Photo101 – Day 13 – Moments and Motion – …heart highway.

“Blessed are those whose strength is in You,

In whose heart are the highways to Zion…

They go from strength to strength.” Psalm 84:5-7 (ESV)

Photo101 – Day 12 – Architecture & Monochrome – Write the vision…

“I will take my stand at my watchpost

And station myself on the tower,

And look out to see what He will say to me,

“Write the vision;

Make it pain on tablets…

For still the vision awaits its appointed time…

If it seems slow, wait for it;

It will surely come; it will not delay.”

Habakkuk 2:1 – 3 (ESV)

Photo101 – Pop and Color – Wind Chimes Play

“I put up the summer wind chimes

for the first time today.

Remembering soft breezes,

Their gentle music play.

The warmth of the sunshine,

Rising in the day.

Hours stretch before me;

My ear picks up the beat.

Gentle breezes blowing;

Faithful dog at my feet.”

Photo101 – Day 10 – Mystery

“How do You see mystery?I inquired of the Lord.

“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things…” Psalm 119:18 (ESV)

“”Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature…For the LORD sees not as man sees…” 1 Samuel 16:7 (ESV)

Photo 101 – Day 9 – Warmth and Light

I wonder…how many thoughts, ideas, tears, reflections, and plans have been made gazing beyond the warmth and light of this pane of glass.

“The heart of a man plans his way,

But the LORD establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)

Photo101 – Day 7 – BIG

From the city of BIG, the Washington Monument. A ladder to the heavens!

“From the top of the Washington Monument, each visitor is treated to an unequal view of the city of Washington. Visibility can be over 40 miles on a clear day from the tallest structure in the city.” Quote from “Washington, DC” by Impact Photography
“…there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached the heaven.” Genesis 28:12 (ESV)

Day 3  – Water

Living land locked in Oklahoma, photo taken on a quick trip back to the  New Jersey “Shore” as we east coast girls like to say! Special day with two special people in my life:) 

“Listen to Me in silence, O coast lands;

let the peoples renew their strength;

let them approach…” Isaiah 41:1 (ESV)




“Americans they come.

We’re drawn here

One by one.

To walk the past,

Revealed in paths

Its quietness resides.


On hallowed ground

We stand surround

By soldiers side by side.

The tunes of Taps

Forever last,

The bugle’s notes do cry.


There’s valor here

And honor too;

The tomb of the Unknown.

A mother’s son or daughter,

Our nation’s fallen one.


Each lie in rest,

They are the best.

Their fighting now is done.



On scared ground,

American flags do fly.

The carriage wheel,

The swords of steel,

Horses passing by.


To tunes of Taps

In sorrow past,

The Bugler’s note do cry.”
