Going, Going, Gone

































"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going." John 14:2,4

Ginny when my mom was in hospice - I kept reading and reading and reading Psalm 23 - and she went so peacefully and I know she is up there waiting for me.
A good way to end the night like Ruth said.
Love, sandie

Ginny you are a magician with the camera in your hands, the pics are superb!!
And the verse is so so calming and soothing...
Yes there is a place for everyone up there with the Lord Almighty.
Have a peace filled week ahead:)

This are beautiful photos.

It is Mothers' day , may be they may sell it as a Mothers' day gift.

Small footprint is an environmental blog which I link to when I do the "Save the world" post. It has nothing to do with my book, but she had a lot of followers. She links back my posts, we are like good friends.

At the rising of the sun and the going down of the same, the Name of the Lord is to be praised! What gorgeous photos!!

SquirrelQueen said...

What an amazing series of photos Ginny, I almost felt like I was standing beside you as it sank in the sky.

I love the simplicity of your last photo, it is my favorite.

So pretty. As I was leaving Baltimore yesterday morning early and as the plane backed up and started to taxi, I looked out the other window and the east sun coming up was red. And I couldn't get to my camera and I was on the wrong side. :(

Looking at these pictures continue to remind how awesome our God is...
yes, Jesus said He will prepare rooms for us.. sometimes my cell group like to joke about this.. who is getting a bigger room or a small cubicle.. or someone getting a big bungalow bec he does God's work all the time... just kidding!

I agree with Judy that the last is my favorite, they are all stunning and need no words at all, but the scripture is one of my favorites and says it all. i like the way the sun seems to shine through the earth in some of them, like it is so bright it shines through the edge of the earth. i am thinking you were with Phil while he was flying, right? super shots for sure

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I feel like I was right there!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Hi Ginny, That Scripture verse was one of the ones I taught my first graders every year at the Christian school I taught at. I love your pictures of the sunset! Have a super nice day!
