Weekend Wisdom From Abraham Lincoln

Wednesday was the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s passing from wounds inflicted by his assassin, John Wilkes Booth the night before.

I intended on doing something this past Tuesday and Wednesday but was too sick to think of anything.

Then I came across this quote on Pinterest and decided to use it as Weekend Wisdom.

 “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.” 

Abraham Lincoln

16th President of the United States of America

February 12th,1809 – April 15th, 1865

Thank you, Mr. President for your wisdom and guidance during this country’s darkest hour.

31 Days of Joy: Day 11 – Joy At Sunset

My 48 hour work week is done. (cue Mr. Handel – Hal-le-lu-jah! Hal-le-lu-jah!)

I was outside watching the sun set through the trees in the woods behind my house. The sky is a beautiful shade of light blue with white and thin, dark grey clouds highlighted by the setting sun.

Then from out of the north comes this high-pitched chirping sound and a flock of little, black birds flying south. Not sure what type of birds they are – or are these speed racers of the sky vampire bats? Good thing I have a scarf around my neck.         😉

Now the clouds have turned a brilliant orange color.  Must. grab. my. camera.

What a way to spend the end of a long work week – out on the deck enjoying a beautiful autumn sunset.

Thank you God for the energy to get through the week and for tonights colorful sunset.

31 Days of Joy: Day 9 – Another Blogging Milestone!

Wow! 2 blogging milestones in one week. Wahoo!

First there was Monday’s 1,000th post on this blog and today WordPress notifies me that my “31 Days of Autumn in Ohio: Day 9 – Blood Moon”, is my 100th post on Ogleohio (my photography blog).

It’s the perfect pick me up for a Thursday of a 48 hour work week. Now there will be an extra spring in my step today.

Of course the “Blood Moon” photo would not be possible if it were not for God, as He created it.

He created me with the eye to see pictures everywhere I look.  My mind frames numerous pictures whenever and wherever I drive. It’s how my brain is wired – to look at things from different angles and viewpoints.

A former supervisor recognized that skill in me. She knew whatever problem I brought to her, I had a developed a solution based on my considering the different angles of the situation.

Thank you God for my “eye” for photography, for seeing situations from multiple viewpoints and for the milestones reached this week on both JoyReturns and OgleOhio.

Soli Deo gloria – glory to God alone!
