Sunday Hunt plus Scripture & a Snapshot

I'm back to participating in Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday after taking a few weeks off!  I really enjoy doing the scavenger hunt and am glad to be back.  So let's get right to the photos, shall we?

The last Saturday in August I took the kids to McConnell's Mill to do some hiking.  The weather was gorgeous and we pretty-much had a great time.  Aside from the times the kids were fighting/bickering/whining.  :)  Keira and Nick both found millipedes while there, which is what they are holding in this photo.  These are the stairs that lead up from the Mill to the parking lot.  And after hiking 3-4 miles of rocky/hilly terrain, the stairs (of which only a small section you can see here) are pretty much torture.  :)

I threw on my 10x and 4x macro filters to get this shot of a lonely dandelion I found in my yard.  I had to keep Alex from blowing it away until after the photo shoot.  He wasn't very happy with me.  :)

During my run on Wednesday I noticed these clouds.  They looked like wispy flowery things (that's a technical term - in case you were wondering) so I snapped a photo.  Prairie Storm texture by Vintage West Photo added.

An out-of-focus photo of my black-eyed susans that I used a liquify filter on in PSE.  Scroll down to see the non-liquified version in Scripture and a Snapshot.

I love this Bible verse, although it is most difficult to do on a daily basis.  Thankfully one of God's promises is that "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." ~ Philippians 4:13.
