It was a huge energy, a wonderful time of being unique. It was night when the American saw the full eclipse and I miss it.
سالها از خورشید گرفتگی کامل در ایران و اصفهان میگذره. من در اون زمان با دوستی از مرکز نجوم اصفهان صمیمی بودم و یادمه از رفتن و عکاسی دوستم چقدر ذوق زده بودم . بابا صفحۂ شیشه ای تیره و سبز رنگ برام اورده بود که مستقیم به خورشید نگاه نکنم. دوربین شکاری اون موقع برام حکم قوی ترین تلسکوپ را داشت در دست هام، و یک دوربین زنیت روسی که اسباب بازی من شده بود چون دایی جان دوربین راحت و آماده دوست میداشت که فقط با یک کلیک عکس را درست بگیرد... نه اینکه از یک حلقه ۳۶ تایی عکس، فقط ده دوازده تا عکس خوب در بیاورد. روزگار خوشی بوده است و اکنون فقط خاطره ای و عکسی باقی است، دیگر اما نه حتی صدایی از او باقی مانده، مثل خورشید گرفتگی همان سال که تا بخواهی عکس هست و خاطره ها و یاد ها، اما آن شیرینی و شیوایی خسوفی که کامل بود در همانجا دیگر نیست. و خسوف هر بار در یکجا باز اتفاق می افتد، اما از آدمیزاد، آنکه رفته دیگر بازگشتی را به امید نمی توان نشست.
Two of the passages of scripture in my devos this morning. There's going to be something in our lives that drives us to maybe react in worry or fear, but that's when our faith & trust in the One who made us needs to silence the fear and anxiety. We can trust that He keeps His Word. He will strengthen us, help us, and uphold us! And whatever troubles you or is trying to overwhelm you, we need cast it all upon Him! Don't forget what the LORD Almighty has told us! #Jesus#God#HolySpirit#fightfear#trust#faith#HeIsFaithful#Promise#devos#laydownyourburdens
Good Morning to BEING CONFIDENT OF WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST JESUS WEDNESDAY☕⛅🌈😇🌹💕 🌹Please read: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4🌹
Salvation fills Christians with joy, but the devil tries to diminish its effect by sowing doubt and confusion. One of Satan’s purposes in doing so is to make your faith unattractive to others. Confidence about your salvation is essential to counteracting the enemy’s tactics—and it involves a what, a who, and a how (Galatians 2:19~21)🌹 🌹First, you need to understand what salvation means. Though physically alive, elect are born spiritually dead—in other words, separated from the Father and lost in sin (Ephesians 2:11~22)🌹 According to John 3:1~21, the only way to see the kingdom of God is to be “born again.”🌹 🌹Second, you must understand through whom this new life comes. Jesus shed His blood on the cross to pay the sin debt man owed (Romans 6:15~23)🌹 Christ's substitutionary atoning death provided forgiveness of sins for the chosen (Acts 10:43~48), and His resurrection is proof that He conquered death. When you trust and obey the Savior, your sins are forgiven and you cross over from death to life (John 5:16~30)🌹 🌹Third, you must know how to live in a God-pleasing way. This is impossible in human strength. That’s why God sends His Spirit to permanently indwell elect as faith is placed in Jesus (Romans 8:1~17)🌹 As the Holy Spirit is in control, He’ll guide you into all truth (John 16:12~15) and empower you to achieve whatever God calls you to do🌹 🌹Sin separated mankind from God, and you were spiritually dead. Jesus is the way to eternal life (John 14:6~7), and the Holy Spirit provides the divine power and guidance to live righteously. What blessed assurance!🌹 🌹Please read today's PROVERBS: Chapter 23🌹

ROSES FOR YOU WOMEN'S MINISTRIES. ISAIAH 61:1-3
I love this action shot of @ellen.lacuenta and me! Sometimes you have to go back to the basics to progress. Going back to tempo work really improved my cascade. Practicing tempos is really the way to improve dynamic trick!
