I Have to seek God Beauty

"I have to seek God beauty.
 Because isn't my internal circuitry wired to seek out something worthy of worship?  
Every moment I live, I live bowed to something.  
And if I don't see God, I'll bow down before something else."  
Ann Voskamp








Before and After Photos
These sunset pictures were taken on our 11th anniversary date this weekend.  We had dinner out and then walked the pier to the beach and watched the sunset over Lake Michigan.  It seemed all the tourists made the evening trek out, something like a ritual, a worship of the sun-god.  What I witnessed, though, brought me to worship before the Son.  What a witness of God's glory!
We had a great time watching this sailboat get closer and closer, until the sun went down and all that was left was the sailboat on the horizon.

Walk on a Empty Street
We drove the big, black truck down an old railroad bed.  Sorry it's blurry.  I used the automatic timer and since the camera kept wanting to flash, I turned it off.  Because we were moving, it turned out blurry.

Me and my sweetie holding hands, waiting for dinner...afterwards, wished we had gone somewhere else.
