Blossoms on a Tree

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Joy: Blossoms on a Tree

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.” —Philippians 4:4-8

    Simply lovely, Emily! Trees in full blossom are simply amazing but they are also very hard to properly capture as it is easy to get lost in all of the flowers, you, however did a very nice job!

    I am sure you already saw these but here are my two interpretations of this same basic subject:



    Keep up the good work!

    Beautiful! All of your posts come at such a lovely time! Might I ask what camera/lenses you use? Not that the equipment constitutes talent, but just looking at your photos, I can only aspire to photograph God’s beauty like you do. You are very talented at it…it’s a God-given gift.

    Have a lovely, blessed day! :-)

    Stunning flowers my dear! :D Your photography skills are excellent! :)

    Such sweet verses…and some of my favorite ones. ;) “Be anxious for nothing” was a hard one for me to learn (or at least start learning). As well as the “think on these things” part…yeah, still working on that one. :) HeHe!

    I hope you and your family are doing well my dear! :D

    God Bless!
    Love and Hugs!
