In These Mountains

20190507_133719

On a tough day, or when I need recovering, you can find me,

or I can find myself again

in these mountains.

You see they have a way,

a miraculous way

of removing bitterness

and fatigue.

In Memory of Natalie

20190507_122103

My friend, I know you are dwelling in the light of 1 million suns now, walking with the Savior, talking, having those conversations you always dreamed about,

but I took some pictures the other day, and thought of you as I looked through the lens. I hope you enjoy them.

And I thought of how you have encouraged us so many times when we were down, with your words of light and life, and your beautiful photographs.

Thank you my friend. We miss you….I miss you. Pray for us, those still remaining…..

And Lord God, thank You for our friend….Natalie.

Amen. 

In Memory of Natalie Scarberry, a blogging friend, and source of incredible encouragement.

His Heart Really Could Soar

20170628_132524

Having rejected the blood of kings, and thrones, and swords called devils, he had always embraced the wind.

So he stood there, on top of the mountain with his arms outstretched and a mist in his eyes, remembering

the light he’d been given. And that his heart really could soar, in spite of the violence….. of our world.

The Strength of Spirit

20190507_121804

Some men know how to rebuke the thunder, pulling down the noise, even silencing the destruction of kings and sovereigns.

And yet they will hold you when you cry, write a poem when you’re blue, simply leaving a line or two. And some men too, know the power of flowers.

It is the strength of spirit, in a sensitive guy……

Blessings for Mother’s Day

20190507_121018.jpg

Happy Mother’s Day!

Wishing all Moms the best of days, good health and wonderful blessings.

But some have lost their Moms recently, so may you be comforted and lifted up each day.

And some Moms raise their children by themselves. May you be given strength and everything your family needs!

And for those that hope to be Moms in the future, God bless you!

Peace and blessings to each one. Amen.
