River


If a spring like day, and a walk along the river 
wasn't a perfect way to end the day...


being pleasantly surprised by this playful otter was.

Change


When he left for college, I think I was lost.


It's taken a while, but I feel like I have finally emerged.

Winter


Craving fresh air and quiet,
I went for a walk around the lake,
and found unexpected beauty at every turn.




Lake of the Ozarks



I love how much there is to discover,
even in Winter. 

I hope you discover the beauty in your day.

XOXO

Ice


In the midst of a busy week,
a seemingly random covering of ice...


felt like a divine orchestration to slow things down.
When things seem to be moving at breakneck speed...
I welcome some slow.
Love it even.

XOXO

Signs


I truly believe in signs...
little kisses from God,
that tell us - 
especially when we urgently need to be told-


that everything's going to be okay,
that He knows what we need.

XOXO

UFO

It was an absolutely gogeous day to take Scotty for a walk at the lake.  
I got all caught up in a trance watching the geese drift along,
and the water sparkling around them.


It was silent.


It was calm...
everything was peaceful.


Until it wasn't.


A colossal splash broke the silence.
It scared the hell  dickens out of me !






Then...there IT was !


The Unidentified Floating Object.








I snapped shots hoping to capture the mysterious creature...
 MY FRIGHT turning into excitement and awe.


And what did Scotty do ?







*smile


Have a peaceful weekend.

XOXO

The end. :)

Hope


"Bless the beasts and the children.  For in this world they have no voice.
They have no choice.
Bless the beasts and the children for the world can never be the world they see.






 Light their way when darkness surrounds them, give them love.


 Let it shine all around them.

  
Bless the beasts and the children.


Give them shelter from the storm.


Keep them safe.


Keep them warm.




 





















Light their way when darkness surrounds them.
Give them love.
Let it shine all around them."
~Carpenters~

I hope your New Year is filled with hope and love.

XOXO

Quiet

Because how would we ever know  what our dreams are, if we don't give ourselves the peaceful, quiet moments to explore them. ...
