Quiet Time

Come aside by yourselves to an out-of-the way place and rest a little.
Mark 6, 31



My soul yearns and pines
for the courts of the Lord.
My heart and my flesh
cry out for the living God
Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest
in which she puts her young–
Your altars, O lord of Hosts,
my king and my God.

Psalm 84, 3-4

Fear Not


For I am the Lord, your God,
who grasp your right hand;
It is I who say to you, Fear not.
I will Help you.
Is. 41, 13

Shelter in Place



You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
Who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
Say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress,
My God in Whom I trust.
Psalm 91, 1-2

And I can’t resist re-posting the first one which I put up on my Author blog by mistake.

Our Internet connection deserted us for awhile. Here is our link to Becky’s #JanuaryLight prompt. The mountains in the background are part of the Sierra Nevada range, outside Bridgeport, California.

Brake-lights–Becky’s #JanuaryLight Challenge 13

Lots of lights in traffic. Some we like, others not so much. But being stopped by a red light allows for a bit of photography. Linked to Becky’s January Light Challenge.

Twilight–Becky’s #JanuaryLights 12

Catching up at last. I was so sorry to miss four days but am happy to join in again for Becky’s January Squares Challenge. An interesting aspect of this photo is that it is twilight, but facing East, away from the sunset.

Nightlight–Becky’s Square/Light Photo Challenge 9

Linking to Becky’s Square/Light Challenge #9. Today I’m trying to catch up for a few days on the road when I wasn’t able to access the Internet. This photo was taken at the end of November from our front yard. Note the crescent moon.
