Thankful Tuesdays: Overflowing

Today, on this hot, hot day, we give thanks for water that:

:: Gives new growth:

:: Can be collected... for washing and getting things clean... from clothes, to dishes, to walls and toilets...

:: Cools you down on impossibly hot days...

:: Provides endless hours of play and delight...

:: Washes us clean from any stains...

:: Reminds us of living water, and a fountain filled with blood:

There is a fountain filled with blood 
Drawn from Emmanuel's veins;
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Lose all their guilty stains.

All photos in this post (save for this one) were taken during another recent trip to Jacob Ballas Children Garden.

What are you thankful for this week?


  1. Oh wow!!! I love love love your photos!!! Great shots of the water! Did you use a special lens?

  2. I'm thankful that no matter how badly the day seems to go, God's always pulled me through and He gets all the glory =)
    Beautiful pictures!

  3. thankful for the upcoming trip and kids and parents.
    hopeful that it will be a happy journey.

  4. Sharon: Thanks! :) Nope just the regular 50 mm... but at a low f number (f1.8 I think)! I've just discovered that water photographs really nicely if shot against a dark background... :)

    Evergreen: Thanks! And that is one big thing to be really thankful about!

    PC: Where are you guys headed? The trip sounds exciting!
