Joy Cometh in the Morning

For his anger endureth but a moment; 
in his favour is life: 
weeping may endure for a night, 
but joy cometh in the morning.

The Light Shineth in Darkness

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  
The same was in the beginning with God.  
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.  
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:1-5

With my whole heart

With my whole heart have I sought thee.
O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.
Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.

Two White Lions Lying in the Sun

BIO: I took this photo of these two beautiful creatures in May of 2014. 
White lions are a color mutation of the African lion. 
They can range in length from 5’ to 10’ and weigh up to 500+ pounds. 
Their range is Timbavati, South Africa. 
Unfortunately, they are at high risk of extinction in the wild.

Shaker Village Houses

BIO: These two structures are on the west end of Shaker Village. 
The closest is the Old Stone Shop built in 1811. 
It served many functions over the years but was most recently used as a medical office. 
The farthest building is the West Family Dwelling built in 1821.

Shaker East Family Sewing Shop

BIO: This is a view of the East Family Sewing Shop in Shaker Village, Pleasant Hill, Kentucky.
The bright yellow paint stands out in sharp contrast to the nearly cloudless deep blue sky. 
This building was constructed in 1855. 
It was the center for sewing, spinning and weaving. 
Hundreds of silk worms were raised on the 2nd floor from which silk thread was harvested.
