

have the idea."

Have a BLESSED and FRUITFUL day my dear friends!!!

            

More from Greece, this time Theogefyro (θεογέφυρο, meaning "God's bridge") near Lithino, Zitsa, Epirus (Λίθινο, Ζίτσα, Ήπειρος). A small chapel sits atop the natural stone arch and can just be made out in this shot. You could easily miss the arch unless you were looking for it as it's quite invisible from the road (which goes over a metal bridge above the stone arch).

 

5DII, 17-40mm, B+W polariser. Manual blend of 3 exposures, though I chose to leave the sky through the arch close to blowing out otherwise it looked too unnatural.

Der Lübecker Dom ist der erste große Backsteinkirchbau an der Ostsee und mit 130 Metern Länge eine der längsten Backsteinkirchen. 1247 ist der Dom geweiht worden. Der Dom war und ist die nach der Marienkirche am reichsten ausgestattete Kirche Lübecks. Hinsichtlich der steinernen Sarkophage in seinen Grabkapellen nimmt der Dom in Lübeck eine herausragende Stellung ein.

After a failed sunrise attempt at the Main Overlook at Grandview in West Virginia's New River Gorge myself and good friend Jeff Burcher left the overlook and made our way over to Turkey Spur with the hopes that maybe the fog had lifted but it had not. I was still in severe need of gas so we began the ride through the park as we passed the park maintenance area I noticed the light was breaking through the fog among the trees so I pulled over and Jeff soon followed. We got out of our cars and I told Jeff, "I'm not sure what I'm looking for but I have a feeling this is going to turn out pretty cool." And boy did it, after setting up the fog lifted and even more gorgeous rays of light shown through the mist, it was truly beautiful!

He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

  

1 Peter 1:20 (New International Version) May your Sunday be filled with blessings and love from the Master Creator!

 

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the colour green in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... People think pleasing God is all God cares about. But any fool living in this sad world can see it always trying to please us back.

 

Creo que Dios se mea fuera si usted camina por el color verde en un campo en algún lugar y no se nota .... La gente piensa agradar a Dios es todo lo que Dios le importa. Pero cualquier tonto que vive en este triste mundo puede verlo siempre tratando de complacer a la espalda.

 

Je pense que ce pisse Dieu hors tension si vous marchez par la couleur verte dans un champ quelque part et ne le remarquez pas .... Les gens pensent plaire à Dieu est tout ce que Dieu se soucie. Mais ne importe quel imbécile vivant dans ce triste monde peut le voir en essayant toujours de nous plaire dos.

Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God. ~Krishnamacharya

God is a concept by which we can measure our pain... I just believe in me (John Lennon).

 

Music

John Lennon - God

As dark as night when chaos come,

but as bright as day when they are gone.

Tears of blood flows when in pain but

tears of joy gush when victory is gained.

God never fails, He is our forever Hope ...

Amen!

I took this photo while riding in a moving tour bus in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Also the photo was shot thru the glass window of the bus. When I uploaded this image, I was so humbled when I saw what my camera had caught! God's Heart Shining down on us all!

Trees by Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918 / New Jersey)

 

I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree.

 

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

 

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

 

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

 

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

 

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

straight out of my P&S- it was still raining a bit. This is our neighbors soy bean field which is almost ready to be harvested-- love the golden glow. I excused myself for a few minutes and left my guests with my husband so I could go out and capture this!! LOL

Have a great day everyone and thanks for the visits,

It's been raining so much here for the last 2-3 days... so many hurricanes lately and that earthquake here in Virginia, God must not be happy :)

God’s Tears

 

When I was a little girl, rain was God crying. Why would God cry? His world is perfect.

When I would cry, my parents would yell, “Stop crying, or I’ll give you something to cry about.”

To this day I love musing over irony.

 

This morning God is crying, and I’ve decided to cry with Him. This world can be so beautiful, but I can’t see it Perfectly. I can’t look at pain and say, “All is as it should be.” I’ve cried more than a few rivers, and it’s a good thing God can’t cry. His tears would be a great and mighty flood, drowning us all and life would slowly start again, from the beginning. And what have we learned, in our brief time on this planet, that we wouldn’t break His heart again?

I love it when the sky does this.

This is near the Old Rhyne Mill in Lincoln County, NC right after the sun broke through the morning fog. Right before I got into my truck to go home, this is what I saw, so you know I had to take out my camera and snap a few shots!
