Photograph – Spare Carnivores

IMG_0696 (2)

WordPress Photo Challenge -This week, get inspired by the many connotations of the word “Spare”

The carnivorous plants in the Longwood Garden Conservatory always have a spare appearance to me, but looks matter little in trapping their prey. Many carnivorous plants depend on sweet mucilaginous glands to lure insects in.

Moral of the Story: Sweetness is often more alluring than glamour.

Praise and Phascination – Our Amazing World

 “My help comes from the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2

I love the display of carnivorous plants in the Longwood Gardens conservatory. They are fascinating and unique. I find joy and peace in knowing that the Maker of heaven and earth loves all mankind, and is the ruler of all the earth, no matter what man might say. The creator of such diversity is able to bring salvation and healing to every man or woman’s heart no matter what their circumstances, past or present. He can bring beauty out of ashes and dust. I think that good thought deserves an, “Amen.” Have a glorious Sabbath Day.

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?

 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven  and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber;

Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand;

The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm —he will watch over your life;

The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
