O be careful little hands...

We are not built for ourselves, but for God.
Not for service for God, but for God.
-Oswald Chambers

"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

What a neat picture? How did you do it? Whose hands are they?

Bethany,
Did you used to live on a farm?

Hey Megan! The picture is one I took while at the Henry Doorly Zoo here in Nebraska. The guys were all looking at the huge jelly fish tank (that had a blue light shining in) so that the jelly fish could be seen. The effect of their hands through the tank was so cool -- so I snapped a picture! I don't remember whose hands they were...Josiah's, Andrew's, and Matthias' maybe?!

And yes -- when I was 5 our family moved to an acreage, and lived there until I was 12 when our family moved to where we are now. It was so special, and I miss it at times!

What a COOL picture! I LOVE the effects :). That tank is really a neat thing, isn't it? It's almost hypnotizing. :)

I really appreciated that quote. It's sometimes hard to keep the focus of our purpose in life, but it's not about us or our service... it's about HIM.

Thanks for the encouragement, sweet Bethany!!

(((hugs)))

Bethany,

What a NEAT picture, and what a creative way to tie it into the quote and Bible verse. It definitely grabbed my attention when I saw it!

I was going to ask how you did it...but when you wait this long to comment you have your answer!:) I did wonder if it had anything to do with the zoo?!

Love you, and thanks for the encouragement!
