Regarding Christianity

In responding to a friend's post on facebook, I said the following - it could be said in many different ways using different words and scenarios, but ultimately, this is what Christ calls us to do as we build the kingdom of God on earth:

"It is easy to go to a place of safety and refuge, a place of air conditioners and heaters, a place that is clean and free from all of the problems of the world.
The problem with that is that isn't what Jesus asked us to do. Jesus asked us to make a Kingdom of God on earth. He asked us to follow him - to the lepers, to the prostitutes, to the devil possessed, to the well to talk to people that no one else would talk to. 
Making a Kingdom of God on earth, making a heaven on earth, doesn't mean creating a place of beauty and cleanliness where only the 'worthy' may go, but by going to the very places that no one wants to go and take God with you to those people."

Squidward in a turban

Last night, this is what I saw going on in the Sponge Bob aquarium. 😃The nerite snail became his hat / turban.

Macro Fish Pics

It's been a long time since I've played with my macro lens. Tonight, I got it out and took pics of the fish.🙂It took a few tries, but I got a few in-focus pics. 

Pleco Dude - he lives in the Sponge Bob tank right now, but his home is in the 29 gallon tank eventually.

The peppered cories are some of my original fish from the original tank. 

The sunburst platy & two bar platy posed. I turned this pic into a cartoon -
Ashton commented that it already looks like a cartoon. 🙂

The sunburst platy really likes her pic taken, apparently. 🙂

My silver molly is so pretty. ♥

My golden inca snail is my fav! 

And a close up.

My dalmation molly lost her friend a couple of days ago. She hasn't quite been herself.

The two-bar platy was frozen by fear, I think. Meanwhile, the starburst platy is back in the pic.

This is my creamsicle molly. She is much prettier in person.

And, there are many more that wouldn't hold still. I guess they are for another day. 🙂
