The  Lord God made everything upon the face of the earth with such thoughtfulness, love and care within a matter of days. Can you believe how such creatures are made knowing that many are out there so different and yet the same to some extent?
I don’t know what type of moth this is but it decided to come rest on my front porch as I take in the Word and spend time with the Lord.

It’s a wonder… isn’t it? So pretty in color and quite interesting to look at up close.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it  was good. Genesis 1:24‭-‬25 NKJV

Now when it comes to us.. we were created in His image. Wow. There’s something to that. Just think about it.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:26‭-‬27 NKJV

The Father had a plan and a purpose with you in mind. To think of all the creatures and beast of earth that reside on land and in the water that He made with such precision, I would like for you to think just how much more work was put in creating us.
He’s a good good Father, Creator and Master Designer. Yes He is!

They (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) love us, they love us, THEY LOVE US! We were known before we were created. When you and I were thought of to be made in Their image there were no leftover ideas scrapped in the corner somewhere up in heaven to design us. No way!

How you look and how I look are made perfect in Him. Take delight in that. There’s no need for correcting His perfection. You are a work of art placed on this earth that is priceless. So when you look in the mirror today, tell the Lord Thank You for making me to look like You. It doesn’t matter what the world says based on the lies of the enemy. If the animal kingdom could talk, I wonder if they would bother concerning themselves with comparison to one another.

My thoughts for you today is to take in the wonders of God all around you and count it joy that you are one of them! Be blessed and encouraged this day dear hearts.

Double Rainbow: God never ceases to amaze me!!!

ALL I CAN SAY IS : WOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!

Well I am sure I have a bit more to say but I am overjoyed, smiling and full of happiness right about now. We had another storm come through this evening. I had taken a shower and went downstairs to the kitchen when my kids said that the sky looked yellow from the front and back door. Of course I am usually ready to snap any interesting pictures so I stepped outside and BAM……..a BEAUTIFUL DOUBLE RAINBOW stretched across the sky! I caught it initially from my backyard and then I headed to the front. It’s getting dark and I surely couldn’t care less who seen me in my black/white/teal animal print pj’s! Hey it looked like I was wearing a tank top and capris so who cares! I seen one of the greatest wonders God ever created! The Bible itself mentions such wonders.

“And God said: This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth. And God said to Noah, This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all the flesh that is on the earth.” (Genesis 9:12-17 NKJV)

My daughter Faith was capturing a picture on the iPhone as I was capturing it with my camera! An amazing moment God blessed us all with! His love is everlasting!!

The quality of the pictures and proper settings on the camera were not always correct but I didn’t care……… it was a memory maker for me. The rain was beginning to sprinkle again and I had to wipe my lens off at times. I am still fairly new to doing photography at it’s best but it I can say that there was a greater and deeper meaning for me in this moment of seeing the storm, adoring the beautiful rainbow all the way to seeing the sun set. It is something that the Lord knew that I needed. Every good and perfect blessing comes from heaven. He blessed me once again. My heart leaps, dances and rejoices in His goodness. Faithful is He from the beginning to the end. Praises be unto He Who not only resides in heaven but in my heart.
