End of May Blogging Break

8-7-12 045

Mother of the Bride, since May always proves to be super busy, I’m going to close the month out with a little blogging break. Just a week-long breather before June starts bustin’ out all over. (If your daughter has a June wedding, good luck and hang in there—you’ll get your breather soon!)

So now with summer upon us, let me leave you with this sweet summer thought:

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time.” John Lubbock, English banker, politician, scientist, and philanthropist,1834-1913   

Here’s to watching some clouds this week, MOB—I’ll see you next Monday!

Summer Photo Fun: The Sky

8-7-12 045

Continuing with a nature theme this week in Summer Photo Fun, let’s look up and enjoy the sky. It’s vast, it’s beautiful, it’s another expression of our Creator God. I’d say it deserves its own post in Summer Photo Fun, huh?

Remember how in my post Adjusting Our Vision: Battling Dissatisfaction Godreminded me of what I have? Where I live I may not have the mountains outside my door or even a garden oasis or the beauty of the woodlands, but I do have the sky. And it is amazing.

So please enjoy these photos I’ve taken of the sky—and let’s praise its Creator together!

 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.” Psalm 19:1-3
