Why buy Dad another tie for Father’s Day when you can give him a one-of-a-kind Christian Father’s Day Gift that will never be forgotten?

Scripture Pictures introduces its newest Christian Father’s Day Gift of a powerful tiger photo holding an olive branch.

This poignant Scripture Pictures photo of a tiger portrays the power, fearlessness and protection of a Godly man. The olive branch symbolizes a man’s wisdom, dignity, and gentleness.

This Scripture Pictures photo is a keepsake gift for Father’s Day or any special occasion where you want to honor a dad, grandfather, husband, brother or pastor.

It is also a wonderful gift for the many “spiritual fathers” who mentor us.

The scripture on the tiger photo is from Proverbs 10:9, and the title of the photo is called:

To A True Man of God

The man of integrity walks securely but he who takes crooked paths will be found out. Proverbs 10:9

Looking for an Easter gift for a Christian friend?

Do you want an Easter gift that will minister for generations to come?

In our Special Occasions section, we have a colorful flower photo in the “Friendship” category.

It is called, “I Thank God That You are My Friend!” It is based on Proverbs 17:17: “A friend loves at all times. A friend is there to help when troubles come.”

For many of we women, our girlfriends feel more like sisters. Here is a poem about that describes this very feeling. It is called, Sisters:

This is to all of my “Sisters”.

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting with her mother. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood, the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter.

“Don’t forget your Sisters,” she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass. “They’ll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you may have, you are still going to need sisters. Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them.”

“Remember that ‘Sisters’ means ALL the women… your girlfriends, your daughters, and all your other women relatives too. “You’ll need other women. Women always do.”

What a funny piece of advice! the young woman thought. Haven’t I just gotten married? Haven’t I just joined the couple-world? I’m now a married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup! Surely my husband and the family we may start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile!

But she listened to her Mother. She kept contact with her Sisters and made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her life.

After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I’ve learned: THIS SAYS IT ALL:

Time passes.

Life happens.

Distance separates.

Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.

Love waxes and wanes.

Men don’t do what they’re supposed to do.

Hearts break.

Parents die.

Colleagues forget favors.

Careers end.

BUT………

Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.

A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach.

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley’s rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley’s end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you. Or come in and carry you out.

Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, others, grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn’t be the same without women, and neither would I.

When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other.

Every day, we need each other still.

Pass this on to all the women who help make your life meaningful.

I just did!

Have a peace filled day.

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti, and the Scripture Pictures Team

Christian Sex Addiction ScripturePictures

How can you tell if you –  or a loved one – is becoming addicted to sex or pornography?

Dr. Patrick Carnes, an expert in love and sex addiction, has identified  four key questions to help people discover if they have a sexual addiction:

1. Is Your Behavior a Secret?

Are you doing behaviors that you hide from others? Do you fear that if your family and friends knew what you were doing, they would reject you? Are you lying to cover up your actions? If so, you are isolating yourself from family and friends and forming a potentially addictive relationship.

2. Is Your Behavior Abusive?

Is your sexual behavior degrading or exploitative of others? Do you find yourself performing increasingly abusive acts? Do you get pleasure from watching others being abused?

3. Is Your Behavior Used to Self-medicate Painful Feelings?

Do you use sex to change your mood? Do you act out sexually when you’re depressed, bored, or angry? 

4. Is Your Behavior Empty of Genuine Commitment and Caring?

Are you substituting the illusion of intimacy for the genuine intimacy found in a healthy relationship?

The Scripture Pictures Team has felt a special anointing to reach out to people struggling with sex addiction. Please don’t suffer in silence. Reach out for help today from your pastors and Christian friends.

In Christ’s Love,

Patti, Henry, and the Scripture Pictures Team

Here is a Scripture Pictures photo called “You Were Bought at a Price” from our Sexual Integrity section. The scripture is from 1 Corinthians 6:19-20: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. You were bought at a high price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.”

Christmas Eve: Scripture Pictures

DSC_1436 Christmas EveChristmas Eve: Scripture Pictures

Henry and I have a family tradition of attending the 11 PM candlelight service on Christmas Eve.

We love to welcome the first light of Christmas morning by being at church on Christmas Eve.

 

What do I like most about the Christmas Eve candlelight service? I love the…

  • warm, cozy glow of the candles
  • rows of bright red poinsettias
  • decorated wreaths made from pine
  • receiving communion from the pastors
  • hearing the choir sing Christmas carols
  • listening to the pastor’s wisdom
  • hugging everybody in church

But most of all, Henry and I love celebrating the birthday of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

“Behold, the virgin shall become pregnant and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel – which, when translated, means, God with us.” (Matthew 1:23, AMP)

This verse reminds me that God is always with us – even when we feel far from Him.

In Christ’s Love from Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry & the Scripture Pictures Team

P.S. Here is a photo of the ending of our Christmas Eve service, just a few minutes into Christmas morning. If you look carefully, you can see people carrying their candles as they leave the church. (Please click on image for larger view.)

Merry Christmas from the Scripture Pictures Team.

Homeless @ Christmas: Scripture Pictures

Homeless @ Christmas: Scripture Pictures 

Patti and I were part of a team yesterday from our church serving Christmas dinner to over 100 people who are homeless. Patti made a ham with her secret ingredient – peach nectar – and a green bean casserole.

The pain of these dear people that we served yesterday was so evident. Most of them had severe mental illness that triggered their homelessness. As I served the food on their plates,  I noticed that almost every person would focus intently on the food – they’d watch it go from the platter to their paper plate, as if they rarely saw food. And then I remembered that they probably rarely saw freshly cooked food, as they “ate” what scraps they could find from garbage cans.

“What you’ve done unto the least of these you’ve done unto Me.”

Ever shown up at the right place but at the wrong time?

Patti did when she took our Pomeranian, Buffy, to have her photo taken with Santa at the local mall on the wrong weekend!

(For more on Buffy, see our blog, “The Dog Who Captured Your Heart: Scripture.Pictures”).

But Patti was determined to get a photo, as Buffy was very old and sick.

So, Patti and Buffy sheepishly stood in a long line with a mass of children and their parents to see Santa. People stared as if to say, “Did you forget your child???”

Although Santa was not supposed to allow photos with pets that day, he graciously made an exception for Buffy. As you can tell in the photo, they instantly bonded.

Sadly, this was Buffy’s last Christmas with us. Our fluffy bundle of joy peacefully passed away shortly after Christmas.

The Team at Scripture Pictures invites you to send us your pet stories.

In Christ’s Love at Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry

What does malaria, dengue fever, typhoid, and cannibalism have in common?

Papua New Guinea.

Traveling here is a cautionary tale. Little tourism infrastructure and limited travel information is available. It is one of the world’s least explored countries. It’s theorized that many undiscovered species of plants and animals exist in the interior.

There is dense greenery in the swampland and rain forests. The midsection is ruggedly mountainous.

Rural villagers live in mud huts with thatched roofs. They combine Western clothes with traditional garb, e.g., loin clothes adorned with bird-of-paradise feathers and pigs’ tails, pierced noses with animal bones, and elaborate wigs for men with human hair.

Smearing one’s body with colorful clay, mud or ashes is common.

(Please click on image for a larger view.)

We at Scripture Pictures feel privileged to have trekked to such a primitive part of the world and send our love to the many villagers who welcomed us into their huts and hearts.

In His Love,

Patti, Henry and the Scripture Pictures Team
