Photo Friday: Rest in a Peaceful Valley

Happy Photo Friday!

And for those of you in the U.S., I hope you enjoy a restful, peaceful Memorial Day weekend. Saturday, Dawn and I will attend a Memorial ceremony with our family, and visit my father’s grave at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, Georgia.

My dad’s only hope of heaven was in what Jesus accomplished for him. And he held to that hope to the end. Therefore, the Bible tells us he is R.I.P.—resting in peace with Jesus. Perhaps, at the end of the age, when all things are made new again, I’ll visit him in a restful, peaceful valley home like this.

Photo Friday: A Cottage in Norway

Hello everyone! Dawn and I are back home from our travels in Norway, Dawn’s faderland.

I took over 1000 photos, which means, after culling and editing, I’ll probably have ~30-40 worth sharing over the next few weeks.

Map of Lunden, NorwayThis shot of a small cottage will definitely be a favorite. Dawn and I found it while taking an early morning 6km walk in the village of Lunden near the tip of the Aurlandsfjord. Click for a full-sized view to see the colors better.

Wouldn’t you love to wake up to your morning coffee in this home just once in your life?


When God Isn’t Finished Making Art

Last Photo Friday I posted a picture I took of a pasture in bloom. The field of red ripening grass took my breath away. But, little did I know…

When God isn’t finished, to stop to remember again.

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations.—Psalm 22:27
