February Sunshine

We just had a few inches of snow, but a few days ago when I touch these pictures the sun was shining bright.

Here the path is quite dry and walkable, but going through the trees in the shade it is icy and slippery.

A lot of people were out enjoying the good weather and the sunshine.

I took this outside my west window.

The Meditation of Abiding

Prayer A to Z

 

Abiding I believe is the key to receiving regular and many answers to prayer. For Jesus says to us in John 15:7, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done for you.”  Abiding in Christ and in His words means to continue in them, that is, to continue believing them and living by them.  Abiding also means to dwell with and to be connected to as a branch is to a vine.  I conclude, therefore, that abiding in Jesus means that we are continually dwelling with Him and perpetually letting His life flow into us just as living sap flows from a vine to its branches; hence, it means that we are always sipping and tasting and drinking in His goodness, ever being satisfied with what we need and long for.

Winter Light — 12 Photos

Leaving the ducks, I headed up this familiar trail. It was supposed to be warm, but there was a cold wind from the northwest. Winter was coming.

Before long my pleasant walk was almost over. The days are short and sunlight will soon be gone.

WWII Abandon Army Building Becomes Art Studio

This old abandon WWII Army ammunition’s building has become somewhat of an art studio for young gang members, or maybe just a place for bored kids to practice their art craft.

This looks like it was quite a place in it’s day. This is one of several military buildings that were quickly built during WWII to manufacture ammunition’s needed. Since sometime in the 1960’s it has been abandon.

I wonder why they haven’t torn down this building yet. I walk by here often.
