How To Get A Glimpse Of Eden

#Christianity, #Gardens, #Heaven, #Nature, #Photography

 

How to get a glimpse of Eden is really to try an imagine what our Eden home would be like. There is a clip in the video that says “Let your fantasies be founded on truth.” What I mean by this is; for Christians, we believe the words of the bible to be true, so we try to imagine what it would be like to get a glimpse of Eden, and imagine ourselves once again living in that beautiful garden. Of course the bible tells us that we just can’t imagine how beautiful it will be. I would rather think on these things than to think on negative and dark images.

Thinking on beautiful things always uplifts our minds. Who wouldn’t want to live in a beautiful garden, a perfect garden! Who wouldn’t want to be able to touch a rose and to know we wouldn’t be pricked by the thorns! Who wouldn’t want to have the perfect temperature…no complaints of too much heat, no complaints that its too cold.

A glimpse of Eden would be to live in a place with no threats of hurricanes, no threats of earthquakes, no disasters, no massacres, no more threats of global warming. Houses wouldn’t have to be boarded up when hurricanes are in the forecast. No running into the streets for earthquakes. We would gather together regularly without the fear of being shot and massacred. We would walk the Streets of Gold, no chance of a disaster taking place there.

Living in Eden would mean to live in perfect harmony with each other, no more black and white issues, no more police shootings. Everyone there will be like minded. We will uplift each other, we will know the meaning of true love, we will live joyously, walking the streets of gold forever and ever. When we keep reading scriptures, we will get glimpses of Eden, we will get glimpses of our eternal home.

By now many of you know that I love nature and wildlife photography, however, I am also drawn to barns and old buildings. I was going through some photos for this week’s video and came across this photo. I was drawn to the way in which the wild flowers framed the window.

I often wonder why the houses are left standing this way. Did they have a good life or a bad life? Was there some type of loss? There was also machinery and a very old truck that was also left behind….I wonder why?

Questions, questions, and no answers. So I guess each one of us could make up a story as to what we think happened here.

This photo was taken from one of the trails near Whistler Village in BC. I was actually looking at it not too long ago, my eyes catching first the two trees in the foreground. Then you have a layer of water making the separation, then you have some more trees. A little further back the mountains can be seen, making up yet another layer, and then in the distance you have the clouds above, and above that you have the blue sky peeking out. So there are many layers to be seen in this photo.

I’m sure I must have posted this one before, but I don’t see humming birds often in my backyard, so when I do, I always try to capture them.

While standing in the kitchen today, I looked out, and there was a humming bird on my zinnias. I was in a conversation on the phone, but had to put the person on hold, however that hummer got away.

This is my first humming bird that I captured a few years ago.

Unusual

Today’s photo challenge is to post a photo which I find unusual. I didn’t think I had any, but remember how unusual, but beautiful I thought this photo was.

This was taken on my last trip to Victoria BC. As my sister-in-law law and I were out for a walk, enjoying the view around us, we came upon this man, playing this beautiful piano, right there in the open, as he enjoyed a breath of fresh air at the same time.

If you enjoy photography and getting flight shots, there is nothing better than a bright sunny day, then you can bump up your Shutter Speed and lower your ISO and hope that opportunities  will come your way.

This summer has been quite a rainy one, but I was able to capture this male Blue Bird on one of our few sunny days.

So today’s photo challenge is about transitioning from one state to another. This is a Juvenile Bald Eagle and it is in a state of change. As we know, in its adult stage, the beak will be yellow, it’s head will be white.
