Week 33 brings a verse from Isaiah 33.
Have a blessed week ahead.
Last week I was so happy that I had created my Scripture and a Snapshot early, so that I could finally get it posted on Instagram and this blog on time. Carrying that thought forward to this week, I did the same for next Sunday’s image and verse too. Only, I find that I forgot to do the blog post for week 31. So today I’m getting both last Sunday’s and next Sunday’s posted together. Here. And Now.
Sunday blessings to you all…even if it’s only Thursday.
This image is from a photo taken in Grants Pass, Oregon. We were there for about a week earlier this month. The shade this tree provided was so welcoming on such a very hot summer day. It Afforded us some much-needed shelter from the sun.
Scripture and a Snapshot, Week 30.
It seems like I’m having a sunrise-sort-of-summer. I’m not known for being an early riser, but when we’re traveling, I do get up much earlier. Plus, I’m now making it a point to get outside to see what the world looks like as the day starts to wake up.
As I read the Psalms, I notice that David appears to be an early riser. The first thing he did was to turn his needs over to the Lord. The next thing David did was to wait on the Lord - expectantly. That quite a lesson is this little verse. I think waiting expectantly, makes waiting so much easier.
My time management hasn’t gotten any better since my last post. At that time I was playing catch-up on three Scriptures and Snapshots. Today I’m playing catch-up on five.
We’ve been doing a lot of traveling. We spent the last half of June in Arizona and Southern California. Our Oklahoma daughter asked what we were doing the week of June 18th. “Nothing,” was our answer. I admit we were expecting her to ask if we wanted some company. How great it would be to see her and our grandson again. However, what she tells us is that she has reservations to go camping at the Grand Canyon and it would be great if we met her there. Then she asks if we would to join them on a river rafting excursion one of the days and hiking down part of the South Rim on another. Hmmm… we think about this for a minute, and then tell her sure – we’ll be there.
Here’s the thing:
1. They tent camp (and all that implies). We camp in an RV (with all the comforts of home)
2. They shoot the rapids. We shoot landscapes.
3. They’re into hiking down the canyon. We’re into strolling along the upper rim of the canyon.
We agreed that we would each do our own things during the day and then meet up in the evenings and have dinner together. We all had a great time too.
After leaving the Grand Canyon, we spent a couple of days in the Prescott Valley, before heading to So Cal to visit my parents.
Here are my Scripture and a Snapshot for the five late weeks:
Ahhh! It feels so good to be caught up again.
Last month things started getting real busy. Looks to me like this will continue for the rest of summer. I need to be a little more aware of my time management. Anyway, here I am playing catch-up for three weeks of Scripture and a Snapshot.
