A sunflower reminds me of a person: it’s like a head with hairs moved by the wind. Or take the sunflower below: she seems a bit lonely, far away from the other ones. She’s surrounded by others, but still alone. That’s how life feels sometimes! But what about this one: this sunflowers spreads her leaves like arms, saying: “Here I am, I love you, I look to you!” She’s like an open person, she looks you right in your eyes! This one is the one that gives life, a place where bees and other insects love to be. She is
I had only one opportunity to take some street photos during my business trip to Lagos, Nigeria, so I had to catch it! We travelled from the Ikeja district to the Ikorodu district. Luckily I was sitting on the right rear side of the car, and the window was clean! Sometime the car slowed down, which gave me the few seconds to take a picture. And…often we were close to the people walking on the streets. If I had opened my window, I could have touched the child in the yellow Tuk-Tuk! Later during that May day in 2022, in
(Click for Shqip) (Klik voor Nederlands) Almost every workday I start with a walk through our neighbourhood, before I read my Bible, have breakfast and start my working day. Walking helps me to focus on God. Especially these last months, when it was still dark outside and I could see the stars, I was impressed with the greatness of God. I like particular one street. It’s an old street, narrow, with old houses. It’s different from the rest of the neighbourhood, which has houses built later. One morning, when I walked through that street, I saw this scene, and I
Each year I make a large calendar (format A2) which is used for writing notes and events. I fill the calendar with pictures from the previous year (in this case 2021). So, during 2022 I will be remembered of special moment in 2021: a beautiful summer holiday in Ootmarsum, Overijssel, The Netherlands bird watching with a good friend on the island Texel, The Netherlands a kick-bike race with the mission organisation ECM a winter with real snow! I’m grateful towards God for all these special moments! See the calendar photos here: Photos Calendar 2022
Ootmarsum is situated in the east of The Netherlands, near the German border. Near to Ootmarsum is beatutiful nature, called “Bij de Bronnen” (“Near the Wells”) because of the water that wells up from the ground. We spent our holidays in this area, and we loved it. The light shone through the trees, a joy to see and pleasure for the heart! Close to our holiday house were a four horses: two adults and two young. Especially in the evenings, the young horses were running around like little children. It was fun to see them. The above photo is on
After a long day learning about WordPress, I wanted to make my first blog with a beautiful picture. I took my camera and walked into the woods nearby. There I saw this Digitalis. But what made it so special were the ants, climbing up and down to get some food from the flower. Imagine that you and I have to climb 200 floors of an appartment block to get our food. Up-and-down, all the time! But these little creatures of God do it. What a wonderful world!
For a short business trip I visited Salatiga in Indonesia. Our host picked us up in Semarang and took us into the hills to a restaurant where they roasted fresh coffee beans. One morning I walked from the hotel into the neighborhood where parents brought their children to school on their motorbikes. Nice to see!Discover a small part of Java, Indonesia.
