6*2*2015 Beautiful Things
Two of my favorite things … Ashes my 20 year old kitty enjoying the warm weather and my Basil plant (that I’m trying not to kill, I have a black thumb!)
Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
“All that man needs for health and healing has been provided by God in nature, the challenge of science is to find it.” Philippus Theophrastrus Bombast that of Aureolus ~ Paracelsus (1493-1541)
I started walking (once a week) with a good friend. I am amazed at just how good I feel afterwards! And I feel accomplished too.
Not only that … it’s helping greatly with my thinking and my emotions and the grief. It’s healthy, invigorating and cathartic all at the same time. Love those endorphins.
So many things have changed since My Love went home to be with the Lord … I don’t even recognize myself sometimes and it’s only been 5 (very difficult) weeks … but this new walking thing is the most positive thing, aside from God and Church and Prayer, that I’ve encountered in those weeks.
I ponder things on these walks and talk them out with my friend … today started out with stressful tears and anger and after the walk I had the wisdom I had prayed for when I first woke up this morning. God had put me in a peaceful place, with a peaceful and wise friend so I could receive the next calm, sound minded step in this new life of mine.
I call this process #learningtolivewithouthim
It’s a hard and sorrowful process, but it’s accurate.
I had no plan B for this life of ours (mine); we never planned for either of us to have to endure this hollow sorrow of grief, of widowhood. But here I am … walking in something I never planned for … but God did.
Thank you for stopping by to see beauty through my eyes. <3 God bless.
I wanted to give myself something positive to focus on daily, so I’ve decided to challenge myself to a 30 day Photography Challenge. Summer is coming quickly and things are growing and blooming and changing daily.
Of course today is a day of Thunderstorms so getting outside to take pictures of my favorite things, flowers, plants, etc. etc., is not an option. I love these models, they stay where you put them! ;) So I decided to choose another set of my favorite items … my wedding rings.
After losing My Love just a month ago I’ve been focusing on our relationship. It was honestly based on the meaning of the Claddagh …
Our relationship is eternal, we decided that on our wedding day, June 8, 2002 … through the strong foundation you see in the meaning of the Claddagh Ring was forged for 13 years prior to our marriage. Don and I enjoyed 26 years together, beginning as friends, building a solid foundation of trust and honesty that lead to love and a fortress of loyalty for us and our children.
I don’t intend to ever remove these tokens of our love and our eternal bond. Don was the one God chose for me and I intend to honor that bond to eternity.
I can honestly say that in all of these 26 years My Love and I were not apart as long as we have been since he went home to the Lord. And while this is the hardest thing I’ve ever endured in my life I plan for it to build my faith in God’s plans and purposes and to forge my ability to endure until Don and I are reunited in God’s Glory.
Thanks for dropping by my poorly tended photography site … my truly neglected blogchild. I hope with this project to get back into the swing of my photography. If you’d like to join me I invite you to let me know and I’ll add a link up and we can do this together.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 620 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 10 trips to carry that many people.
Going to type out the Memory Verses that we have done so far … and then add the picture I made for each right afterward. This will be a progressive post here on A.Hutchinson Photography, adding in each new verse from the week on Sunday.
(I will use the corrections tools, like red for words I had to go find, cross outs and replacements in blue!)
Just another tactic in my box of memorization exercises. =)
(For verse 3 I inadvertently made two Scripture Pics. In the stress of that week, I forgot about the first one! =) )
Thanks for stopping by!
Psalm 27: 3
Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.
Hiding Psalm 27 in my heart.
Memorizing verse 3.
Now in order by photo:
What methods are you using to memorize your scripture verse?
Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Blessings to all.
Today I honor this man. The Love of my life. The man God built for me. The most honest, loving, intelligent man with impeccable character and integrity. I am truly the most blessed and grateful to God.
Father, Husband, Grandfather, Brother and Friend … Mighty Man of God.
Happy Birthday my Love. <3
Thank you for stopping by for a peek. Blessings.
