Simple + Southern Sunday No. 38

 “He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus”

‭Revelation‬ ‭22‬:‭20


“All of creation, all of the earth, make straight a highway
A path for the Lord.  Jesus is coming soon!
Call back the sinner, wake up the saint, let every nation
Shout of Your fame! Jesus is coming soon!
Like a bride waiting for her groom, we’ll be a church
ready for you!  Every heart longing for our King
We sing…even so come, Lord Jesus come”
Written by Chris Tomlin, Jess Cates, Jason Ingram

    The lovely pictures of the cloud formations gave me goosebumps. It certainly does remind me of my creator. I could surely sit and reflect while sitting on the little red chair by the lake. What a serene setting and one I could use to collect my thoughts and find peace. Thank you for sharing such wonderful pictures of astounding nature.

    Hi Pam! I always enjoy your Simple Southern Sunday posts. I must say, your photography skills are fantastic. Love that close-up of the mushroom. I always focus on flowers and “pretty things” and never take the time to photograph little common things. I love your outlook on how we should view the world. Taking mental notes. 🙂 Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday! Have a great week!

  4. I love all the beauty you have captured in your pictures – you have an eye for beautiful. In fact that was what drew me in to check out your post – the great picture of the red chair by the water – so peaceful, restful, and inviting. I’m stopping by from Imparting Grace

    Beautiful images! I love my hibiscus and actually just bought another one today on clearance. The birthday girl is a doll and yes, she travels in style. Love the beauty of nature and God! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
