as I stood there looking at this beauty with my family when we were on a family holiday, I couldn't help but be reminded of this verse that talks about the heavens declaring the Glory of God. There was such incredible beauty at this lake.
This is the only photo in this calendar that is not from Saskatchewan the rest of the photos are all taken in SK
this photo for January was taken out of our front window at Shell Lake, SK - there are always a lot of blue jays out in winter - we love them - their blues are so much bluer in the winter than in the summer.
the photo for March was taken on the Ahtakakoop Native Reserve near Shell Lake, SK when we were visiting some friends there. These horses were eager to pose for me while the sun was setting behind them. It made for some great photos.
I captured these incredible clouds painted by God near Hepburn/Waldheim, SK area. I chose it for the April photo because the colors make me think of Easter and Jesus' death on the cross for our sins and the new life we have in him because he didn't stay in the grave - He Arose! and now lives in heaven, preparing a home for us, his children.
the photo for May is of a baby bird that had been sitting on our grass one day so our daughter picked it up and held it for a bit in our yard in Warman, SK - it couldn't fly yet and we weren't sure where the mother was but God allowed us to have this special time with this little guy for a few moments before it got too scared and fluttered and danced away. I love moments like that with my kids. :-)
July photo taken at Camp Kadesh at Christopher Lake, SK This place is one of my favorite places to be. :-) It was a gorgeous morning and I was out taking photos. I was down by the dock and just as I was about to shoot the picture - the last one on my roll of film, a dog ran out onto the dock. I knew it was gonna be a cool shot and I thanked God right there for what He had given me. I couldn't wait to get into the city to get it developed.
This September photo was taken on a drive out by Quill Lake, SK My husband and my son and gone elk hunting in the area out near Fishing Lake, SK with a friend and they had shot an elk. They had the meat made up for it out there and so when the time came for the meat to be picked up, I offered to go get it. I'd never been out in that part of Saskatchewan so I was looking forward to taking some photos in that area. God gave me some great photos that day. There's also one from the area in the Prairie Scenes calendar as well.
what he's doing, praising the Lord. :-)
December photo taken just south of Warman, SK It was another gorgeous frosty day - I think SK has the greatest hoarfrost days! It's definitely a unique, wonderful part of SK winters.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing the photos of the Inspirational Calendars and learning the stories behind each picture. I love hearing the stories behind photos that are taken by others and I thought this year, I would share the stories with you to make it a little more personal. Some photos just have an incredible story to them and it gives the photo so much more meaning when you know the story behind them.
