But you should be wise regarding the ripening of an age; you should be alert to discern the signs of the times. You know when the fig tree shows its tender branches and puts forth its leaves that summer is near. Likewise, when the world has passed through the long winter of material-mindedness and you discern the coming of the spiritual springtime of a new dispensation, should you know that the summertime of a new visitation draws near.

Beauty in Nature Icebergs
By Hugh Perry
Icebergs sometimes have stripes, formed by
layers of snow that react to different conditions.
Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet
fills up with melt water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
When an iceberg falls into the ocean, a layer of water can
freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a
Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up
when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.
Frozen Wave Pixs - Nature is amazing!
The water froze the instant the wave broke through the
ice. That's what it is like in ____ where it is the
coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant
it comes in contact with the air. The temperature of the
water is already some degrees below freezing.
Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!!!
Having the Internet means that we get to see something
that we never imagined! Pass it on for others to enjoy!
