This week’s photo challenge from DP is : Treasure.
Take a gander at the treasure trove they have amassed over at
As soon as I read the post I knew what picture I was digging for!
It’s not the country. It’s not the building. It’s not even the memory that was built on this day. It’s the message that forever changed my life that is plastered to the top of Amsterdam’s YWAM building. Jesus loves me. With that truth I have discovered you really can live on love!
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. MA 6:19-21 NIV

Here are some awesome arches from my archive!
This is the entrance to Old Murdock High School in Winchendon MA. My father and mother matriculated her.
Hey Ho! It’s been a bit since I have been able to visit the lingering lounge for anything other than lingering! 🙂 I’ve been able to peek at some of Dawn’s posts but contributing has been a bit out of my reach for the last few weeks…that and I haven’t been able to go out and photograph any new or interesting windows. But this week I was galumphing through my archive and I found this set of windows I thought would do…
I hope you enjoyed them. Check out more iof Dawn’s contributors at http://lingeringvisions.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/thursday-lingering-look-at-windows/
This week’s word for the week from ” A Word In Your Ear” is the word ORNATE.
Each week this fine lady plops open her dictionary and picks a word from the pages which land open. If you would like to discover more “ornate” posts go to http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/a-word-a-week-challenge-ornate-week-44/
Here are my pictorial thoughts on the word “ORNATE”.
All of these photos were taken on my first trip to Holland. They are inside St. Bavo’s Church in Haarlem.
Hey everyone! This week’s Fun Foto Challenge from Cee at :http://www.ceephotography.com/ is all about HOUSES!
I think houses are expressions of their inhabitants. A family’s emotional vapor sinks into wood and stone and shines out through the windows of the place it lives. We maybe can’t know everything about a person from their home but we can know something of them.
What does your house say?
This week’s travel theme by Ailsa at http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/08/09/travel-theme-architecture/ is architecture.
Now I am no architect. I have never been much of a builder. To be honest I can’t drive a nail straight to save my life. To wit, I am sure I can not truly appreciate the work that goes into our world’s architectural masterpieces.
Still I can appreciate artistry in stone, wood and steel as much as the next guy even without understanding the blood, sweat and tears that went into building it.
Of all the buildings I have seen in my life the Intel Hotel has to be the most catywhompus and interesting. Someday when I visit my sister in Holland we are going to rent out that big blue suite at the top right of the building just for kicks and giggles.
Well I totally missed week 29 and I think only two of my Monday …Tuesday….Wednesday and so on posts have landed on the right day in weeks. Ahh well! “Shoot for the moon and you might just make the sky.” I always say.

Oh-ho-ho this week’s word challenge from http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/a-word-a-week-challenge-castle/ is the word CASTLE!
Strangely my mind did not first go to the Royal Palace of Amsterdam which I visited last April
Instead I thought of chess!
In chess castling is-Making a special move in which the king is transferred from its original square two squares along the back rank toward the corner square…
That of course made me think of the giant chess sets I saw in The Netherlands.
Here are some other depictions of the word CASTLE:
This week’s word a week from http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/07/24/a-word-a-week-challenge-roof/ is the word ROOF.
Here are my thoughts!
Knowing that Your perfect grace has brought me to this place
Because of You I freely live, my life to You, oh God, I give
So I stand before You, God
I lift my voice cause You set me freeSo I shout out Your name, from the rooftops I proclaim
That I am Yours, I am Yours
All the good You’ve done for me, I lift up my hands for all to see
You’re the only one who brings me to my knees
To share this love across the earth, the beauty of Your holy worth
So I kneel before You, God
I lift my hands cause You set me free
So I shout out Your name, from the rooftops I proclaim
That I am Yours, I am Yours
All that I am, I place into Your loving hands
And I am Yours, I am Yours
Here I am, I stand, with arms wide open
To the One, the Son, the Everlasting God
Ben Williams, Jonathan Berlin, Lindsey Sweet
