I love to be outside.
I love the Lord’s creation.
I love to take pictures to capture His glories.
When I am inside a car, I still want to take pictures.
I don’t want the glass and the moving vehicle
to come between my camera and the view I am experiencing.
I just don’t see creation, I feel it, I hear it.
You see, Creation preaches a message.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities
—his eternal power and divine nature—
have been clearly seen,
being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse.
As I watch each the scenery unfolding at a rapid pace through the finger-printed windows,
and I am hearing His voice,
I always want to capture something of the experience.
So, I shoot through the window glass.
Usually, I shoot through my side.
Other times, I might quickly say to my husband,
Isn’t he nice?
Someday, he wants to blog about what it’s like to be married to a blogger.
I’ve been keeping files of my favorite “Through The Window Pictures.”

On the way to Montana last fall.
Can you see why Montana is called The Big Sky?
It is NOT Photoshopped.
No, he didn’t duck. I was driving.
Don’t try this at home.
I’m an experienced non-professional.
It is my favorite shot from the whole year.
These rocks remind me of a Creation Scientist
I heard from the Institute of Creation Research.
He talked about the upheaval in the earth’s crust because of the Flood.
Here, the earth’s layers have been twisted vertically.
I always love to imagine what is around the corner.
A curve in the road,
a bend in a creek,
are both enticing,
making me wonder what’s ahead.
In anticipation, I keep my camera ready.
Another moment captured.
Through the glass.
I’m listening, Lord.
Thank you so much for your encouragement, bloggy friends. Debbie, that verse is the perfect exclamation point for my post. Thanks for sharing!
Wow! Wow! You have captured some really special picstures, Mindy. Thanks. and thank you for sharing your thoughts. God has blessed us with so much beauty.
Love the pictures. That is so true about life. To think that we only see as through a glass now and in the future we will see Him face to face clearly. Just to gaze upon His beautiful creations is amazing. How much more beautiful to gaze upon His face when we see Him face to face.

You are inspiring me to take more pictures…take it all in, what a wonderful creation God has blessed us with. (Loved the comment about how your husband wants to write a blog about life with a blogger!!! Too funny!)
