Tuesday Prompt: First thing you see

This week’s Tuesday prompt is: Walk outside, what is the first thing you see?

You can write about it, draw it, photograph it, imagine it, whatever as long as you have fun.

In our case, when you walk out onto our front porch the very first thing you see is a tree.  A large, carpenter ant infested sugar maple to be exact.  One that sits directly in front of our front porch, symmetric to the one the previous owners planted directly in front of the back porch, and parallel to the ones they planted at each corner of the house.

Being that it is rather dark outside and I can’t see a thing if I look out I thought I would use a previous doodle for this week. 🙂  (And yes, the ear infection seems to be mostly gone –Buried Treasure ACF plus an occasional drop of peroxide in the ear seems to have done the trick.)

You can find the list of prompts here if you want to take part next week.

Sunday Praise Doodle: work

1 Peter 4:11
If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

(Thursday during the yard sale Issac wrote and created cards for several of his friends–Pam, next time I see you he made one for each of your girls.)

Sunday Praise Doodles: Children

A doodle of Essie from a picture of Essie I caught yesterday.  (She rolls her eyes a lot.  She is 8.5. :))  I wanted to use the following verse for this weeks.

3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Psalm127:3-5

But Rachel saw the painting and insisted that the one that follows was much more appropriate. 🙂

6 Train  a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6

I’ll let you decide. 🙂  Which do you think is more suited, or do you have a better idea?

Sunday Praise Doodle: Psalm 104

A side note: the following was sketched out while watching the kids play in the pond today.  The sheer joy and peace they had was heartening and brought to mind Psalm 104 and its wonderful story of God’s absolute provision.  I only share a portion of it here, the rest can be found here.

10 He makes springs pour water into the ravines;  it flows between the mountains.

11 They give water to all the beasts of the field;  the wild donkeys quench their thirst.

12 The birds of the air nest by the waters;  they sing among the branches.

13 He waters the mountains from his upper chambers;  the earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work.

14 He makes grass grow for the cattle,  and plants for man to cultivate—  bringing forth food from the earth:

15 wine that gladdens the heart of man,  oil to make his face shine,  and bread that sustains his heart.

16 The trees of the LORD are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.

17 There the birds make their nests;  the stork has its home in the pine trees.

18 The high mountains belong to the wild goats;  the crags are a refuge for the coneys. [b]

19 The moon marks off the seasons,  and the sun knows when to go down.

20 You bring darkness, it becomes night,  and all the beasts of the forest prowl.

21 The lions roar for their prey  and seek their food from God.

22 The sun rises, and they steal away;   they return and lie down in their dens.

23 Then man goes out to his work,   to his labor until evening.

24 How many are your works, O LORD!   In wisdom you made them all;

the earth is full of your creatures.

25 There is the sea, vast and spacious,  teeming with creatures beyond number—   living things both large and small.

26 There the ships go to and fro,  and the leviathan, which you formed to frolic there.

27 These all look to you  to give them their food at the proper time.

28 When you give it to them,  they gather it up;  when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.
