My Night Life

Tonight I experimented in the dark, and I think it’s my cup of tea!  I captured the top of our Flowering Plum and the bare Pansy Redbud to see how they looked with the night sky as their backdrop (which apparently is just black).


I’ve always been a night owl, so this really makes me happy. With my gallivanting days behind me—keeping myself entertained after dark is important.

God is great, and life is good!

Morning Glory Surprise

This colorful flowering vine belongs to our neighbor, yet it sneaks into our yard, back behind a shed where no one dares to go. I had to crawl through a creepy web to get a good view, but it was worth it—and I was looking for adventure. Too much coffee perhaps. Anyway, I spruced it up and darkened the background to show off the colors—and then I did a Black & White for Rebecca.

Just Do It

Well, I’ve been thinking again. I’m seriously considering the idea of writing (and doing photography) professionally. I never HAVE pursued my dreams in life, except for my business. But that’s because I already knew HOW to do it, and it paid the bills. It was convenient. Plus I was confident that it would work—so I kind of made it my dream—but I never LOVED it.

I guess you could say I’m on the verge of a new pursuit! But it’s a good one this time. It’s not about a destination either, it’s about following a dream and just doing it!

Next on the agenda: Game plan.

Stay encouraged!

Conversation with God

Father, you feel so far away,
I’m not sure that my words are right.
All I ask is to feel you near…
Did you hear my prayer last night?

Open your eyes my little one,
Remember the veil was torn apart.
Be still, and know that I am God…
for I am speaking to your heart.

I’ve summoned the wind to join us,
My spirit stirs amidst the breeze.
Look! The branches, they dance about…
Rustling leaves whisper melodies.

Forever and ever I am with you child,
I’m everywhere, and in everything.
Your words need not be perfect…
I know your heart, I hear it sing!

Oh thank you Heavenly Father,
for this song that you’ve given me.
I’ll be back again tomorrow…
to dance beneath our sacred tree.
