Numbers

When I first read the subject for our next Brenda Photo Challenge Numbers, I thought, well, numbers and I have never been best friends, but I'll try and get creative with it because of how much my good friend and hostess for this photo challenge Karen M @ LovedandEngraved loves them. She really does. She gets excited about them! When I started thinking about how numbers are really just symbols and tools that allow us to do so many things in our lives I developed a new respect for them.





I'll bet you know what time it is even though the long hand is pointing to the Great Horned Owl and the short hand is pointing to the Belted Kingfisher. Even birds can be Numbers.



There are even Numbers in the Bible!









I love the Numbers on my Nikon cameras, the f stops and shutter speeds, that allow me to capture beauty on film. I was going to include my digital camera in this grouping but, well, I started to set it down with these two but then I couldn't take the picture. Seriously. . .


We measure love by numbers. . . more than all the grains of sand on all the beaches, more than all the stars in the sky, more than all the leaves on all the trees. Thank you Karen for choosing Numbers for this Photo Challenge, I think I'm starting to love them too!


Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.


Matthew 10:29-31

Love the photos and the thoughts. Your writing is lovely. Something about it slows my mind down and calms it so I can more fully absorb the meaning. so peaceful.

The nikons! How true... never thought of it! LOL!

Oh, Karen, I loved your post!!

Your pictures were great, but your words and the scripture passage were even better.

Thank you for your friendship and your inspiration. You always challenge me to think deeper.

great photos and I love the scripture you shared...I had to laugh at the camera incident...just the other day my daughter and I pulled into the driveway from a day of shopping and she asked, "Did Erik take the Tahoe somewhere?"....and I chuckled out a response..."No...we're in it." We laughed and laughed...thanks for sharing all of your creative ideas with this photo challenge...all of your pics are terrific!

have a beautiful day ~

Great thoughts and I really liked your pictures! I think we may have the same camera (the Nikon on the right in your photo). The difference is, I still have no real idea how to use mine. LOL

Good job! Got a chuckle about your thought to include the digital camera in the grouping with the film cameras! LOL! Sounds like something I would do.

Love the bird clock! I've never seen one quite like it, and the cameras were a great idea. Numbers, of course, is a perfect choice.

Such a lovely way to display your pictures!

Great photos. Clocks are a popular theme - just goes to show how much time rules our lives. We need to make each moment count.
