Daily Prompt: Relate to This

Christians can all relate to the story of the coming of the Lord.  Enjoy the following excerpts from the Bible, Book of Luke for the next seven days leading us to Christmas and His Holy Birth.

Luke 1

  1. And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
  2. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
  3. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
  4. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
  5. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.
  6. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name Jesus.
  7. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
  8. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
  9. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
  10. And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
  11. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
  12. For with God nothing shall be impossible.
  13. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto to me according to thy word. And the Angel departed from her.

It’s almost Christmas and Jesus is the “Reason 4 the Season.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cheeky or Funky Christmas Decor

But sure not the traditional.  Not sure if this actually qualifies for cheeky, but wanted to show some shots of my current Christmas decor in my apartment.  Won’t break down to get a big tree til I move again, maybe next year.  I’ve been ill most of the time since before Halloween.  It’s been a rough year for all of us I think.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene Lake Superior in the Fall

Taken years ago about mid October but it reminded me of a winters day with the cold winds whipping off Lake Superior.  All the tourists gone.  So Serene.

Some of my family trying to keep warm that day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental Fun!

I love playing!  I only wish I had more money to waste on all the creative software out there.  I have not tried animation software but my Microsoft PhotoDraw has a very few animations on it at this time.  Once Microsoft stopped supporting it, the 3-D no longer operates with my newer Windows.

The following are various experimental graphics and animations with PhotoDraw.

Layered storm clouds, headstones and faded flowers called “Forgotten.”

One of my favorite stories from the Bible. It is quoted in a Charlie Brown’s Christmas describing the Birth of Christ. Bust of Angel surrounded by scripture with enhanced corners.
Luke 2:9-11

Used the same cropped flowers with softened edges on either side of another cropped lavender with bee photo over background with french text.

Had a picture of the cropped moon fade and scroll right across sunset for solar eclipse.

Animated “Forgotten.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary Summer

Shed no tear!  O shed no tear!

The flower will bloom another year.

Weep no more!  O weep no more!

Young buds sleep in the root's white core.

John Keats

Even more temporary than the flowers that bloom are the hues of Autumn.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Take a Peek at Psalm 23

Visual walk through the 23rd Psalm, one of my favorites.
