What Is She Doing? 她在做什麼?

I think she is showing off her catching skill in front of my camera.

我想她是在照相機前作取食特技表演。可惜現場祇有一位觀眾。

Ill or health, rain or shine,
I will not be afraid for you are with me.

圓缺隂晴, 蒙汝伴隨;

我所言所行榮耀神, 人因我受益了嗎?

I saw bees fly, stop on flowers for nectar. This was the first time I saw a bee swim.

看過蜜蜂飛, 停歇花間採甜汁。這是我第一次看到蜜蜂在桶中游水。

I chased those ants away. When I checked back later, it was not there.

I hoped this little friend would be all right.

我將那幾隻螞蟻趕走。回頭再去看, 它已經不在了。

但願這隻小朋友無事。

A Conversation With My Neighbor 與厝邊話仙

My curious neighbor came over to talk to me while I was taking pictures in our front yard.
"Hi, Tea! What are you doing?"
"How are you? Andy! I am taking pictures for my blog."
"You have a blog?"
"Yes, I have a web blog - Sirtea Garden on the internet. You are invited to visit my blog. There are some interesting articles and pictures in it." (Ha! This is a good opportunity to promote my blog!)
"Sure. I will visit your blog. Bye!"
"Please pray for bloggers' prayer requests too. Bye!"

我的鄰居看到我在前院拍照, 好奇地走過來看看。
「喂, Tea! 你在拍什麼?」
「Andy, 你好! 我在拍照片放在我的部落格。」
「你有部落格?」
「是的, 我在網上有一個部落格- 茶翁家園。歡迎你上網看看。有一些不錯的文章和照片可看呢。」(哈! 把握機會廣告廣告。)
「好啊! 會上網去看。再見!」
「請你也爲那些請代禱的事項禱告噢。 再見!」

Meditation and Prayer 省身及禱告

Walking with camera in my hands, I thank God for His wonderful creation, His loving care and His providence. I prayed that God bless Taiwan, comfort and heal those 090808 water disaster Taiwanese; for Ms. Pan's fully recovery; for blessing to Sister Hung's work and study that she would have time to participate in church activities; for myself, my family, my friends, and ....
Pray that His will be done. Praise be to God!

手拿着照相機, 邊走邊禱告: 感謝上帝創造這麼美麗的大自然, 祂不變且不休止的愛以及𧶽予我們所需。祈求上帝保佑臺灣, 安慰療傷那些88 水災的臺灣災民; 求上帝醫治潘師母身體康復; 求上帝祝福洪姊妹的工作及學業, 讓她能抽出時間參加教會的聚會; 爲我自己, 我的家人, 朋友們,... 求上帝眷顧。 並願祂的旨意得成。感謝上帝。讚美上帝!

Walking Exercise 散步運動

Kent & Grace emailed me: "... I suggest you can try walking at least 1 hour everyday. Kent plays golf about 1 hour in the early morning 4 days a week...."
Good advice! With camera in my hands, I walked and took pictures. Here are some of the pictures I took and edited this morning. (*Shhhh!!! I already did walking everyday except rainy days.)
Kent 和 Grace 寄來的伊美兒(email)說: 「... 我建議你每天最少散步走1小時。Kent 一週4天一大早就去打1 小時的高爾夫球。...」
好建議! 我手拿着照相機, 一邊走一邊拍照。這是我今天早上所拍攝組合的一部份照片。(*噓!!! 其實我每天都已在走路運動了。)
Poison Mushrooms. 毒蕈菇。
A Baby Turtle Shell. 一個小龜殼。
A Dragonfly. 一隻蜻蜓。
Jade Plants. 玉碧花。
