Bless the LORD, O my soul!
O LORD, my God, you are great indeed!
How manifold are your works, O Lord!
the earth is full of your creatures;
May the glory of the LORD endure forever;
may the LORD be glad in his works! Pleasing to him be my theme;
I will be glad in the LORD. Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
If you take away their breath, they perish
and return to their dust. When you send forth your spirit, they are created,
and you renew the face of the earth. Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
Psalm 104: 1, 24, 29-30, 31, 34
All photos for this psalm were taken at Mt. Rainier National Park last weekend, in the forests near Ohanapecosh and from the Eastside Road.
So, last weekend as we drove along Highway 123--the Eastside road of Mt. Rainier National Park, for what has to have been the hundredth time in the last few years, I spotted this:
When was your last "Where'd that come from?" moment?
I'm headed off in a bit to my book club meeting. We gather once a month for a casual discussion of a book chosen by consensus. This month it is Stolen Lives: 20 Years in a Desert Prison. A book club gives a good opportunity to discover books and authors you might not otherwise be drawn to. It also gives a good chance to browse in Inklings, an independent bookstore in Yakima.
Other PhotoHunters looking at books this week can be found at TnChick's blog.

A bridge under blue skies. Find other skies at the SkyWatch site.
We had full blue skies for the day's outing, and the bridge gives some graphic lines for a drive by photo session. I'm glad I wasn't driving.

The Russians build churchs to commemorate some interesting things. This one was built to celebrate a battle won.

Bless the LORD, oh my soul;
and all my being, bless his holy name.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
The Lord has set his throne in heaven.
and his kingdom rules over all.Zion National Park
Bless the LORD, all you his angels,
you mighty in strength, who do his bidding.

It was eleven years ago that we traveled to Russia. The trip had to do with family matters--a wedding that we missed, meeting our son's fiancee and family. Our Russian travel contact told our local travel agent that "these people are going to unusual places." But we did the tourist thing as well. St. Basil's Cathedral above is the best known landmark of Red Square. The building below houses the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.
The unusual places we were going to were in Siberia. No one we met in European Russia could fathom any reason to go to siberia. It is as distant to them as it is to us.
But without going to Siberia we would not have seen this shrine at the site of the death of Czar Nicholas and his family in Ekaterinberg.

Does anyone else find the concept of a solar flashlight a bit of an oxymoron?

All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation by our God.