Our answers from God are not always what we expect. Sometimes we are blind sighted and things come up to the surface. Thank God for Holy Spirit, I am able to embrace situations and know I am good. Grateful because as I pay close attention...God has been showing me, guiding me, and giving me a heads up. He's such a faithful and loving Father who protects. These past few days, He reminded me and literally held my right hand, He sent someone to remind me of His purpose for me, and that I am fully armored and equipped to move forward. See...as a child of God, you have promises that are yours, regardless, of what you are facing or may have gone through. The Lord brought to mind this picture/post I shared almost 2 yrs. ago. I can say with confidence compared to then, that I know who I am and whose I am - powerful and untouchable - because of my Lord, Jesus Christ. #removedistractions#lightovercomesdarkness#exposed#uproot#planted#covered#Godspromise#kingdomadvancement#powerful#untouchable#focused#hellNO ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~11/25/15: We must all experience a season of testing from God, especially if He is calling you into a purpose. God will allow you to be put in circumstances and situations that seem impossible. During these seasons, we may feel different emotions of perhaps fear, doubt, frustration, confusion, anger - or we may even lose ourselves and want to give up on life. The most beautiful thing about being broken is that God gives us desires in our hearts to seek Him with all that we have, all that we are. When we choose to surrender and give everything up to Him and trust Him...He will divinely turn things around completely and open doors of blessings we would have never thought imaginable. We come to find out who we really are, and who He has wonderfully and fearfully created us to be. God already knew the storms of emotions we would be going through. What He is concerned about is our hearts and our faith in Him. Stand firm through the different seasons. God is faithful, He is endless love, full of mercy, grace, and hope! #seasons#testoffaith#trials#tribulations#perserverance#faith#redeemed#trust#obedience#psalm139#jeremiah29#jeremiah33
Today marks 2 years since my husband has been in heaven😭💔. @peteroc20 It's unreal to think we've lived 2 years without him. There are no words to describe how deeply he is missed. My heart longs to hear his voice, see his smiling face, hold his hand, and receive his suffocating bear hugs 😢. Making new memories without him is so hard. He is always on our mind and the kids and I always talk about him❤️😇 Grief is the hardest journey I've ever experienced, full of pain and suffering. But even in our darkest moments God has never shined brighter in our lives. God is forever our healer, our redeemer, our comforter, and our source of strength. The good news is we know where Peter is. He's not in the ground he's in Heaven!! He excepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior and now has eternal life. We will see him again!! Until that day comes I will honor and praise God in all that I do. God is good no matter what! I'm truly grateful for all the blessings God has brought into our lives and continues to bring. He is taking care of our family until we join Peter in Heaven! ❤️❤️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼💪🏽💪🏽 “But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress. O my Strength, to you I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love.”
"Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." John 13:7
As an acro instructor, my goal is always to equip my students with the knowledge and ability to not only perform a skill, but to teach others to, as well. But there is often a precursor to that mastery which requires the student to trust me as they carry out instructions with little understanding of what they are doing. Some do this with ease and progress quickly. For others, the need to comprehend inhibits their progress as they try to control something they don't really have precedence for.
This scripture is just too real for me. Christ calls us to trust Him, though our present circumstances seem bizarre or hard to wrap our minds around. We pour through a lifetime of wisdom and failures and observations and successes, seeking an understanding, but ultimately fall short. This is new territory, unexplored terrain. Surrender is required, trust is mandatory. It might even hurt! Some of us will dive in immediately and start to see the bigger picture. Most of us will struggle and argue, wanting comprehension before offering obedience. Be the one who trusts. You will NEVER be disappointed.
Whether its in the mess of wading through what needs to leave your life, at a cross roads, on the edge of a big break through or the middle of one of your greatest adventures - it is all exactly as it should be.✨
Trust the process! 🙏🏽 The only things that's constant.. is change, so let go & ride the wave! x 📷 @thesaltysouls
