Functioning Faith

Mustard seeds

Planting mustard seeds

On my knees, moving mountains,

Breaking down barriers.

Senryu

Believe and Pray:

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20 KJV

Clear Views

Haiku about seeing 5 mountains on a clear day
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson©2014 Photograph created in Photoshop from images found on Wikipedia.com Views of Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Jefferson, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier.

Bald Peak State Park–Scenic Viewpoint.  In clear weather the park offers views of Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Jefferson, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier.
(I actually saw the view of the five mountains one clear day when I was at Bald Peak Park.  At the time I did not have a good camera with which to photograph the scene, therefore I had to create the picture that you see here, but the original view was similar though not quite as clear.  However, it was so amazing as I did actually  see all five mountains!   I wish I would have had a camera that could have captured that experience.  Maybe someday…..:)

SUMMER Acrostic

Sunny days are here
Umbrellas now put away
Many take vacations
Mountains and beaches are visited
Evenings are often spent outdoors
Relatives gather at  family picnics
Time is made for outside activities
Indoors is not where most want to be
Music and laughter are all around
Everyone enjoys summertime

Happy First Day of Summer!  June 21, 2013
