Juxtaposition (jŭkˌstə-pə-zĭshˈən)

I hope I can repeat after Paul (from Philippians 4:11) "...for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." 

Our daughter's place - where we'll be in 4 weeks:

Where we currently are:


Linda said...

Both are lovely photos, Rick, but I bet it will be nice to see another side of things for a while. Thanks so much for sharing the beauty around you.

Amelia said...

Hi Rick, how you doing? First of all, your header picture is very spectacular. Are you currently holidaying there to escape the winter? :))

Both the pictures are very spectacular, each got it's own beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Have a great week ahead,regards.

Bob Bushell said...

Lovely, I prefer the second one, the first is freezing brrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Kirsti said...

Kauniita kuvia molemmat. Meillä suomessa on talvi, niin pidän enemmän toinen kuva missä palmut ja lämmin :)

Hilde said...

hi Rick!
Fijn nog eens iets van jou te horen. Je zal bij jouw dochter zeker Nieuwjaar onder de sneeuw gaan vieren.
vele groetjes uit België!

biebkriebels said...

Dat is wel een verschil, vergeet niet wat wat warme kleding mee te nemen!

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh boy! That's quite a change of temperature. I'm sure the warmth of your daughter's home will make up for all the snow. Enjoy.

Bethany Carson said...

Haha! I think you need that Bible verse! Stay warm!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Alas, I have always had the ability to adapt to any situation I find myself in, but I am far from content far too often. Yeah, I know, which goes far beyond merely believing, that our Heavenly Father's grace is sufficient, but I really hate testing His patience.

Ruth Hiebert said...

HMMMMM! Seriously,that would be a hard choice for me. The green grass and all look very nice and I wouldn't mind being there for a week or two,but I really do LOVE the snow.Have a good time wherever you are.

darlin said...

Rick I'm a wee bit envious of where you are, the photos you've posted make me want to run away and find me some sunshine, escape the winter blahs and it's not even that cold out yet. Sure we've had some cold days, but the worst is yet to come.

I love the photos, one day I sure hope to have the time to learn more what to do with this camera, I've upgraded to the T5i and still learning what to do with it. I believe I'll always be learning what to do with any camera I purchase. Photography has endless possibilities and you're sure mastering many of these possibilities.

Well back to the paper writing, last one of this year finally! Great to revisit here. Have a blessed and wonderful week, cheers.

Family is a powerful draw!

Stephanie said...

Both are wonderful shot, however, I would prefer to be in image #2.

Marja said...

wow that will be a huge temperature drop Nice pictures. Hope they keep the roads clean for you. Hier in NZ zijn de wegen onbegaanbaar als het sneeuwt

papillon said...

Winter and summer are nice, but the heat on the bottom photo can be felt ... and can also awake dreams.

Connie Smiley said...

Ah, beauty in both, Rick, but where you are now looks pretty nice!

Lisa Gordon said...

Oh my goodness, what a difference, Rick!
I love both of these.
I wish you a wonderful week, my friend!

S. Etole said...

Wherever you are the Lord is with you. Blessings as you travel and spend time with your daughter.

Joke (Joke's Camera) said...

Mooi, Rick. Ook de tekst. Ik hou wel van een beetje sneeuw. Niet te lang, maar het geeft het landschap een vredige, rustgevende uitstraling. Groetjes, Joke.

Helma said...

Halo Rick,
beide foto's zijn heel mooi. Ik hou van sneeuw en dan het liefst met een blauwe lucht en een zonnetje hihi.... Je andere foto van de zon en palmbomen is ook heerlijk. Op beide locaties zou ik wel even willen zijn.

Groetjes Helma

MARTY said...

Scott said...

We need some of that snow here in Utah. But I'd like to spend Christmas in the second photo.

Magia da Inês said...

Fotos tão lindas!!!
Quanto contraste entre calor e frio!..

Boa semana!
Beijinhos do Brasil。♫° ·.

Teca M. Jorge said...

Wonderful contrasts, honey!
By the way, the atmosphere is changed here... every day better!
Loved your new header and profile pictures.
Sweet beijos, flowers, love and friendship.

Kleine Waldameise said...

Wow, was für ein Kontrast. Wobei ich sagen muss, dass ich beide Szenen mag. Die dick verschneite Landschaft jetzt in der Vorweihnachtszeit. Und die herrlich sonnige Aufnahme, die die Sehnsucht nach Sommer weckt.

Liebe Grüße

Both pictures are beautiful. I miss snow, so much! I love to play there :)
Hope you are ok!
