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".

Saint Patrick's Day
Today was a lazy day. We woke up at our regular time and saw it was raining and a bit cool out so we did what any full-timer would do, we went back to bed where it was warm and dry. It was nice to have that option! When we got up and had our morning routine complete, it was nearing lunch time. Before we went to eat, we called Darrell Patterson to wish him and Judy a happy anniversary. It must have been a Saint Patrick ’s Day wedding! Although Gerri and I didn't get married on Saint Patrick's Day, I feel extremely lucky to have met and fallen in love with my beautiful bride. She is my better half, and I am glad to be on this journey with her. As time slipped by, we both looked at each other and decided to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant….San Marcos to eat. It was sooo… good, we both had a chicken quesadilla.
After we ate, we went to LaGrange to take care of some bank business and get a prescription filled. When we got thru, Stephen called us and wanted to meet for a coke and a visit. By the time we got thru visiting, an hour and half had passed….. We enjoyed our visit and conversation.
It is still raining and the temps tonight are supposed to go down to the upper thirties. Man we are so tired of rain and cool temps.
