Celebrating Jesus' Birth Through Ornaments

"Celebrating Jesus' Birth Through Ornaments"  Photo by Judy Royal Glenn

Since we are celebrating Christmas, I thought I would change my blog for today to reflect Jesus' birth.  It ties together because He is the one who allows me to see through His eyes. 

 I have enjoyed making wooden ornaments through the years.  My favorites happen to be the ones that celebrate the birth of Jesus.

"And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger....


"And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear.  And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."  (ESV, Luke 2.8-11)

"But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart."  (ESV, Luke 2:19)

 I hope you have a blessed and Merry CHRISTmas!

It is called a trumpet flower because it resembles a trumpet when it is open:)
 
They are so big and beautiful:)

I'm glad we don't have a boring God that would make everything look the same.  I don't like spiders, but I really thought this little guy was kinda neat!  I have never seen a green spider, and one that has dots on its back that match the flower's color!!

The highlight of my cruise was swimming with the dolphins!
This is a photo of me and my daughter "dancing" with the dolphins. Can you tell from the expressions on our faces that we are having fun?

Me kissing my dolphin.


Me getting a hug from my dolphin.


Getting a kiss from my dolphin!


The one thing I enjoyed the most was being pushed by the dolphins in the water!  I had two dolphins push me by my feet through the water.  My son was an excellent photographer!!

My dad sent my entire family and our extended family on a cruise to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving!  There were twenty-two of us all together.  We had a blast:)

 
  As we were headed out of port, I noticed the biggest rainbow I have ever seen in my life.  
 
The shrimp boat will give you some perspective.
 
  God is good:)

Curly, Larry, and Moe!

I knew this may be one of my last photo sessions before winter strikes!  I got up early to go to the beach and asked the Lord to bring birds so I could take photos.  When I got to the beach, I noticed two very large birds near the shore!  They were pelicans!  As I got closer, I noticed one of the pelicans was resting. Then I saw a seagull next to the pelican.  Why would a seagull want to hang out with the big boys, I'll never know?!

Well, better late than never.  I went on a cruise this week and had two posts scheduled to publish while I was gone.  When I looked tonight....they weren't published!  Sorry:)

A "Knock" At The Door!

I went to the door to let my dog out and as I opened the door, she stopped and stared at the door frame.  I looked down to find this little fellow.

Notice the appearance of his fake eyes!  Don't be deceived at the outside appearance of a person, animal, or object, for hidden inside could be something very beautiful!

An Optical Illusion!

I just love this flower with the neat little green slits in the back of the flower.  Well.....I thought they were slits until I went back to the Botanical Garden the next time and saw the flower again.  It is an optical illusion! There appears to be slits so you can see the background behind the flower, but the green coloring is part of the flower!!  Kinda neat:)  


This is a different flower that shows it a little better!

I had a little help with this photo. The Lord once again answered my prayer!  The odds of taking a photo of a lily pad flower and a frog just happened to be there......maybe a million to one?

Don't You Love My Pretty Eyelashes?

My son was my assistant photographer and helped me stage this photo. While we were on our safari, he threw food out of the window.  The ostrich at one point had his head in our SUV.  Hence, the reason we can see its eyelashes so well!

Focus On The SON

"Focus On The SON"  Photo by Judy Royal Glenn
Click on the photo for a closer view!


As I drove back from dropping my son off at school, I noticed the bright, big sun coming up.  It was beautiful!  The thought that popped in my mind was "That is what I need to focus on!"  Meaning, I needed to focus on the SON, not the sun.

There were a few clouds in front of the sun that were skewing the shape of the sun a little making it seem oval.  But, the truth be told, the SON never changes; He is always there.

This particular photo brings back so many memories because I took it at an Easter sunrise service on St. Simons Island.  My mom had just recently passed away from ALS, and it was our first holiday without Mom.  The SON was what got me though those tough times!

If you don't know the SON, He will change your life like He did mine!  It is easy as ABC.....  A: Admit you are a sinner (Romans 3:23)    B: Believe in Jesus (Acts 16:31)       C: Confess your sins (1 John 1:9)

Peaceful

This white duck was nestled under some trees at the bank of a lake.
He was very peacful, and he did not mind I was photographing him from a close distance.

Until right after I took my pictures, my sunglasses fell off my hat and landed about twelve  inches in front of the duck.  I thought they were going to go into the pond!

I found this little guy on my front porch not long ago. 


He was kinda scared of me, so he kept jumping round from place to place.  Note his little "toe" is raise on his left "foot."



No direct eye contact, but he still has his eye on me!

When I was at Callaway Gardens, I found a lot of  finches amongst the flowers.

There is a funny ending to this photo session.  I did not know the garden was closed until my husband called to tell me the gate was locked.  I wasn't paying attention to anything but the birds.  I had no idea!  I had to climb over the fence to get out:)

I had the hardest time giving this photo a title.  I can't put into words the emotions this photo makes me feel!




After a trip to the Botanical Garden, I noticed them in a field near the fence. I parked my car on the side of the road and started taking pictures.  This one is my favorite!  I love his coloring; he seems like a very sweet horse.


This one was in a desperate need of grooming!  Well, I've kept a small secret about these little guys, they are truly little!  Hence the reason I gave you pics of just their head shots.


They are so cute.  While I was there, two other cars pulled off the side of the road to look at them.
 
If I straddled this horse, my toes would probably touch the ground!

This one makes me snicker.
