Recently we spent a few days in Cedar Key, and as we walked along the water
that night I noticed this most unusual looking sunset.
I am sure I've never seen one that looked like this before. It sort of looks like smoke rising from the trees.
Or maybe a tornado drifting before it spins itself out. It had so much color, so much oomph!
This week on Inspiration Avenue, the challenge is sunrise/sunset. This is my post for the week.
If you would like to see all the interpretations, head on over to this page.
You could even post your own!

Standing at my work desk, looking out the windows,
I noticed this web attached to one of the metal posts out on the deck.
I haven't taken any photos in a long time, but I just had to go outside
to try to capture this shot as the dew and mist hung on the web.
Glad I did because it wasn't five minutes before
the sun came out and dried up all the mist.

I second shot a wedding with Color Me Happy Photography last weekend and am editing shots now. Simple though this may be - it is one of my favorite shots from the wedding. Probably because of the starfish in the foreground and the cross in the background. You know I am always looking for those cross shots! Stay tuned for more to come :).

A wonderful video put together by my friend Kaylin. She lives in Colorado Springs where the wildfires - the fire storms - are bringing danger and disaster. Yet, through it all God can still be praised. As Kaylin puts it - God is for me. Yes, Kaylin, He is. We continue to pray for you from here in Florida. I love you, sweetie! Praying you through this storm!

These are my new feed-the-horses-in-the-monsoon boots!
(Not a good quality picture - sorry - taken with my phone.) We needed to get hay to the horses, so we headed out. What a production! The first thing we noticed is that the road is still a major mess! See the pond where these teens are swimming? That's our road and they are standing up.
Thank the good Lord for our tractor! We were able to travel off-road to get a roll of hay in. Mark only lost the roll off the back of the tractor once - in the road :). Thankfully I was no longer standing on the side of the tractor at that point, because the front of the tractor lifted off the ground as the roll of hay splashed into the river! Uh, road!
The entrance to the fields is still under water, but it isn't quite as deep as it was yesterday. It is starting to receed.
And the front pasture is still under water, although not as deep :).
And in some spots it isn't horrible :).
This is the "higher ground" we moved the horses to. Normally the donkeys have full reign of this area, now all of the animals are housed in this field.
It is always safe to assume that Sawyer is thrilled to see food in any shape, form, or variety! What an awesome picture I got with my phone! I am still afraid to take my nice camera - and good thing when I almost got pitched into the river - uh, road - when we lost the roll of hay!
All in all, a very hopeful day! It didn't rain today - yay!!! The sun was shining for part of the day! The horses are fed, we didn't lose the tractor down a mudhole, and my fancy new boots kept my feet dry! Great day!!! Now, if our friends in Colorado could fare as well.
Lifting prayers for the Sieberts, Yuens, Rutkowskis, Greens, Craddocks, Schlichtings, Jeubs, Hagoods, and Steve Warren! Several have been evacuated. We are hearing conflicting stories about the house of one family. Praying for safety and a quick end to the fires!
Many of our speech/debate/communications families live in Colorado Springs - in the area of the fires. They are pictured in this photo. We are concerned that one of the families may have already lost their home, others have been evacuated and are awaiting news. Please lift a prayer for these people we love so much! For their safety, for their homes, for their jobs, for calm and peace. Please pray for the firefighters, for wisdom and equipment and abundant supplies of water. Pray for rain, no wind, stamina, strength, and success. Thank you - we are drying out here in Florida from our floods. Our focus is now on our friends and family in Colorado.
(I made this collage to be my cover photo on Facebook. That would explain the open space towards the left bottom - room for my profile pic.)
