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".

Happy Birthday Gerri

Today is my sweet wife’s birthday! Happy Birthday Gerri!

Gerri & I woke up to a windy rainy day, but we were not going to let it “dampen” our day; it is Gerri’s birthday and that is special to us. We met Stephen for lunch at Longhorns and had a great meal together. The food was really good and the company at the table was marvelous. At the end of the meal, our waiter, a friend of Stephen’s, brought out a large Texas Stampede cake with ice cream for Gerri. It was so big we all three ate some and still could not finish the cake and cream. After we ate, Stephen wanted to pay for his mom’s lunch as a treat for her. What a grand time and superb meal at Longhorns.

After we left Longhorns, we went to pick up the birthday cake we had ordered for Gerri. Needless to say, we had to wait a good while before we could eat our birthday cake. We went to Stephen’s apartment and watched some tv and just visited together. Gerri got her birthday cards and gifts. We broke out the cake and put the candles to it and Stephen and I harmonized the Happy Birthday Song to Gerri. Gee we could have been a singing duo. LOL.
Later in the afternoon, Gerri & I came back to the MH. We just kinda chillaxed and enjoyed being together for the rest of the day. It was a grand day and I am glad to be a part of Gerri’s special day. Thank you Gerri for being such a special part of my life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY !
