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".

28 Grand Years

                                                                     DSC03607

Twenty-eight years ago today Gerri & I were married.  It was a spectacular day, and life has gone uphill since.  I can still see Gerri coming down the aisle in her wedding dress.  There was such a glow about her, I would have sworn she was an angel walking that aisle.  You know, she was! Gosh, she sure was beautiful.  Twenty-eight years later, she is still beautiful, and we are best and closer friends now.

Tonight we went to the Plantation Room at Callaway Gardens Resort for dinner.

If you don’t already know it, Callaway is an extremely special place for us.  At night, they have a great buffet, and the ambiance is so soothing and elegant to us.  Well, the food was great, the ambiance superb, and I dined with my best and dearest friend!  What could be better, and you know, Gerri still has that glow!

  26. Happy Anniversary! I found your blog today through the Vantramps site. DH & I love the Callaway area - your post reminded me that we haven't been up that way for a while.

    So we just made plans to go over to Pine Mtn. and maybe re-visit the Little White House over the Xmas break.

  28. The joining of two kindred spirits 28 years ago give evidence to the power of love and how beautiful it can be to gaze in the same direction.
    What a blessing!!
