One of those nights...

If you saw THIS PROJECT 52 POST over at Allenaim, you might have noticed that the air was that beautiful kind of misty haze with sunshine cutting through...it was just one of those nights.  One of those nights when everything seems perfect and serene and hopeful and calm and perfect.

Too bad it was May 20th.   The day before crazy Mr. Camping said the world was going to end.  Now, as a preacher's daughter and the proud owner of a Bible minor (thank you Cedarville!), I was well aware that we are not going to know the time or date of the rapture, but I'm still a tiny bit gullible.  It still scares me a bit when people start predicting the end of the world.  I still get queasy thinking about my kids and the rapture...  I'm not quite ready for it all and how dare Harold Camping take a perfect night and put a tiny bit of fear into it. 

Anyway, the 21st came and went and clearly we are all still here...including Mr. Camping.  ...but doesn't it make you think about Noah...how everyone laughed him away as a joke while he was building a ginormous ark because the world was going to flood?  I'm sure people had "flood" parties making fun of him too.  I'm sure people got mad because they ruined their perfect evenings with tales of a coming judgement. 

So what do you think?  Did you have even a twinge of worry that night?  Were you perturbed?  

I know I said an extra prayer that night...and then moved on to enjoy the beauty our Creator gave us...the air was that beautiful kind of misty haze with sunshine cutting through...it was just one of those nights.  One of those nights when everything seems perfect and serene and hopeful and calm and perfect.

I resorted to making snarky jokes about the rapture which is how I deal with that kind of thing. :-)

Your photos are beautiful as always.

I missed the entire incident...I didn't know it was the end of the world until THAT day, when my teenage son and I were shopping and he jokingly mentioned that he needed to hurry and buy his iTunes card before the world ended...oh well, I seem to always be a bit behind...lol
your photos look so whimsical!

I love that you do not separate the Creator from creation. Everything is so much more beautiful when you know there is a reason for it.
You have cornered the market on bokeh, m'dear. WOW.

I love your pictures. I need to pick your brain about cameras and lenses and all the things you're not supposed to ask a good photographer. :D

Rapture Schmapture. I always feel assured that the days people predict to be the end will most certainly NOT be the end because I feel like God would rather surprise us all. :)
Had to feature you once again at the Garden Party blog hop! :)

Come take a look!
