Thank you!

Photograph taken in Corvallis Oregon.  Added just for a reminder that there is still beauty all around us!

fullsizeoutput_5aI am nothing without love, and nothing without my faith of the Unseen Spiritual Power and Creator of it all. His presence is within me, flooding me with a will to live and the power to carry on, no matter what the future appears to be.

He holds me up, pushes me along, and gives me the encouragement to keep trying. I see Jesus struggling along the path, having done nothing but love and enlighten, being tortured as he marched to His grisly end on the planet, for a time.

His time with His creations should have been filled with intense love and trust. That baby boy, to grow to be a man, was filled with curiosity and kindness. He did no wrong to anyone. His faith in His Father was unshaken, and yet He was tortured and ridiculed for never denying his heritage and position as the leader of love and forgiveness.

My time is limited. Just when I feel I am not qualified to even accept the Grace offered as a full bounty, I am reminded by someone I love that I am His child still.

I must move WITH grace, having been given this gift freely. I must accept that because He stills sings in my heart, without me ever touching Him, He touches me, and still moves me to tears because of the thought of His love for me..for all His creations. I must accept that no matter what, He wants me with him forever…and you.

All my flaws, all my insecurities, all the times of strife I let this world almost get the better of me. He has never left my heart and my mind. He stands steadfast with me amidst the horrors of the world and will always be my shield and source.

I am ever grateful for His subtle and enduring love that moves me back to Him again with just mere words. I am forever of His mind and Love, and forgive, even myself, for my sometimes awkward and inept words and ways. For those times I let evil grasp me and fool me.

Once again I am empowered and able to move with grace and beauty. I simply awoke and I am transformed again. Create a beautiful day. Fill it with love and forgiveness. Each moment we are able to forgive and begin again!

We should all love one another, even if just in an act of kindness. Smile for no reason. See the beauty of each individual. Take a breath and believe YOU are able to change your world, and the worlds of those who are a part of you life…even if you simply pass by in the market. You are in charge. Use the innate power that fills the space in your heart saved only for God and Godly things. For heavens sake, and the sake our being – hug someone! I love you.

I took these photos from the seat of my car – no fancy camera, very little zoom.  Coming home from our trip over Thanksgiving we saw them close to the side road exit.  Bless my husband’s heart. He turned around and we pulled off the road to sit, in silence, in wonder of these magnificent Elk.

These creatures are one of the largest species of the deer family (in the world. ) Male elk have large antlers which are shed each year.

Hunters know as a game species; the meat is leaner and higher in protein than beef or chicken.  It is delicious too, as I have eaten an elk steak – HOWEVER – I would rather just enjoy them through photography!

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!

Nature is Exquisite

After watering I saw droplets of water on a cobweb.  Call me crazy, but I think it was just beautiful.  The sun hit the drops and sparkled, and it reminded me there is beauty all around us if we just take the time to look!

A Gift to You from God

A Gift to You from God

I Saw God

May 20, 2012

I looked outside the window this morning, cozy in my soft light blanket.  I opened the window and the leaves in the trees glistened while being gently moved by a breeze, I couldn’t see.

I heard the Mockingbird sing the song of ten birds, all in tune, and proudly as if the whole world could see and hear his songs.  I couldn’t see him.

Doves have nested somewhere close by, and throughout the day I may see them, if I look quickly, dart to and fro, and talk to each other with a melodic “coo-coo”.

The shadow of a cat walked on my fence and my dog ran quickly to the edge, fierce and ready to attack.  I doubt that she would know what to do if she caught up with the cat.  She is gentle and a love to everyone.  I would have it no other way.

There is a crisp  about the air, though the heat has already begin to settle in comfortably.

When I sat outside to have my coffee I wondered how many people are not privileged to have such luxuries.  I felt blessed. It matters not how much money I have, nor what the future holds.

This moment is golden and this morning I saw God, once again, in every wonderful touch of nature and it’s creatures; the sights and sounds.

If you haven’t seen God yet today.  Look around.  Look at a child, a puppy, your hands, your eyes, your heart.

I saw God….you will too, if you only look.
