Spot Metering


Sponges at Tarpon Springs, FL hang to dry out on this boat. (I am still playing with the functions on my camera. Metering is a fancy word for measuring the light that will be in your picture. Hey, took me a while to figure that out, even with help.) It was a cloudy day so I focused my camera (using the * button) on the lightness of these long sponges.  Too much light, wrong spot to focus.

Here I focused on the darker sponges and it made a better colored picture.

I overheard a conversation where two were discussing the Bible. One said it was a book that you could either take as a history of people, or like some do, a religious thing. That person also said that it's a fun thing to study for learning cultures of people. The second one responded, I like to read it, but it's so confusing. This reply sounded so disappointed.

Is the Bible just a book no matter how you "spot" it?

"Everything was created through him; (Jesus) nothing-not one thing!-came into being without him. What came into existence was Life, and the Life was Light to live by. The Life-Light is the real thing; every person entering Life he bring into Light." John 1:3-4, 9 (MS) parenthesis mine-

No, when my life is spot metered through the Lord, His light will shine even in darkness. Meter my days on You, Father.

Don't you just want to chime in when people have those kinds of discussions? sigh

Oh..the pic at the top? The things on the bottom looked like chicken feet to me! LOL

I wonder if the Lord allows us to hear these so we can pray for those people's eyes to be opened to the truth.

Excellent post, as always!

Parsley, that's funny, they do look like chicken feet. Yes, I wanted to, but I was at work.

Jeanette, you are absolutely right. Even if I don't know the names, He does.
