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 us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

The End of a Great Week
We stopped on the way back to get the oil and filter changed in the Jeep. As we were doing the maintenance thing on the Jeep Judy Patterson called. We had originally planned to go with Darrell and Judy and their friends from Maine to the Mardi Gras parade in Fairhope this evening. But as luck would have it, it is freezing cold outside and with the wind doing its thing it feels colder than the temps read. She was calling to let me know that they were wimping out on the parade and had decided to have dinner together instead. So instead of sitting in the freezing cold and getting beads and moon pies thrown at us we are going to be sitting in a warm motorhome eating and enjoying the company of friends. Sounds like an excellent trade off to me. Besides, Mike and I will get to meet two new friends tonight, Mike & Peggy. They are long times friends of Darrell and Judy from Maine.
That is about it for today. We came home and pretty much just rested a bit. I did a load of laundry and we are now getting ready to go “chat and chew” with some great folks. Life is good!!
