Down the road from us and right off the highway of all places has become a birthing place for this deer. I get to watch her most years spend a few weeks having her fawns and keeping them safe until they are big enough to move on. She usually has two. One year I gotContinue reading “A Doe and Her Fawn”
We took a little family vacation this summer! This is amazing in so many ways. Not only because we haven’t ever been on a real vacation away in our 21 years of marriage but the sights we got to go see…were truly an unforgettable experience. If you haven’t recognized it yet this is Wizard IslandContinue reading “Unfathomable”
This moment brought to you by a little tree by the road. Such a lovely sight. The Hawthorne flower in the sunlight.
There is this spot I walk by often. One year, soon after I discovered the unique beauty of the Coral Root orchid, I noticed a whole cluster of them in this spot.

The lily of the forest. They are so lovely and delicate, they smell amazing too. God reminding us He loves us just in the gracious beauty around us. Fingerprints of God.
One of my favorite scenes that I often come back to is those green paths through the woods. Ground covered with soft moss and delicate grasses, the majestic evergreens swaying above. I always walk away feeling new inside. Life has a way of making me critical and pessimistic, it is a daily struggle. My yearsContinue reading “Themes”
