Everyone seems to be pursuing gold these days, not only at the Olympics, but all around the world.
The Big Picture has 36 vivid images of people extracting, processing, refining, buying, selling and celebrating over gold.
While I was looking at them, this verse came to mind of something more valuable than gold:
“knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.” (1 Peter 1:18–19, ESV)
We’ve had some–far but few between downpours this summer. The other day we had our first day of steady rain in weeks, maybe a few months.
Never been a farmer so I can’t imagine how so many are hurting this year. From the Big Picture: Drought and downpour!
Looking at these pictures made me think of my soul as well. Which type of pictures illustrate your life right now? I hope it’s like the first pics but if it is more like the latter, I pray you may seek the Lord! He will not forsake you. He will bring blessing in due season as you trust and obey Him.
From the Big Picture:
A rare annular eclipse – a ring of sunlight as the new moon, passing between Earth and sun, blocks most, but not all, of the sun’s disc. It is striking to see. Differing from a total solar eclipse, the moon in an annular eclipse appears too small to cover the sun completely, leaving a ring of fire effect around the moon. The eclipse cast its shallow path crossing the West from west Texas to Oregon then arcing across the northern Pacific Ocean to Tokyo, Japan.
