Thanks to @ed4thelord who shared a quote by Chuck Smith that is such a good reminder for all of us.. β€œInnumerable distractions in our congested cities make it difficult to keep our attention on God or remember to be thankful for the wonders of His handiwork. It seems that every new technology separates us from creation by one more layer, and nothing alienates us from creation more than the eerie virtual worlds we enter through our computers.” ~ Chuck Smith

Today marks the first day of Fall.. A righteous man may fall seven times, but gets back up. #proverbs24 #fall 🍁
It’s not the falling down that makes you a failure - it’s the staying down.. Get back up!
🌲
Those that are in the light don’t continue to stumble in darkness.

I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewelry,
Moon and stars mounted in their settings. Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way?

Sorrow may come in the darkest night, evil may put up its strongest fight -
But The Cross has the final word!

We were watching a documentary called "The Sign" the other night and realized I have the same people in my photos that they have on this show. Lo and behold I was taking photos of them filming at The Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel. Here's one of the photos-
I highly recommend watching this documentary- it will get your wheels spinning! It's about.. Scientific discoveries, rising geopolitical tensions, catastrophic world events, the end times etc.

By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path. Your words are gifts of light cascading down from heaven. There is no shifting of shadows, no deceitfulness, nothing two faced, nothing untrue in the Father of light.

You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light standβ€”shine!

You make water gush from springs into valleys. It flows between the mountains. Every wild animal drinks from them, and their thirst is quenched. The birds live by the streams. They sing among the branches.
You water the mountains from your home above.

For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces,
My love won’t walk away from you, my covenant commitment of peace won’t fall apart.”

"Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise:
Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer;
hyraxes are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags;
locusts have no king, yet they advance together in ranks;
a lizard can be caught with the hand, yet it is found in kings’ palaces.

Happy trails to you! 🐒
I think this is the same #tortoise I run into at the same spot each year, during monsoon season 😊
🌡
Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.
Happy trails to you,
Until we meet again.
Happy trails to you,
Keep smiling until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song, and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you,
Until we meet again.
Songwriters: Dale Evans & Roy Rogers

Good morning 🌞

God's thoughts towards you are more than the grains of sand. They're good thoughts.
Think about that.. scoop up some sand in your hand, then try and count them. He loves you, He really does!
