My dog loves me 

Posted by Pastor Ron Sunday, February 06, 2011 8:00:00 AM
My dog loves me Well... she really isn't my dog. She belongs to my granddaughter Maddie. But a bonding took place early on and even though I only see her occasionally she loves me and is excited to see me. And she will leap tall fences to greet me when I visit. Maddie says that I need to... read more

Plenty of guns but no umbrella 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, February 05, 2011 8:00:00 AM
Plenty of guns but no umbrella I was taking a big chance trusting that Josh wouldn't really squirt my camera. The gamble trust paid off... at least for me. What do you think about trust? With people it isn't always a sure thing. But with God it is. You are never taking a chance with God. It is never a gamble ~ it is... read more

If umbrellas were guns 

Posted by Pastor Ron Friday, February 04, 2011 8:00:00 AM
If umbrellas were guns What isn't showing in the picture above is who this assault umbrella is pointing at. Though I am clearly in the line of fire, the umbrella is aimed at a small child walking alongside the man at the entrance to a Walmart in Mexico. (Yes, Walmart is everywhere.) I don't have any idea... read more

Oranges and Opals These beautiful creatures go about their lives unseen by most people, but God who made them is aware of them.

Fast Attack Slug 

Posted by Pastor Ron Wednesday, February 02, 2011 8:00:00 AM
Fast Attack Slug As I posted Sunday, Nudibranchs come in a wide assortment of sizes, shapes, colors and even modes of locomotion. The 'Giant Nudibranch' is one that does the twist. They twist and twirl to send themselves flipping and flopping through the water. Click the photo above for pictures of the ... read more

The angel on my shoulder Do you have an angel on your shoulder? Is there someone in your life who helps you walk the right way. I have written before about the angel God sent ~ the messenger of His Grace. Well, it bears reading again. As does the question, 'Are you an angel?' And the follow-up question, 'Are... read more

Naked Gill

Naked Gill The creature in yesterday's post was a Hooded Nudibranch. The name Nudibranch (pronounced nude-i-brank ) comes from two Greek words meaning 'naked gill'. Click the image below for more of my Hooded Nudibranch pictures. Nudibranchs are marine mollusks with exposed gills ~ most often... read more

Here is something you don't see everyday! 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, January 29, 2011 8:00:00 AM
Here is something you don't see everyday! Many of my pictures would fall into that category but especially this one. Even scuba divers don't see these everyday. What is this thing? Plant? Animal? Mineral? Are those legs/flippers? Is that hair? Where is the mouth and where are the eyes? God has made some strange looking... read more
