Blessing #6

Don't you think that flowers are an absolutely beautiful example of God's handiwork? I do! Snapping these pictures made me notice details that I hadn't seen before and it just made the flowers even more amazing!

It started out as this little green bud...
Then blossomed into this lovely flower!
I think this is a hydrangea. I'm not an expert at
flower names!
Is this considered a pink black eyed susan, a cone flower
or echinacea?
The Pink Pom Pom!
This looks kinda fluffy!
Do you think dandelions are flowers or weeds?
I took the following pictures at the park.
Most of the flowers were already dead, but thankfully
there were still a few left!
I know these aren't flowers, but they were fun to take
 pictures of!
Do you like this picture better or the one just above it?

Blessing #4

Today will be about our family's dog, Maple! She's a beautiful yellow lab, perfect for our family. She is really gentle with Double Trouble, even when he pulls her tail or her ears! 


Here are some pictures of her jumping over a "pole"

She didn't understand what she was supposed to do at first..

But she soon got it!



Good girl!

She loves catching bits of food,
that's why she's waiting under Double Trouble's chair :)

Doesn't she look smart?

I made her wait for the treat so that I could take this........

But she got to eat it later!

Blessing #3

Computers! They save a LOT of time and are really handy!


My Little Brother!

Here are some pictures of my cute little brother aka Double Trouble. 


He loves playing with water....

and of course, getting wet!

I think he was trying to show me a leaf.

Isn't he cute?




It's amazing he's actually sitting still!

Blessing #2

This is a picture of a small fuzzy black and yellow insect that is part of God's wonderful creation. It gathers pollen and carries it in a little basket attached to its hind legs. While they are known for their important role in pollinating flowers, they are also connected to the ugly image of stingers/needles.  It "makes" a delicious sticky substance called honey.  If you haven't already guessed it, this is a bee!




Okay, this might not be a blessing, but it is a gift. To make it simpler to organize, gifts will be the same as blessings. I hope this won't be confusing! :)
