LadyD Books: October Sunrise


So blessed to have seen this marvelous October sunrise. Photo for Skywatch Friday

Here's an interesting read regarding Christians and Halloween

I have had some fun times seeing the children dress up but there's a lot of evil running around out there. (scary times) If the children go trick-or-treating, please make sure you take your kids out tonight and watch over your family. I'm just sayin'...

As always, thanks for your encouraging words as I continue to learn about my camera, Nikon D200.

I'm looking forward to seeing your photos as well. Happy weekend to all!

Friday #56 

 "Then Joseph could not restrain himself before all those who stood by him, and cried out, "Make everyone go out from me!"
Excerpt from Genesis 45:1 Joseph revealed to His Brothers

My Thoughts 

 

I am so impressed with the professional quality and artistic layout of this wonderful children's Bible. Not only are the 20 full-color pages absolutely gorgeous but they're filled with tons of important information. From the very beginning the reader is drawn into learning new things and finding rich treasure in God's word. Then, children can read the directions on 'How to use this Bible' by getting acquainted with book names and chapters, section head, chapter and verse number. I especially like the page on 'How to know you are a Christian' with the invitation to grow in your new life in Christ.

My grandson's Sunday School class has a similar jungle theme as the Adventure Bible. While reading God's word, boys and girls will have so much fun with these particular features inside:
1. Memorize Verses
2. Bible Facts 
3. Pictures of Bible Life
4. Book Intros
5. Bible Application

My favorite section of the Adventure Bible that I find so engaging with all of my grandchildren, is the section called Live It! One example for personal application is about rich rewards in Ruth 4:1-22. Here kids learn to make cards for each guest at their birthday party and buy little presents with their own money. How precious to learn to be a thoughtful, loving friend. One more fine example of this great nurturing bible is from Live It! John 14:15-21 Paste a photo of yourself on a sheet of paper. Draw a big, bright circle around your photo. Let the picture remind you that God is with you, to give you strength to do right. The Adventure Bible is a great overall investment in planting seeds into your children and grand-children's lives. After all, it is the #1Bible for Kids!

5/5 stars! Highly recommend for home and church library. Great for kids 8-12!

Skywatch Friday: Pumpkin Skies

Pumpkin Sky Sunrise
 I enjoy the fall season around this time of year. We bring out our autumn decorations and place them around the house and the front entry way. Usually we have pumpkins and gourds growing around the ranch but this year we chose to visit a pumpkin farm instead. One particular October morning here in SoCal, seeing this warm sunrise was a pleasant surprise!

 The sky seems to change so rapidly from one minute to the next but the mountain silhouette pretty much stays the same.

 You can tell it's getting lighter as the orange colors begin to fade away. I like the color orange more and more. It's a "pumpkin sky" morning for sure. Photos for Skywatch Friday
