“It Is Bee or No Bee”

4 May 2018

Genesis 1:11-13 Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them”; and it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

I am so happy with these two images which I took a couple days ago. As one can see, the flowers are about the size of ones thumbnail. Both of these images are full size as taken, only brought to a smaller image size for purposes of internet use. Both of these images were taken with my Samsung S7 cell phone and given a slight tweak for sharpness and contrast. I was actually stunned to see the clarity of the bee on the phone screen and found it hard to believe such clarity and luck. I am still overjoyed with my decision for this cell phone model though I purchased it a couple years ago. I am also very pleased to take advantage of this online journal avenue to be able to present my images.

I have compiled a book, spiral bound so it lies flat when opened, of Israel with scriptures. It is a photographic journal type with 58 images from around Israel and a blank page after each image and scripture for writing one’s own thoughts. It can be used as a journal, diary, or a calendar appointment book. It is an A5 size (approx. 8×6 inches) I am intending to have it printed in the very near future and expect it will sell for around $18.00 plus tax. I would like to see if there might be any interest in this and if so, please leave a comment, no commitment. Thanks

“Accidental Discovery”


Isaiah 62:3 You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,” nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”; but you will be called, “My delight is in her,” and your land, “Married”; for the Lord delights in you, and to Him your land will be married.

I am so overjoyed with these new images. And have decided to add a different signature to my work. Today, we go to the Medical offices to retrieve our medical insurance here. It should be a fairly short process but there are two offices in different parts of the city to go to. It also could become somewhat costly, we shall see.
I had prayer over the skin cancerous lump on my arm last evening and the swelling has diminished considerably. Without the insurance, I cannot afford to see a doctor thus todays visit to the insurance people might be expensive but much less than seeing a doctor. Besides, my real doctor is Yeshua anyway.
It is now time for me to get ready for the downtown trip so will end this online journal.

Psalm 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth.

I had planned to write something that came to me in the night but as I did my daily exercise walking, I came across these two beauties that demanded my attention. Rightfully so as when I pulled them up in the computer, they nearly took my breath away, they are so beautiful. I take a lot of photographs of flowers, I have to admit. I am absolutely smitten with the beauty and diverseness of flowers. I did not have my pro camera with me but used my cell phone which has a fantastic close-up ability. (Samsung S-7) Since I live in Israel, I never leave home without it.
When I was on my walk yesterday, I found another beauty but it was a bit too far away for the cell phone and after my walk, I grabbed my pro camera and went back to the spot for some good images. I had not planned it but I am just so overjoyed with these new images, I had to share. This pink one is nearly iridescent on its own.
