Summer And Smoke

I may not have gotten any pictures of fireworks, but I got plenty of smoke bomb ones. Smoke bombs are kind of like daytime fireworks. The little kids love them, because they aren't scary, just pretty. Of course the wind gradually sweeps the smoke away till it's just a mist. Here's something else that is swept away like mist.


"I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you."
Isaiah 44:22

Your pics are wonderful; you captured the colors beautifully. The Scripture is wonderful, too! I love the word "Redeemed!"

Colorful mist.. over at my place, we do not have these type of "colorful smoke." Is it warm over at your place now? over here, it is hazy..

Isaiah 44:22

what a wonderful verse.

The smoke bombs are so beautiful. How do they make the colors?

Stacey Dawn said...

Such pretty photos and a clever way to weave in today's scripture. Enjoy your day.

Oh wow, those are really pretty colors. I had forgotten all about the smoke bombs, we used to do them on the 4th when my stepdaughter would spend the summer with us. Gotta love that pink.

Melanie said...

Oh that is pretty, Ginny. The colors make me think of cotton candy.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

They are pretty!

these are so pretty, i did not even know there are smoke bombs, i have only seen them in our action movies where they throw them in to get the bad guys to come out. wonder why they don't use colored ones. ha ha i like these better than fireworks because i like the silence of it all. now if only our neighbors would make their illegal booms into pretty smoke.

Excellent photos of the smoke!

Beautiful smoke.Thank the Lord for sweeping away my sins.

We have our own smoke bombs drifting down from the fires from Okefenokee that have been burning for a long time - I can't even walk around the lake today with the Gizz because inhaling that stuff makes me cough my lungs out and gives me a headache.

I hope your air is much better where you live!

Remington said...

You certainly have some colorful clouds there, my friend!

Mary said...

I've never seen these, Ginny. The colors are wonderful. I'll have to search them out for our grandsons visits. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Reminds me of "I Dream of Jeannie".

Hi Ginny, I have never seen these before except on TV for military stories. The only fireworks legal in California where I used to live, were very very tame ones and even those were to be set off in rural localities. Have a super nice day!

Perfect scripture. Thanks for the verse today.
Great smoke shots too.

Every time I think that Jesus has done this for me I just want to fall on my knees in gratefulness.

S. Etole said...

These are so pretty ... and look they are much safer.

Chatty Crone said...

I am so glad God has forgiven me!

And the smoke bombs - they were so very pretty - I don't think I have ever seen any of those.

Lynn said...

Ginny, back in the day smoke bombs were just "smoke colored", at least the neighbor's were, lol. Like everything else, I think technology has given color to smoke bombs. Your header struck me as such a beautiful expression of color...had no idea that was smoke from a "smoke bomb". Very interesting post. Thank you for keeping Terry in your prayers for next Monday. God bless.

Ann said...

that's the prettiest smoke I've ever seen. I had no idea that smoke bombs came in all those colors.

Shug said...

When I first saw your header picture, I was thinking Wow, that is a lot of smoke...
Great pictures. I know the kids (and the adults) had a lot of fun...
Hugs Ginny....

I never saw smoke bombs like these! I thought your header photos was cotton candy at first :)

Regina said...

I think they look pretty!! You know I also noticed from some left over fireworks some family members had (what you mentioned about where they actually came out off of- like the chickens) that is gross!! Anyway, I haven't taken any for long time (sniff)..maybe by next year I'll have a sharp camera!

I've never seen those kinds of fireworks. They do look beautiful.
