Best shots of the week!

What is so amazing with sunrises and sunsets are they change their 
appearances everyday. They never fail to enchant me. So I keep capturing and marvelling of the beauty of God's creation. God's handpainting everyday!
And so with the words. They have beauty too and  inspires many. So hope you enjoy watching my skies and reading the quotes that goes with them.

                                          Secret of long life and prosperity

My son, do not forget my teaching, 
but keep my command in your heart,
for they will prolong your life with many years 
and bring you prosperity. Proverbs 3: 1-2

         Good reputation
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
 tie them around your neck, 
write them on the tablet of your heart. 
Then you will win favour and a good name
 in the sight of God and men. 
Proverbs 3: 3-4


Trust in the Lord with all your heart 
and lean not unto your own understanding,
in all your ways acknowledge him 
and he will make your paths straight.
 Proverbs 3: 5-6


Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones. Proverbs 3: 7-8

God's love

My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline
and do not resent his rebuke, 
because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in. Proverbs 3: 11-12

Freedom to express

Human beings the world over need freedom 
and security that they may be able to realize their full potential. - Aung San Suu Kyi

Work versus self

The most important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and taking one's self seriously. The first is imperative, and the second disastrous - Margaret Fontey

 Loyal criticism only

Though bitter, good medicine cures illness. Though it may hurt, loyal criticism will have beneficial effects. - Sima Qian 

Nobody gets everything they want

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get, but if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. - Conan O’Brien


Hope is the only good that is common to all men; those who have nothing else possess hope still. - Thales  


Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves. - U. Thant


Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, 
I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. - Mother Teresa

Wisdom and understanding
Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
the man who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
and yearns better returns than gold. 
Proverbs 3:13-14
Have a nice day friends.



  1. Best shots indeed! Love it's color combinations.. you know best when to get the perfect timing of the day for these lovely shots.. kahit pa winter hehe

    1. Thanks gracie. sa aabas lang kasi ng bahay ko ang sunrise. Puede din kuha from my bedroom window:) Pag gising ko before work at 8 ay may sunrise na at paguwi naman sunset. Dala ko lagi camera:)

  2. Sunset! Love it Mami Joy! Perfext combination sa mga quotes.

  3. Wow! Incredible photography of nature's gift go us ~ ^_^

  4. Beautiful, Joy... And your words are PERFECT for each photo. We have just returned home from Arkansas ---and we were lucky while there to experience both sunrises and sunsets... AWESOME... And you are so right: Everyday brings a whole new look to them!!!!! Thanks be to God.

  5. I truly enjoyed watching all your lovely pictures of nature.:)

  6. It was one Tuscan summer evening. I stayed outside, in the open fields to awaiting for sunrise. Totoo nga pala yung sinasabi nila that the darkest part of the night is that very brief moment before the first golden rays of the sun pierce through the dark velvet sky. It was a dreadful moment, but when dawn came, it overwhelmed me. It overcomes your heart- so glorious, beautiful and magnificent. To say that sunrise is beautiful is too simplistic. Many writers, philosophers, poets and artists were heavily influenced by sunrise. At para sa mga problemadong tao na katulad ko, sometimes we ought to look up in the sky. God made the earth, seas and skies. And all creations declare His Majesty, for everyone to know that God is greater that everything, problems or dreams or conspiracies for we are mere men.

    Sunsets inspire me. It’s like that golden bell with rubies clanging, sending a melodious chime that the day is about to end, the toiling and hard labour need to cease, the body must rest, the mind must be let to meditate, and the heart must be let to cherish the memories and the hearth of the home. The problem with us is we never allow ourselves to stop and look at the sunset, at God’s wonderful and amazing fabrication.

    The quotes from the Bible are very inspiring. I really can’t understand atheists saying that such book is worthless. I’m not the holiest man in this planet, but despite by flaws, sinful desires, and not so good deeds, I still uphold the Bible’s importance in my life.

    Anyway, I like your pictures Mommy Joy. Are you a photographer?

    1. Very touched naman ako sa comment mo mr tripster. So much wisfom in your words. It is always a joy reading your comments.
      As for your question. No I am not a photograher. Just point and shoot. I am just lucky that I have these views when I woke up in the morning. And God's creation really amazes me:)
      Have a great week dear.

  16. I always love sunrise shots. It reminds me na laging may bagong umaga for us, for us sa pagbabago, pagtatama ng mga kamalian at another day to be happy. Also, sunset reminds me na kailangan nating magpahinga at makasama ang ating mga mahal sa buhay. :) Salamat sa iyong pagshare ng mga Bible quotes. :)

  17. You are quite lucky ate Joy, 'cause you get to witness two of the most amazing miracles of nature. I am a late riser so I don't get to witness the sunrise. I'm in the office by the time the sun sets so I don't get to see it too. Those are amazing pictures as always. You live in such a beautiful place.

  23. Beautiful shots and a wonderful display of God's early morning art. He paints the sky splendid where you are, Joy. I like to imagine myself staring at that canvass with you and be stilled by His power and His craft. I could just grasp at His magnificence. The whole earth shouts with it.

    "All that has breath, praise the Lord!

    Thanks for sharing and I wish you well always.

  24. Such beauty in your photographs. Points to the Great Creator. Nobody can paint a sky like Him.
