Dear Jesus....

I prayed today before I headed out to take photos.  I asked the Lord again to help me see through His eyes and to give me a special photo.  A special photo to remind me of today and what's been going on this week.  My husband and I decided this week we needed to close our cookie and ice cream shop after eight years of business.  The Lord has been preparing me, and He has given me peace! 

I still feel the Lord wants me to get my book published.  The book is about my mom passing away from ALS in 2004 and other deaths I have been through.  I will have all the time in the world to devote myself to my book.

My prayer is, "Dear Jesus...." please show me your will for my life!  Amen:)

The Story

"The Story"  Photo by Judy Royal Glenn

Find a photographer and usually they can tell you a lot of stories behind taking their photos.  I will always remember the story behind this photo.  To you it is just a photo, but you weren't there experiencing the weather, circumstances, or what I had to go through to get the shot.

I felt impressed for some reason to sit on a tree over the river.  I quickly dismissed the "silly" thought.  I wasn't going to get great photos of birds on this tree.  I continued on my journey, but the birds were hiding from me! Then I thought maybe I was "supposed" to take photos on the tree.

When I went back to the tree, a couple was sitting one it, so I continued walking.  I prayed and told the Lord He was a God of second chances, and if He wanted me to take pictures on the tree I would.  I went back again, and no one was there, so I ventured carefully out on the tree.  I didn't want to fall in the river with my camera. 

I ended up taking a picture of a much larger bird; his name is Phillip, and he is a college student at UGA.  He climbed out on the tree next to me which was high over the river.  He wanted me to send him a photo of himself sitting on the tree.  I did just that and have not heard back from him. 

I don't know the reason I met Phillip that day, but I knew that is the reason why the Lord impressed me to take photos on that tree.  The day I posted my ALS blog, I asked my readers if they had asked the Lord into their hearts as their personal Lord and Savior.  That was the day I met Phillip and told him about my blogs.  He could have met Christ that day, missed being in a car accident, or may other scenarios.

The key is I did what I felt the Lord asked me to.  What is the Lord asking you to do that could be as simple as "taking pictures on a tree?"  It could have a life changing impact on someone.  Hey Phillip, if you are reading this!

It's A Girl!

Robin left a comment on my blog letting me know about the bird banding program by the United States Geological Survey.  She let me know if I had the exact number of 1048, it should be reported at http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/  She told me it helps them understand bird patterns, and they would give me a nice certificate for helping!
I did not know the full tag number, so I looked at all my pics and found this one with the last digits I needed!  I went to the website, typed in the info and found out "It's A Girl!"  Here is the info they sent me:
Band Number: 1048-37449
Species: CANADA GOOSE
Date banded: 06/18/2009
Banding Location: 5 SW FT VALLEY, PEACH COUNTY, GEORGIA, USA
Age: HATCHED IN 2008 OR EARLIER
Sex: FEMALE


So her "real name" is 1048-37449.  Thanks Robin for helping me learn something new:)

Get It Off!

I watched 1048 for quite some time because I enjoyed taking photos of him.  He wanted his tag off!  This was the best photo, but I could have posted tons of photos of 1048 trying to "Get It Off!"
