A Decade Ago…

Since I’m in that part of the month when our broadband isn’t strong enough to upload photos, I found these photos I took at the Seattle Japanese Garden in 2010. A decade ago when it was safe to travel all about the Seattle area. The area of Seattle on Capitol Hill that has been taken over by Antifa is a short distance from the Arboretum and the Japanese Gardens. I’m praying that there will be law and order again. In the meantime we wait and pray.

These quotes popped up in my Facebook Feed from years past…

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous but a gift to the guilty. -Steven Lawson (7 years ago)

Convicting thought from Jonathan Alexander during Sunday’s sermon...Am I educated in God’s Word beyond my obedience? Be a doer, not a poser! (6 years ago)

“You don’t have to be dead to move toward the light!”
I’ll add this verse to go with it…Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (3 years ago)

“You can get glad in the same shoes you get mad in.” (3 years ago)

And 1 year ago…
A little of this world will satisfy one who is strong in grace,
much will not satisfy one who is weak in grace,
nothing will satisfy one who is void of grace.
~Thomas Brooks

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Good to know about that same shoes bit. I have been feeling pretty wrathy lately. 🤐

    Have a splendid weekend and stay well away from the left coast.

  2. Lovely to see such beautiful photos even if they’re ten years old. I have taken to scrolling through my photos of late just looking at places I have visited. Have a lovely weekend. B x

  3. I live one mile from the area that protestors have taken over in Capitol Hill. They are all peacful and none are Antifa. It is still safe to travel around Seattle we walk by the protestors daily.

  4. Ellen – oh my goodness, those photos almost don’t look real. I am in love with the wisteria (I think it is) on the trellis. I am visiting my mom and working through a hotspot, so your post loaded quickly with just two photos – thank you. I have been “out of the loop” news-wise for the last 5 days since I have been 100% dedicated to my mom. Maybe that’s a good thing. Enjoy your weekend!
