Oh my, I woke up and it was Sunday and I had no pictures taken for the Scavenger Hunt soooooo I took my camera to church. I got there early so I had time to stroll around the countryside and snap some pictures. Here’s what I found for 1) pink or orange, 2) portrait without a face, 3) from the top, 4) stacked and 5) cozy. I had to pull one picture from the archives, but the rest are fresh off the press. I hope you love them!
pink or orange
My earliest days were spent on my grandmother’s pig farm. I was out shopping with my sisters yesterday and found this hand puppet in a wonderful kids’ store. I got some gifts for my grandchildren, but this little piggy is mine. She is so lifelike. The dogs can’t understand it when she “comes to life” and I think it may make a great tool for conversing on difficult subjects with the grandchildren. Anyway, I enjoy her just being with me. How’s that for convincing myself I needed her.
portrait without a face
I love this picture of my granddaughter, Kira, from behind as she listened to a music presentation at the School of Christian Mission this summer. Amazingly, this is the only picture from the archives.
from the top
When you come to my church and/or to the cemetery by the church, you are on the top of a mountain. Standing in the cemetery today, I took a picture so you could see how everything around the church and the cemetery is below them. You are, essentially, looking from the top when you are there.
These are the church’s old Sunday School hymnals stacked in the storage area beside the fan. It is kind of sad to see them there, but we don’t use them much so we put them in storage. As time moves along more and more songs are published and the older songs go into storage. Those of us who grew up on vintage Rodeheaver Publishing will not toss them out, however. There’s power in those old hymns. I just hope they don’t combust in that room!
Two of the neighbor’s cows were really cozy with the lines grounding the telephone pole to the ground. They were eating grass and scratching their heads against that insulated stablizing wire. It’s as cozy as I could get on this crisp, cool morning. I had to get to church.
I hope you had fun,
