A Photo and Praise

I am sharing another photo and a verse leading us to give praise to God.
Photo by Jake Hiebert
Although the word praise is not found in this verse,it never-the-less calls us to ascribe to the Lord the glory due Him.
In my mind that is giving Him praise.
When I see the new growth happening all around,even if it is slow in coming,I feel praise to God welling up inside of me.

  8. Beautiful light Ruth, and a reminder of how Jake could capture God's wondrous creation. He no longer needs a camera for he no longer sees dimly. Thanks for the wonderful text you chose.

  23. Beautiful shot! The hope of spring and rebirth! This verse is just amazing ....not "if you want to" or "if you feel like it" ...just do it! Thank you Ruth and wishing you special blessings for Easter.

  25. Hi Ruth -

    I love that shot. Great!

  26. Oh how I love to see the baby leaves opening and forming - I know what you mean - Spring to me brings out the same feelings of amazement and desire to praise. So thankful that we see God's faithfulness surrounding us in His creation - and then are reminded that we are His creation too and we will also find new life in Him and with Him someday.

    So thankful for such an amazing Lord and Savior and God!
