Photo Challenge, Day 1

A couple days ago, Bri the Missionary in the Making challenged me to join her in a photo challenge that she found on Blogger.  As soon as she said my name and photo in the same post, I was in! 😀  Today’s prompt word is Intricate, so I immediately thought of nature (which I almost capitalized… thanks a lot, Gabriel 🙂 ). My first subpoint on that outline was spiderwebs, but as it was already mid-day when I found out the prompt, all webs had disappeared.  I had just finished reading a book about a family of French weavers, and it had me thinking.  If we found a piece of cloth on the ground, we wouldn’t assume it was just a pile of yarn that had miraculously tangled itself just so as to be a sturdy textile, would we?  No, of course not.  In Florida was have these giant stalks of grass incorrectly called Palm Trees.  No, I’m not making this up.  Go Google it.  I’ll wait.  OK, now that you’re back (or are a Floridian and knew it already), let’s continue.  These tall stalks are very fibrous. Each layer has been woven together to create its tough exterior.  Yet, most people you talk to on the street will say that it is just a well-evolved plant. Hm, I’m not sure I see that logic.  So, today, I decided to highlight the intricate weaving of the palm trees that God so perfectly designed.  The sunburst was a nice bonus too. 🙂


Now, unfortunately, there are some, *gasp* rules.

RULE ONE: The photo has to be taken on the day of the post, i.e. you can`t use old pictures. (This is the hardest rule for me, because I’m the kind of person that if, by a rare chance, I do upload my pics to my laptop on the same day I take them, I put off editing and sorting them for weeks.  So, this is a good disciplinary challenge too. 🙂 )

RULE TWO: No Plagiarism. Must be your pic and yours alone.

RULE THREE: You must follow the five prompts that I`ll be posting my along with my pictures, unless, you know, you find another photo challenge prompt site and decide to do theirs instead. *dramatic lonely sigh*

Alright, now for my nominee.  *drumroooooool*


I’ve seen what you can do on Flickr, so I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with for this challenge! (If you accept, of course. 🙂 )


P.S. Did anyone catch 6+10=16? I was wondering if I had gotten anyone trained yet, so I didn’t do a post.

  1. I have to think before I write the word ‘nature’ now too. 🙂
    Your photograph is very nice, and I never thought of palms in that light before (in the context of apologetics, but I’m all for increasing my arsenal to use for the convincing of unbelievers and the answering of critics). As a note, some Christians believe that nature is ‘the 67th book of the Bible’. They use that reasoning to support their belief in evolution, saying that is what God is telling us through nature. Their reasoning is faulty, however, because they seem to forget that nature is under the curse of sin. That makes it imperfect. The Bible, on the other hand, is divinely inspired, and it contradicts evolutionary thought.

  2. Cool! Love how you tied Creation in with this pic, Squid! (btw…have you ever heard of Creation Miniseries…they have a magazine that my family gets, and the other day we went to a lecture by one of their speakers. Very good!) Anyway, back on subject…. Thanks for inviting me to the challenge! 😀 I hope to join soon! I’ve made a rule of Cherry Tree Poet being “text only”. But I will break that rule for you. It’s always good to have a change. 🙂

    P.S. Yes! I actually thought of the 6 + 10 = 16! You have been training me, though I’m still not as good at spotting them as you are.

    Hope you’re having a great week!

    1. Thanks! I think I have heard of them, but I’ve supported Answers in Genesis for a while now, so I haven’t looked at many other ministries like it, haha. Aww, yay! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
      Yay!!! I have trained you well, young grasshopper. 🙂
      Yes, my week has been very good, thank you, and I hope yours has been as well!

      1. We’ve been well, thanks.
        Enjoying our summer break also: a less hectic morning schedule since we don’t have to rush to get her to school by 8 am.

        Always love when you stop by. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Hugs 🌷
