Photography-God's handiwork

This is an important blog today because right now in my town there is a flood.  The river is continuing to rise.  Risking all people of Owatonna losing power.  And loss of power with this much water and rain could mean water in basements even in parts of town like where I live.  Because even though we are up high, my sump pump is running every 20 seconds since we had the equivilent of 3 months rain in 1 1/2 days.  Yikes!  That was a lot of rain.  And they say we might get more.  

Just the other day I was out taking these pictures.  And I am still in awe of God's wondrous works.  Today is windy, and we can be thankful for that wind because wind.....helps dry up water!
So, this wasn't my first thought when I set out to type this blog, but I think it fits nicely.  Even now when times are stressful, or terrible and painful, and full of material loss, we can KNOW God is in control.  And we should still PRAISE him in this storm.  

And it's always important to stop and see God's handiwork in all the little details around us.

I love taking pictures so much.  And I love God and his creation so much!   I put them together by enjoying them and in return taking pictures of lots of things in nature/creation.

The other day we had a bunch of mushrooms in our yard since it's so wet out there.  And by each other there were 3 different kinds of mushrooms growing.  Amazing at the little details God has given us.

I especially love Psalm 19....
vs 1 says  

The heavens declare the glory of God;
       the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 

I'm always in awe of God's awesome workings just by looking at the sky, but there are so many things around us on the ground too that proclaim the work of his hands.

Since it's autumn, I also was noting some of the changes God has put in place.  Most flowers are dying and gone, but this is one late bloomer.  Standing out among the bunch.

And proof that fall is here.  A small little section of my burning bush starting the turning process.
Are you rejoicing in the beauty of God's creation when you look around?
