Minha Casa--My House

Last Blue House on the Left

House Built Out Of Palm Branches, Mato Grosso, Brazil
Storing up treasures in heaven is a hard concept for a lot of people to understand especial Americans who are use to having thing now and right away, I call them the" Now Generation," Gotta have it now. In Matthew 19:20 the Bible says But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. And in John 14:2 Jesus said; In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. So when I see people who seem to not have a lot as in the photos above, I'm reminded of those two verse of scriptures and realize that their situation on earth is only temporal but the promise of Heaven, to those who believe and receive Jesus into their hearts is eternal. Small Hut today Mansion tomorrow.

The Countryside of Matto Grosso, Brazil

Casa da Fazenda--Farmhouse
The countryside of Matto Grosso, Brazil, or maybe I should say the tranquil side of Brazil. Most people think Brazil, is just about beaches and the Amazon Rain Forest, but there is more to this big country than just that. On my two city tour I was able to sit back and reflex on the beauty of this wonderful country. I couldn't image traveling without my camera.

Cachoeira da Serra Azul-The Blue Sierra Waterfall

Cachoeira da Serra Azul-Bom Jardim, Matto Grosso, Brazil 

Downstream from the Waterfall
There are no shortages of beautiful waterfalls in Brazil, like this one here near Bom Jardim, in Matto Grosso. And one thing they all have in common beside their the Beauty and Majesty is they provide a great place to reflex on just how awesome God is. Beauty like this is definitely the handy work of a loving Creator. As Romans 1vs19-20 puts it... For the truth about God is known to them instinctively. From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities---his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing GodEnough said,  Amen!!

Meu Pequeno Papagaio-My Little Parrot

Yes, I know I'm Pretty
This is actually a Selfie I took of me and my new little friend
Your's truly with my new little friend Renaldo, the Parrot. He looks like a cross between a blue fronted and yellow front Amazon Parrot and he's very friendly. So friendly that he would not let me put him down so I brought him home with me where he is now very happy. Well, I guess I need to go buy some Brazil nuts to feed him. He also like Mangoes. Good thing cuz that's all there is to eat here right now.
I just Love Mangoes

Blue & Gold Macaws
Sunset at Logoa das Araras
Logoa das Araras, a logoon in the state of Mato Grosso, where every evening thousands of mostly Blue and Gold Macaws come home to roost after a long day of flying around the country side looking for food. You know these birds are coming by all noise they start making as they appoach there nesting ground for the night. It's hard to see but there are actually birds nesting in the trees top photo.
