One Beautiful Morning

September 20, 2011

Over the weekend, it rained almost constantly. The rain was much needed, and made everything cozy inside our home.  But on Sunday morning, there was a break in the rain, the sun came out, and everything glistened with raindrops. My brothers and I went out to enjoy the glorious morning before leaving for church. I enjoyed taking some pictures. It’s so fun to have a camera: everything was begging to be photographed! Here’s several (OK-most) of the pictures I took:

Some pretty plants down by the edge of our pond.

Sylvia perched on a tree stump.

Notice Mr. Grasshopper hiding in this yellow plant.

Truman was in a compatible mood that morning, and followed me around the yard. :)

This is so funny- I took it just as he was opening his mouth to mew.

While I was scurrying around photographing everything in sight, my hard-working brothers were constructing dams and tepees.

Austin building a dam.

Here’s the outside of Jonathan’s tepee…

…and the inside. I was very impressed!

That same morning, Austin and Jonathan captured a giant frog.

It was about the size of my hand (or half of a shoe!)…that’s the biggest frog I’ve ever seen! In case you’re wondering, my brothers kindly released Mr. Frog back into our pond after showing it to us.

Morning is my favorite time of the day. It’s wonderful to get out and enjoy its beauty, and give glory to the One who created it.

Isaiah 40:28
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

    Brooke, your photography skills are improving with every new post! And I love how you had so many photos posted – I really enjoy long posts with lots of photos.

    When you told me that the boys were building a teepee, I had no idea that it was that serious of a fort. Boys are amazing with that sort of thing, I know from experience!

    Thanks for blogging so faithfully – I am always excited when I see that you have a new post.

    Have a blessed day. To God be the Glory, Love,
    Hannah

    Dear Brooke, Thank you for sharing your lovely photos! I especially like the teepee – it looks just like something our boys would build. The “profile” of Truman is a great one too! Enjoy your camera and keep on honoring the Lord in what you do with your talents! We love you!
