Smiling Eyes

  We settled in our chairs, sitting in the middle of the rice fields, somewhere in eastern India and the people came. First, the women and children and soon after, the men gathered around the edges. The smell of something burning overwhelmed our sense of smell. Maybe rice fields were being burned off, but the pungent, stinging air was really

Ripples In The Reflections

  Early one morning, I drove out Lake Road which runs alongside the Tchefuncte River. It was an unusually calm morning on the river. Seldom do I catch it “glassy”. I pulled over near the edge, looking for the perfect picture to go with a “reflections” post that has been on my mind. Sudden movement caught my eye and I

It Is Well

  The song, “It Is Well With My Soul”, was written in 1873 by Horatio G. Stafford.  Almost 125 years ago, I wonder what was going on in his life at the time he wrote this. My awareness of my soul status heightens when there is so much chaos in the world around me. Life continues to present struggle after

Katrina Meets Harvey

  Here’s something I have learned about life. Moments come and go. Some are forever forgotten. Some are earmarked for celebration year after year as long as we walk this earth. Many, we wish to forget.  I can easily make a list of ten things that will always be with me. Thing is – those “things” tend to shift priority

I See Your Mountains

  I love sharing my adventures and journeys through photographs. Anyone who spends any time with me knows I’m always looking for the beauty surrounding me. My pictures reflect what I see. They do not reflect what’s going on in me and around me. I never want to mislead anyone to think my life is . . . pardon the

We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! 1 Corinthians 13:12 The Message Life. If you have lived many years on this earth, you probably have experienced ups and downs.

Even In The Small

I walked past this guy hanging on the wall. I don’t know his name. How does he manage to balance the unique set of body parts he has been given? He manages because his Creator’s design works. He has everything he needs. I’m reminded of people I know. Looking at the circumstances of their lives, it’s hard to imagine how

The Beautiful Butterfly

Looking up at the hanging baskets at the nursery recently, I spotted this beauty. The sun was behind her and the light – incredible. It was as though she posed for me. Really! I mean, look how she’s showing off! Her beauty moves me. My heart was amazed at the detail of her design and the colors! God spared nothing

Friday, Saturday and Sunday

It’s Friday. This cross stands in front of a very old church in a tiny town out in the mountains of Honduras. I’ve been thinking about Jesus a lot today. My hands and feet have been busy doing mundane tasks. My mind has been very focused on what happened one Friday afternoon when the world changed. Jesus hands and feet

Unsuspecting

Have you ever been blind sided? Maybe a bill showed up. Maybe a bad report from the doctor or news of a job change? Maybe life just hasn’t turned out like you had planned? Relationships in families become difficult, your company is bought out and a fresh, full of energy young boss shows up, new neighbors move in and the
