Banyan tree


The material for this post was shared by my dad during a family trip to India 10 years ago :)

Banyan trees have special significance in Asian countries.

Vines drop down from branches and join and grow into the trunk, thereby enlarging the tree.

This results in a sturdy tree with thick roots.

This tree is significant because of the importance of family in Eastern cultures.

As children grow up, marry, and have children, they’re not just starting new homes, but enlarging the family. Staying connected.

Animals in their natural habitats


Here’s a post I did on a visit to the Natural History Museum a few weeks back. It was so neat to see the animals as they lived with no human interference. Just them in the places God provided for them.

This Is Our Father’s World

A trip to the Natural History Museum!

What I liked best was the dioramas, with realistic life-sized animals before a painted background of their habitat. These are North American Mammals.

I’m making “quote pictures,” with quotes from books on stills from movies, or other photos. (I don’t own the rights to any of these movies, I’m just doing these for fun!) I’ve been having a blast making them, and I’ll be posting them here on my blog. Enjoy!
