ABC Wednesday – O   30 comments

The letter this week is “O” and I have chosen one of my favorite flowers to share…

Orchidaceae, also called the Orchid family, is the largest family of the flowering plants …

The different varieties of this wonderful flower never cease to amaze me.  They are truly a remarkable addition to creation!

I love this shot of Catalina Island off the Southern California coast. I fly over this island every week – coming and going to Washington. 

In this picture from last Thursday’s flight home, it looked like the clouds were dancing around the island!

Ultimate Blog Party   96 comments

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Hello and welcome to my blog! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Lana G! I am a MCWWNK (married Christian woman with no kids). I have a wonderful husband named Steve and we will have been married 20 years this July. We live in the state of Washington and I work in the state of California. This puts me on a plane two times a week, hence the name of my blog – Above the Clouds.


The fun part of this Ultimate Blogging Party is that today is my Blogging One Year Anniversary! Time flies when you are having fun! I must admit that I started blogging out of curiosity because of my sister Ellen. She started blogging and I found it fascinating and tried it out on the sly! But then I was hooked and I absolutely love blogging.


I really did not have a particular goal for my blog when I first started and now the following verses that Paul writes about in Philemon 4-7 are what I would like for people to experience here:

I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your love for all his people and your faith in the Lord Jesus. I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people.

I want you to experience all that here and most of all that your heart is refreshed in the Lord! The way that I hope to do this is not only through what is written and shared here but also by my photography. That is why 99% of my posts include a photograph. I am not a professional by any means but I really enjoy photography.


One of my favorite things to do with my photos is to make collages as well as Bible verse photos. I do not go anywhere without my camera. I even take pictures at the grocery store! This makes for interesting photos to match a verse to and it also has allowed me to appreciate all the wonders of creation!


Blogging has blessed my socks off. I am so encouraged by the different blogs I visit. I love participating in several different memes and photography challenges during the week. Blogging keeps me up to date with friends and loved ones and they in turn are up to date on what is happening in our lives.


So, feel free to peek around my blog and I hope and pray that you will leave here refreshed and blessed!
