Great Barrier Reef

Happiness is:  Looking at God's Glorious Creation and appreciating our World.
There are many beautiful exciting places.
Clint took us back to The Smoky Mountains and Pigeon Forge on his Blog today.
So excellent!!!
Ray and I were married there.

So now its my turn to share.....
The amazing Great Barrier Reef, on the top of Queensland.
Where I live is situated just below the Barrier Reef line on the map.
This Reef runs 2,000 kilometres or 1,250 miles...
This a natural wonder and marine paradise.
The first time I sighted it from a plane,  I could not believe the immense beauty.


Can you see the Heart of Gods Love??? It's real!
If you can snorkel you enter another world. 
One that goes back through time.
No, your not on the moon.
You travel out to the pontoon and look into the ocean from glass bottomed boats.

There is something about watching fish swim. 
It calms and relaxes.

  3. I've had the privilege of travelling to the Great Barrier Reef and spending a day out on the islands. I'm afraid I'm not a snorkeller as such but with a little help I did manage to go out a little way and see many of the smaller fish and coral. Just lovely :-)

  5. Hi Chrystal,

    Beautiful, I love these pictures. The more you and Kerrie share, the more I would like to visit Australia, especially Queensland. Thinking of you and hoping all goes well with your surgery. Hugs Nita

  6. I have read of the GBR all my life. I would give anything to be able to experience it first hand. It, and so much of the Australia area, seem so fascinating to me.

  16. Just Beautiful! I do not have all that to bring me to the "awe" of God's beauty, but I do have a huge backyard full of night creatures singing their song of Praise to the Great Shepherd and the diamonds in the sky just light up my backyard and the glowing orange moon ...brings me to my kneels with gratitude for such a God that is so personal and had me on his mind when he created such beauty...always always enjoy reading your blogs.

  18. MUITO BOM! Eu acredito que Deus criou o homem e deixou o manual de instrução, a “BÍBLIA SAGRADA!” A bíblia é a divina revelação da palavra de Deus e não produtos enlatados, eu costumo dizer que: “As pessoas precisam parar de comer tudo o que dão. E começar a questionar! ” Alguém escuta alguma coisa de alguém, e saem falando, sem questionar, sem saber se é verdade ou não. As pessoas precisam se perguntar! Será que a minha crença esta de acordo com a lei de Deus? Será que a religião que eu nasci sempre me falou a verdade? Quando uma pessoa morre pra onde ela vai? Ela volta? A bíblia apóia o homossexualismo? Quem não herdara o reino de Deus? O que devo saber sobre idolatria, imagens e escultura? O que devo saber sobre o único batismo? Será que tem uma seqüência para salvação? A quem eu devo me confessar, quem pode me perdoar? Religião salva alguém? Essas e outras perguntas e respostas em:

    Você pode dizer, eu já sou salvo amém! Vamos atrás de quem não esta, “Se você quer se dar bem com o mundo seja hipócrita, mas se você quer se dar bem com Deu seja verdadeiro!” divulgue este site, porque: “Eis que vêm dias, diz o Senhor Jeová, em que enviarei fome sobre a terra, não fome de pão, nem sede de água, mas de ouvir as palavras do Senhor. E irão vagabundos de um mar até outro mar, e do norte até ao oriente; correrão por toda parte, buscando a palavra do Senhor, e não a acharão." ( Amós cap 8 ver 11 e 12 )Fale para outras pessoas, por que “O Senhor não retarda a sua promessa, ainda que alguns têm por tardia: mas é longânimo para convosco, não querendo que alguns se percam, senão que todos venham a arrepender-se.” (II Pedro cap. 3 ver 8) e “Que quer que todos os homens se salvem, e venham ao conhecimento da verdade. Porque há um só Deus, e um só Mediador entre Deus e os homens, Jesus Cristo o homem. (I A Timóteo cap 2 ver 5 e 6)
    Seja sua bíblia, católica ou evangélica, aqui você vai tirar suas duvidas.

    E conhecereis a verdade, e a verdade vos libertara (João cap 8 ver 32) Se você tiver coragem de perguntar, a bíblia terá coragem de responder!
