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".

Touches of Fall

                                         DSC_4035

I really love the fall time of the year.  A gentle brisk breeze, crystal blue skies, color starting to fill the trees, and animals passing through or just on the move.  Gerri & I sat out in our chairs and watched the birds come in for food and just enjoyed some beautiful weather.  We have been walking about a couple of miles each day, but today we bypassed the walk.  It’s great to soak up such beautiful weather, it livens your spirit.

This morning we went to church and heard an awesome message.  The singing was grand and we just had a wonderful blessing by being there.  Life is good and God is Great!

  1. Autumn is the time of year I feel the magic in the air. The golden glow of standing in a hardwood forest under a canopy of multi-colored Maple leaves in October is a feeling like no other.

  8. Autumn is my favorite time too. I love the coolness in the air, the crunch of leaves beneath your feet, and the vibrant colors. This time of year always takes me back to my childhood of what seemed like endless raking and then jumping in the pile of leaves.

    Fall is awesome! Even in California we can feel the slight nip in the morning air. It feels great to begin a new season. Hope you enjoy the week ahead.
