(Handle With Care) Post for Day 163 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


If you are careful with people, they will offer you part of themselves. That is the big secret.

Eve Arnold


People are often prickly to those that they think may cause them harm. But only those that handle with care will reap the blossom that grows amongst the thorns.


Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’


Judging a Book by Its Cover

Have you ever look at a person and thought you could judge exactly what that person was like? Or heard a friend or acquaintance speak of another person often enough that you felt you knew the whole story and how that person is?

It is a part of our human nature to do so. It’s almost as if it’s a defense mechanism put in place to keep us safe. For example, a woman walking down the street alone needs to be aware of those around her and able to make “the call” as to whether the stranger coming toward poses a threat or not. It’s sad but true.

We are even instructed to be discerning:

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. ~Hebrews 5:14

RosewaterSo, I’ve been playing.

Yesterday was an impromptu day off for me, and I finally got down to some things I’ve been wanting to do.

First on the list was making some more rose water. I have to admit that the first batch I had made sat in the fridge too long for my liking. That is the one caveat to working with natural ingredients….they have an expiration date. So, I sadly dumped my previous bottle of rose water down the sink and started another batch. Several hours later, I had what I needed and didn’t waste any time!

My first item of business was my toner that I’ve been using. This is an item that I haven’t marketed in my shop, just because of the shelf life. When working with a water-based ingredient, it adds a whole new aspect to the longevity of the product. And while I keep…

(The Weight Of Oppression ) Post for Day 162 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest.

Peace Pilgrim


The weight of our oppression is only measured by the importance you give it.


Matthew 11

29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”


Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Chapter 7: Who Is Your Temple Dedicated To?


Today we will look at our dedication of our understanding. To whom does the glory go?

A Temple Dedicated to One


1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (You are more than one)

The building up of the Temple of God is a process that is developed over time and it doesn’t happen all at once. It is a process of breaking down misconceptions that you have built up over the years with your ideals and beliefs that create your judgments of self and others. The Temple of God is not the Temple of You, and it is not based on personal misconceptions, but it is rather built up on solid truths. It is established on a series of understandings that are universally beneficial to yourself and to the others around you. I…

(Self-Importance Is Madness) Post for Day 161 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


In madness, I thought I was the most important person in the world.

John Forbes Nash, Jr.


The croaking of madness drives men to believe they are the most important person in the world. If you serve only yourself, then you serve a false king.


Psalms 105:30 Their land abounded with frogs, Even in the chambers of their kings.


Revelation 16:

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.


(Fate Verses Destiny) Post for Day 160 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.

Paulo Coelho


Fate Verses Destiny,

Fate is the final destination, but destiny is how you get there… It has never been about the finish line, as it has always been about the race.


Hebrews 12:1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

(God Made Diversity To Create Discovery) Post for Day 159 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.

Max de Pree


There is but one Lord above all but He wears many faces. Each person who is convinced He knows all there is to know about Him is blind and sees only himself reflecting in the mirror of truth, and misses the wonder found in His glorious diversity. Do not judge another’s servant for they all serve their own master… Yet in truth are not all serving only one greater truth, one master of all? Just because you are blind to their sight do not presume to know better, only you see things from another point of view. Who are you to believe you know more than He who creates all. Is not all a product of His Creation? Both Good and Evil alike come from only one source. Though you may not know the reason it rains does it not still fall upon you? Truth is found in many places and in many faces… and the Christian that condemns another is yet the worst of these that offend. Love is unconditional. Only hate casts judgment.


Romans 14:5 One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.


(Beauty Is Not Seen With Eyes) Post for Day 158 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.



Beauty is not seen with the eyes, but with the heart.


Do not let your adornment be merely outward — rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.


1 Peter 3:

3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward — arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel —

4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.


Revealing the hidden truths in scriptures – MARK 4:11
