Colorful Barns

There are two old barns in our area that I always wanted to stop and take a few pictures of them. The snow gave me the reason. 





During the cold and rainy times of your life, God has shown Himself to be a safe warm, dry shelter. So you can trust Him now for whatever you need.
In His strong tower, you are removed from the enemy’s battle below. You are protected from attack, safe from harm. Peter Wallace
You are a strong tower, where I am safe from my enemies. Ps. 61:3

  4. The drive from my house to my sisters is about 90 miles. Mostly through farm land. Sometimes the barns are the only color on the horizon...and a sight for sore eyes. These are beautiful.

  5. I love your photos. I also love old barns - plan to take a series of photos of some soon. In a visit to Tennessee several years ago, I was impressed by many of the old barns we saw.

    Love your blog header, also.

    Blessings,

  9. Hello! First time visitor to your blog - I found you via Spiritual Sundays! I just started reading a book called "The Shelter of God's Promises" and your scripture selection goes perfectly with the theme of the book! Love the barn photos - I've never seen a green barn before!

    Have a wonderful day!

  12. I’ve been memorizing Psalm 91 lately: “His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” There is such “strong” imagery in Psalms: refuge; fortress; etc. Thanks for sharing this one, Brenda. He is our strong tower!

  17. I love the pictures of the barns. They look especially beautiful in the snow. I traveled with my mother across the United States a couple of years ago and we took pictures of old barns all the way. They have a special meaning to me. I like the way you related them to being a safe place...like God being our strong tower. Thank you for sharing this.

  18. How beautiful the barns are! humble but beautiful - a suggestion of self sufficiency and comfort all in that one place I think. In the UK people buy barns up and convert them into houses!
