Times and Seasons

Praise be to the name of God
for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are His.
He changes times and seasons;
He sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
He knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with Him.
Daniel 2:20-22

This also reminds me of Genesis 8:22

"While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.”

Lovely photo, accompanied by wonderful words. I am in *awe* of your blog, you do know that, don't you? Any day now I'm going to get in the car and head straight down to your place so we can meet in person and talk for hours on end. And we would ~ I just know it. : )

By the way, what's the secret to getting so many people actually reading ~ and commenting! ~ here? (Aside from actually posting, that photo blog postings have been rather scant of late. Ahem.) You're one popular woman!

Colleen~ You are welcome anytime!! Wouldn't that be fun? Yes, I'm sure we'd find all sorts of things to talk about. :) Or, we could head up your way, get an organic dairy farm tour, and count it as school!

I wouldn't use the word popular, but I would say that spending time blogging when you should be doing any number of other things helps draw readers, LOL! I'd visit your blog every day if you posted that often. :)

Beautiful picture! We used to live in the area and your pictures give me a glimpse of the beauty that I miss. Some also remind me of wonderful memories that have been forgotten. This verse also reminds me that I don't have to do "everything" on my own. Someone else knows all.

i love these verses from daniel, esp where it says that he deposes and lifts up kings. it gives me hope that even in this political season the Lord is still sovereign over all.

love the pic too. i miss WA state. but we are having beautiful colors here in my adopted city.
