DP Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Emphemeral:
adjective
1. Lasting for a very short time

It’s not very often we have a foggy morning here in Central Florida and when we do it doesn’t last very long. These were taken with my iPhone5. The first picture was taken in my backyard and the second one is at Lake Apopka.

Nurturing Thursday

Becca at ” On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” says:

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy”… I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

Come join in the fun!

Be like the bird who,
pausing in her flight awhile
on boughs too slight,
feels them give way beneath her,
and yet sings,
knowing she hath wings.

–Victor Hugo

Though we have rightly applauded our ancestors
for their spiritual achievements
. . .those of us who will prevail today will have done
NO SMALL THING

(Neal A. Maxwell)

I have often looked back on the history of my ancestors and thought how difficult things were for them and wondered how could they have persevered. Then I once read the words that if our ancestors could have looked into the future and seen our trials of today, they would have shuddered and wondered how on earth we could persevere.

So, I believe we are all born into the time in history for which we are best suited. Next time you think that you can’t handle your current trial, always remember that you are here, now, because you can. Have faith in the Lord and all things are possible.

 

Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Nature

From Lens and Pens by Sally, enjoy this week’s selections on Nature.

This first picture is a sample of the view when walking on part of the West Orange Trail in Winter Garden. Parts are so overgrown, I would never consider leaving the paved trail!

2013-10-07 trees_FotorI had some fun with this second picture. I usually don’t do much more editing than perhaps an auto correct and maybe some cropping on most of my photos. For this one, I still kept it simple. I went to Camera360, then V2, and selected Wings. I thought it gave it that early morning sun ray affect.  Hope you enjoy these!

On a personal note, I will be a bit sporadic with my postings and visits over the next little while. We have some health issues to take care of for hubby. Hope to be back on a more regular basis soon.
