Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

Ok, generally we are very rational people but after all these months on the market we are getting a little desperate. The other day I found a site on the computer explaining all about St. Joseph and the belief, by many, that he has helped them in the sell of their home. The legend says that St. Joseph is honored as the husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus. He represents a humble family man who worked as a carpenter and is considered the patron saint of home, family and more recently house-hunting (or in our case, house selling). Popular belief holds that people wishing to enlist St. Joseph's help in selling a house should bury his replica upside-down, facing away from the house about three feet from the "for sale" sign. After the statue is buried you say a sellers meditation and then wait for a buyer for your house. Well it seemed harmless enough so I bought one. Sunday afternoon Mike and I buried our replica of St. Joseph, said our little meditation and now we wait for that perfect family to fall in love with our home.

Of course, some people are VERY skeptical!!!

We will let you know how it goes - you just never know!!
