LOOKING UP





Stepped outside the back door one evening and got 
this shot.

Some of the greatest beauty in the world is in the sky.  
It changes almost by the minute.  Sun rises, sun 
sets, storms clouds, white fluffy clouds, you name it.  
Wait just a minute and it will change for you.

We spend too much of our time looking at just the 
things of earth.  We need to look up first to God in 
heaven above who created all this to start with, then 
enjoy the show He is putting on for us.

APPLE PIE?



One of the things I enjoy is seeing the various signs or 
plaques in peoples homes.  Most are humorous or perhaps
even a warning as to the person's attitude or interests.

I found this one in a woman's home in another state.
I did not want to be the apple in her pie so I left and
hurried back into the hills.

PUZZELED




Just an old photo out of my files.
But it puzzles me.

I well remember the man that this funeral was for.
The man had as we say, made his peace with God 
years ago.  Herman had a personal relationship with
Jesus Christ and it showed in his daily life.  He is one
of those who will be missed by the community.

But why the fire truck.
Even if he had been in danger of ending up in the
Devil's hell.  Don't they know that there is no way
a fire truck could put out the fires of hell?

A "CANJO" ?





I walked into church one day to what sounded like
a banjo playing.  But it did not look right.  So I ask
Tom what he was playing.  He showed me the "thing"
above.

Now Tom likes to make some of his own musical 
instruments.  This one was make out of a coffee
can and a yard stick.  He called it a "Canjo".  And,
better yet - IT WORKS GOOD.

STAND OUT JOY RIDES






Out sight seeing with my daughter one day when I 
spotted these at War Eagle Mills in North West 
Arkansas one day.

As a auto mechanic I used to notice if I drove out
of the shop in a brand new Lincoln, nobody noticed.
But if I drove out in a "hot rod" or possibly even
an old beat up truck more people noticed.

Why do we follow the crowds and their fads?
We just look like one more sheep following the
flock.

No, I am not suggesting being different to get
attention.  Pride can get us into more trouble
than we want.  But consider being what God
made you instead of following the crowd.

I know.
Personally I could use a wash and polish job.

TELLING THE STORY




"The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands."
(Psalms 19:1 NASB)   

Yes, you have seen clouds before.
Talk about works of art.  There is very little that can
match the beauty of the clouds.

For those of us who like to play with out cameras,
consider the clouds.  But consider them fast.  Because
two minutes from now there will be a completely different
beauty to shoot.  If you shot every beautiful cloud 
formation,you would have millions of photos.  So, be 
sure your computer has lots, and lots of memory.

GETTING PERSPECTIVE



I know.  This is not the best picture in the world.
But the thing that I learn each time I am in a place
like this is that really I am insignificant.  Believe it
or not, the whole world does not revolve around me.
It humbles me.

The truth of the matter is that every one of us is
significant to God.  He cares about each one of us
and wants a relationship with each individual.  But
we can only come to Him when we are willing to
humble ourselves before him and let him be God
and not us.
