Rock Creek Falls! Part Two

These pictures were taken on October 27.
They were even more beautiful!

This time I went closer.
The rocks are really neat!

"As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?"
Psalm 42:1-2

Rock Creek Falls! Part One

How many of you thought something fell when you read the title? : )

I remember having lunch with friends, playing in the water, and skipping rocks here when I was little.
It is so beautiful! 
I took these pictures on October 20th.

"Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
John 4:13-14

It is snowing today and I was thinking about a picture I took at Camp, so...
Here are the results!

Snow affect on Picnik

I had a lot of fun with this one!

And the original
Taken on August 10th, 2011 11:13:57 PM to be exact. : ) 

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 
Isaiah 55:10-11

These clouds were so interesting! I don't think I have ever seen clouds quite like theses. 

Simeon wanted me to use the Lomo-ish effect on Picnik, so here is the picture : )

Dried Apples

This October(yes, that long ago), I hurt my foot and couldn't really walk on it for a a few days and had to rest it for a few more days, so I made dried apples!
The one day I made them, I decided to take pictures. 
I have three different pictures and edited them two different ways.

These first three are Picnik's Boost.

These ones are Picnik's Cross Process.

Let me know which ones you like best!

"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver."
Proverbs 25:11

Anna and "Her" Horse

One morning, a couple weeks ago, Anna wanted to get some pictures with Star, and this is my favorite.
Star is all of ours, but Anna takes care of him and rides him the most.

"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire."

On this beautiful 11-11-11, we woke up to snow!
The snow, the lighting, Beautiful!
Thank you, Lord, for this beautiful day!

Thanks for taking my picture Sarah!

Today is Veterans Day.
I am so thankful for all those who have served to defend our freedom.
I especially want to honor my Grandpa. He served from 1952 - 1954 in Germany(Korean War).
Thank you to all those who have served our country!

I took this picture during the Covered Bridge Festival. We have a covered bridge just over the hill on our road. The bridge was built in 1868 and restored in 1983.

Here is a picture from 2009 when Josiah brought Erin over for a visit (I do not have any new pictures on this computer).
We like to take walks down to "our" bridge. Earlier this fall, some of us took a walk and I got some pictures of Sarah and Lydia at the bridge. I need to post them soon!

Giveaway Winner!

Well, I did it very formally, not.
This is how the winner was chosen...
While waiting for my turn to play Racko last night (only four people can play, but five of us wanted to),
I tore a napkin up into 9 pieces, wrote numbers 1-9 on them, then crumbled them up. I then had Simeon pick one(he had no idea what he was doing : )).
And the winner is...

Comment # 8
Melody Peeler
I will e-mail you the code to get it as soon as they send it to me.

I wish all of you could have own, but I only had one to give away.

P. S. By the way, Mrs. Peeler is the BEST Kitchen Superintendent/Cook in the world!

Here is a picture that I already posted, but that I really like and I am looking forward to winter.

S & S...

Sarah and Star!
I haven't forgotten about my blog, we just have had some computer trouble. I think it is all fixed now, though.
I have been busy lately. It seems like I go somewhere everyday. Sunday-Church, Monday-Good News Club, Wednesday-Piano lessons and Prayer Meeting, Thursday-work, and sometimes I go somewhere on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. Life just seems to be getting busier.
Don't forget about the Giveaway!
"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."
James 1:2-4

SGI Conference!

I am excited! This January is a conference in Michigan that I went to in January 2010 (But a different theme). They have it every other year, and it is almost time for the next one!
The Conference is for college students and young adults.
Lord willing, I will be there, and maybe I will see some of you there, too!
