Happy June, y’all! This month is traditionally very busy for me – from taking the grands to Vacation Bible School, weekend trips and all the other miscellaneous things that go on! So I thought, I’d fill the blog with pictures!
John and I decided to invest in a new camera, and all of you get to see first fruits of the test shots. We went out to Rip Van Winkle Gardens to get a few bird pictures from Rip’s Rookery. If you’re ever down this way, you really should plan a trip to the Gardens. They are beautiful!
This is a Roseate Spoonbill that John caught soaring through the air.
but those who trust in the LORD
will renew their strength;
they will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 HCSB
I believe this bird is a Great Blue Heron. He seems to have his feathers ruffled a bit, doesn’t he?
A fool gives full vent to his anger,
but a wise man holds it in check. Proverb 29:11 HCSB
I’m not sure what this guy is. He resembles a snowy egret, but doesn’t have the yellow feet. We call him “The Donald” because he has a “swoop” of yellow atop his head, similar to our president! Which reminds me of this:
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
This is good and pleases God our Savior. 1 Timothy 2:1-3 NLT
I hope you have enjoyed these pictures! We certainly enjoyed the adventure of Rip’s Rookery, and all the birds there!
Grace be with you,
