Morning started around 6 AM today. The sun will only sleep so long and I had to go rouse the morning out of it’s slumber. Not really but it makes me feel better about getting up so early.
The sunrise was beautiful, in the middle of the sun rise I noticed the moon was still overhead and took a hand held shot of it at 600mm with the Tamron 150-600 at 1/800th of a second. Handheld it was a bit of camera shake but at this resolution it doesn’t show.
Red Beard, Ruby and a friend was zipping across the sky like great fighter jets battling for the freedom of mankind. I think I was only able to catch Ruby at the feeder. He landed on the Oleander and posed but is was so dark I had to go to monochrome.
The Doves rushed to get the rice I put out for them, but then left after they realized I was snapping pictures. As soon as I was inside I went to the window that looks out over where I put the food and they were fighting over who gets to be king, while the peasants didn’t care and were scarfing it down hoping to finish before a king was announced.
Sat down with some coffee and spent another hour at bible study. Now I am off to fry some bacon, make a quiche and start a pot of vegetable beef soup.
A prayer for all those who are lost to find peace through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Psalm 32 (KJV)
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
Take a moment to enjoy the beauty God provides all around us. An Image I titled Bee in Bokeh. Taken on Nikon D7200 with Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary Lens at 500mm.
