GOD of WONDERS

I am not quite sure how to begin this post,but here goes.
A while ago,I received an email asking if I would be interested in submitting some photos for an upcoming calendar.Of course I was interested and promptly picked a couple which I thought might be suitable. I sent them off,thinking this was probably the last I would hear of this.
It wasn't too much later when another email came requesting more images,which I chose and sent.
Long story short,Back To The Bible,Canada has used five of my images in their 2013 calendar.


Here are the images used and a little about them.
This picture is the first one of the year,January.
I probably took it in January as well,a year or two ago.

September shows this image.I captured this one this past fall.I love that blue sky,which shows off the yellow of the foliage.


October shows our lake,Lake Minniwasta.On this sunny day the fall foliage was at its best.

A beautiful sunset is on the November page.
I thought that there were just enough clouds in the sky that day to make it very pretty.

This is the oldest picture in this bunch. It is on the December page.
I took this one several years ago,southwest of Morden.That old wagon sat there,just begging to be photographed.

I am humbled to think that my pictures were chosen for this project.
I love Back To The Bible and what they stand for so that makes it extra special to be a part of this.
The title of the calendar is as my blog title says,God of Wonders.
We truly do serve a God of wonders.

Doing a little happy dance here!! This is so cool - to have your photos on the calendar! Love Back to the Bible! My fav are the lake and the sunset. The one with the wagon makes me shiver and want to put a sweater on! The blue sky and yellow trees are a super combo of colors. The first one with the barn looks like a lovely place to take a walk and not as cold to me as the last one! Congratulations on having photos published!

Thanks for your kind comment, Ruth. I think my grandson Drew did like having me at his preschool Thanksgiving feast. I'll be incommunicado for the next 2+ weeks as Jerry and I will be in Israel, but I'll come home with lots of photos!

I must say once again that your calendar photos are stunning!
