This winter photo is in November 2014 and the one below is in July 2016. They are both looking northerly but not at the exact same spot. Probably within 50 feet of each other.
The blue sky accents the white bark in the winter scene. Yesterday it was a little hazy which I was thankful for. This kept the heat off us to an extent. Trees and brush leafed out causes a more busy look in the woods, blocking the sight distance.
It is easy to criticize others that are working for the Lord by those who are not doing anything. Putting forth effort, causes you to become aware of many obstacles that need to be dealt with. Be assured the work you are doing will be rewarded.
1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord."
Father, thank you for the grace you give us as we work for you.
