Savoring Moments Through My Lens # 2

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.  Psalm 24: 1-2 The sandpipers poked their beaks in the sand not noticing me at first.  As I approached them, they dispersed.  Flying across the [...]

Amen to Wonder

Years ago when my husband and I moved out of a large city and bought a house on a wooded 10 acre piece of property, my parents would escape from city life, several times a year, to spend weekends with us.  And once a year my mother would come by herself and stay for a [...]
