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".

To Everything There is a Season

In light of all the horrible news happening throughout the world, isn’t it nice to know God still brings forth His seasons.  This season of spring is coming forth with renewal of His creation.   His painting in this world reminds us this earth is His creation.  Gerri & I hope you enjoy His beauty we have tried to capture in pictures.

We never want to forget the need to pray for those in Japan.  It is hard to go forward with our lives without remembering the tremendous needs of the people of Japan.

Oh those beautiful spring blooms. You are so right - God's creation is awesome. We spent today in the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest in AZ. Each has it's own majesty.

You are so right about the poor people of Japan. They are suffering and need not only our prayers but our help. Having lived there during my childhood I have a special place in my heart for them.

Your flower photos are so beautiful and have come at a good time. We are reluctantly leaving Florida tomorrow and going back home to Georgia, so your pictures remind me of what's waiting for us there!

My prayers are being said for those in Japan and the Middle East and for everywhere. Spring is God's way of letting us know that after the bad (cold, snow, wind, of winter) there is the good and beautiful. Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures with us.

Thanks for your beautiful photos - I love the header photo. Sometimes with all the terrible things happening around us, we forget that the good, beautiful things are still here, too. Your post was a breath of fresh air.

You post some of the most beautiful pictures. What kind of camera do you have? It may be the taker, and not the camera. Just curious though...

Wonderful, wonderful pictures of spring! Wouldn't want to give up winter in the south, BUT I do miss the spring bursts of flowering trees and shrubs, the daffodils, and the tulips. Red buds are one of our favorites. Thanks so much for bringing us spring!
