Adonai is your guardian; at your right hand
Adonai provides you with shade —
the sun can’t strike you during the day
or even the moon at night.
Adonai will guard you against all harm;
he will guard your life.
Adonai will guard your coming and going
from now on and forever. ~ Psalm 121:5-8, CJB
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the below four collages must be worth at least eighty thousand words! No. I am not a photographer, but whenever I travel I still take plenty of pictures, which is why I recently started making photo collages.
What I am so thankful for the most, as far as my travels are concerned, is that no matter how long my trips were or how far away my travels took me, the one thing I always could count on was God’s traveling mercies. Whenever and wherever I have traveled, God’s traveling mercies certainly have kept me safe from every kind of serious injury, maltreatment, sickness, disease, and/or other danger (seen and unseen). His traveling mercies also have disallowed long delays in airports, air and ground traffic disasters or accidents, and so forth.
Additionally, I am very thankful to God for the many places I have been to in this world. Some of my travels happened while I was serving my country in the United States Air Force. Other journeys have taken place while working on foreign and/or national mission fields. Still other excursions have been for pleasure and/or leisure. So far, the places I have loved visiting the most are China, South Korea, and Japan. More important, some people and sights from these three countries are in the below four collages.
The first collage consists of some of my Chinese co-laborers, friends, fellow tourists, and tourist attractions from the People’s Republic of China. Several pictures were taken in Beijing, Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China), and Foshan in the Guangdong province.
The second collage also consists of my Chinese co-laborers, friends, fellow tourists, me, and more tourist attractions from the People’s Republic of China. Several pictures were taken in Beijing, Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China), Macau (Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China), and Foshan in the Guangdong province.
Collage number three consists of my South Korean co-laborers, friends, street venders, fellow tourists, me, and a few tourist attractions from the Republic of Korea (South Korea). Several pictures were taken in Seoul, Insadong, Itaewon, and Seosan.
Last but not least, collage number four consists of my Japanese co-laborers, friends, me, and a few tourist attractions from Japan. Several pictures were taken in Osakasayama, Sakai, Namba, Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara.
The memories I have captured in all of the above collages, as depicted by the 20 single pictures per collage, I either took, had someone take for me, or someone else took some of the pictures and sent to me. Now, these pictures in no way have made a dent in the number of pictures that I have accumulated over the years; however, these pictures are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
