Scavenger Hunt~ 09/11

This weeks items:  Bokeh, Process of Elimination, Remember, Statues, Flying High





Process of Elimination


Exploring with a camera


I remember after 9-11 how everyone hung flags from their houses and how everyone was so very proud to say that they were American.  I remember how our nation pulled together and how talk of God became more prominent. The statement “One Nation Under God” didn’t seem to bother anyone at that point in time.

We are still that same nation.  A nation under God and I pray that this beautiful nation of ours will always remember that.  Because God is the LOVE that binds the wounds caused by damaging sin.

As we think today about the horrible tragedy that occurred 10 years ago I will be we sharing with my children the importance of this country of ours.  How we pulled together in the face of tragedy.  How love became more important than hate. And how love will always win over hatred! And then I will remind them of the Beauty. And the Freedom.  And the Patriotism that makes up this grand ole’ country called the U.S.A.

Out in the rural area where I live statues are obsolete and since I didn’t have time to head into a city that sports real statues this week, I opted for this “country” statue.

Flying High

It has rained continually all week. I waited until the last minute to try to capture something flying high, but everything around here seems to be grounded.  So, I had to grab a photo that I took from last week.  A flyer….who at the moment wasn’t flying and I was super happy that he sat and posed for me!
