Good Tuesday morning everyone! It struck me this morning as I looked out the window…..I usually don’t see the sun until after it breaches the tree tops. Being December, the leaves are off the trees making them “see through”, and you can see the sun before it reaches the “top” of the trees.
I hope everyone has a blessed day!
I am always intrigued with old buildings. I often find myself pondering what life was like when they were in their prime. I was driving this morning down some back country roads and came across this building. Certainly a small mom & pop gas station that served ice cold Coca-Cola.
Its kinda surreal as all round it is modern homes, but this icon of another time, another place still stands. I wish I knew more.
The vultures (or sky rats as I like to call them) were flying overhead and close by. There must have been 30 or so circling in two different groups.
Out early this morning, and the moon was still hanging around. It was pretty cool with the sun rising in the east and the moon setting in the west. Not every day you get to see both so clearly.
What I love about these challenges is how people interpret the theme. Ironically, I was sitting down at my computer getting ready to weed through my photos to find “something” to post. Out of the corner of eye, I saw the shadows of the three crosses on the wall. That was when I knew I had my post.
1. It’s good to stop and reflect on the significance of the cross, and the impact Christ has had in my life. It keeps me focused on that which is most important to me.
2. Hanging from the middle cross is my fathers dog tags from when he served in the military. When I see them, its a reminder to stop and reflect not only at how proud I am of my father for his time in service, but also for all the men and women who serve and sacrificed for the freedoms that I have today.
The moon decided to give me a fit this evening. I took about a dozen pictures, and only this one was worth posting. I wanted to get a picture closer to the horizon, however, I was a little late getting home so had to settle for a sky only shot.
Beautiful bright full moon tonight. The tiny spec of light in the upper left of the picture is Jupiter.
