Mosaic


I suppose I should do this on Monday and call it "Mosaic Monday," but I'll probably not be able to stick to a schedule, although I may try after this. I've seen this done on other blogs, and thought it was neat and wanted to share some of my favorite photos I've found on flickr lately. And to add something a little more personal and thought-provoking, I decided I'd try to add a Bible verse, quote, or reason I liked each picture (at least this time). Hopefully, the photos themselves will be inspiring, too.

1. Lilacs ~ My favorite flower.
"As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more." - Psalm 103:15, 16

2. This couple looks happy and loving of one another.
"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones." - Proverbs 17:22
"Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith." - Proverbs 15:17

3. I just liked the colors on this one, and the girl is cute, though not so happy looking.
"It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth." - Lamentations 3:27

4. I liked this creative and cheerful arrangement.

5. Dreamy looking, good idea for a picture, to use a reflection.
"Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;" - Ecclesiastes 12:1

6. Just thought they were cute with the buttons on them.

7.
"And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies." - 2 Samuel 22:12

8.
Cats are probably my favorite animal.
"Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven." - Psalm 148:7-13


9. I love the old look here, and the light streaming. However, there can be too many books, or too much vain reading, as the following verse says.
"And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh." - Ecclesiastes 12:12

10. "For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off." - Isaiah 55:12, 13

11. "The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house." - Psalm 104:16, 17

The rest I shall just say that I liked how they looked. :) I could have arranged them better, though.
