Just Because

I take many photos over the course of a year, many which most people will never see, but that's okay.
Photography is something I do for enjoyment it's not just about what I can share with others.
Most pictures I take simply because I like the scene, for one reason or the other.

For that reason I have titled this post 'Just Because'.
I will share some verses/quotes that I like and hope one or the other speaks to you as well.

Friends help each other through the big things, but cherish together the little things.

The closer you live to God the smaller everything else appears.

You may not understand today or tomorrow, but eventually God will reveal why you went through everything you did.
These are Sandhill Cranes.

Just because God is quiet doesn't mean He has forgotten you.

Have you prayed about it as much as you've talked about it?

Closing thought is on the lighter side:
Our church/family is like fudge….sweet with a few nuts.


  1. Ruth, I enjoyed your 'just because' pictures! I especially like that last one!

  2. I'm delighted you took -- and then have shared -- these gorgeous 'Just Because' photos. I also love your closing thought.

  3. Wonderful quotes, I copied the second one! Favorite pictures today are the yellow leaves, and the railroad tracks; it looks like it is lined with crosses.

  4. Being partial to macro #5 photo was my favorite. And thoughts to meditate on.

  5. "Our church/family is like fudge….sweet with a few nuts."



    Love the sunset photo.

  6. Glad you shared these just because you could! loved the sight of the sandhill cranes overhead.

  7. Enjoyed the 'Just Because' pictures. What a coincidence - my church has a few nuts as well. :)

  8. That's a great shot of the Sandhill Cranes. We hear them sometimes as they fly over our house. They're noisier than Canada geese. That quote, "Have you prayed about it as much as you've talked about it?", is too true for most of us. Fun post.

  9. when I saw the telephone wires and rail road I thought The old Rugged Crosses along the tracks, they look like crosses to me.. first and last Just Because photos are Awesome..

  10. nice, thank you for sharing.

  11. Fantastic photos and some really great thoughts.

  12. Ruth, wonderful images, just because!!

  13. Nice post, Ruth. Love the first picture especially. Hope you're well. Diane

  14. I always wonder if God will reveal to us the answers we seek now, or if they will be unimportant then.

    Beautiful photos, BTW.

  15. Your photos are always wonderful, Ruth, and I love the words to go with them. I smiled at your closing thought...true! :)

  16. Well, I can see by clicking on your most 'recent' link in Google Plus doesn't necessarily mean it IS the most recent. I found this post after deleting half of you url from Google Plus.

    It's all so beautiful.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Ruth!!!

  17. i know he is there, but i must say ... i wonder if the statement of he only gives you what you can handle is true? i wish to give up lately. it is too too much. i know it might sound odd to say ... but the only relief is knowing my next issue/problem will always seem more worse. i remember as a kid thinking what i was going through would kill me for sure & i would look back and think that was just a stepping stone. i take some peace in that. it is hard to get through it though.. but i know i can, we can do it. have a great week Ruth.

  18. "Just Because" is a very beautiful post. I always delight in seeing your photos and reading your words.
