A Thousand Words

Just taking a moment to let some pictures be worth a thousand words!

on the farm

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:…a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted…

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, KJV)

planting parsley seedlings…

parsley, broad-leaf sorrel, wild bergamot…

watering the farm…(photos by Spencer)

in the forest

Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the Lord, because he cometh to judge the earth.

(1 Chronicles 16:33, KJV)

the forest begins to bloom…and Spencer and Vivi begin to feed the squirrels and chipmunks…

the garter snakes enjoy their annual rendezvous in the clearing…

at the shore

The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

(Psalm 95:5, KJV)

splashing and tidepooling at Sandy River Beach

walking out to the island at Roque Bluffs State Park…

have you ever looked closely at a sand flea?…

in the tide pools

Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures…”

(Genesis 1:20, NKJV)

a new island to explore at Roque Bluffs State Park…

humble tidepool citizens, full of God’s beauty and love…

signs of spring

Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone.

(Zechariah 10:1, NIV)

plum blossoms, common blue violets, honeybees on dandelions…

maples bud and form samaras…

downy serviceberries, earliest to bloom, earliest to fruit…

grasshoppers, baltimore checkerspot caterpillar

wild blueberry blossoms…

consider the birds

Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches.

(Psalm 104:12, ESV)

red-eyed vireo…

american redstart…

ruby-throated hummingbird, cedar waxwing…

Everywhere we look no matter what we are doing, God’s creation stands ready to remind us of Him, in every work of our hands, in every breeze over every water, in every living thing…Every picture of every moment of our everyday lives is worth a thousand words of praise!

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

(Romans 1:20, KJV)
