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".

Great News

                                Looks like a need for a little Crowd Control

GREAT NEWS!!  Mike and I received the news last Friday concerning his recent prostate biopsy.  All 12 cores came back benign.  We are so thankful and appreciate all the wonderful comments offering special thoughts and prayers.  We were always hopeful but you never know for sure until the “fat lady” sings.  Needless to say we are delighted with this news and thankful to God.  It was a long week of waiting.

With the temperatures nearing 100 we have not been doing anything blog worthy.  We have mostly  been staying inside where it is much cooler.  Today Mike decided to take me out for lunch and that was certainly a special time together.  After we finished eating we just sat and talked for quite awhile.  Simple pleasures!

Sometimes we all need to be broadsided by a real scare to make us realize what is really important..It happened to Den and I when they saw a nodule on his lung..which, after 3 days on pins and needles, turned out to be nothing..His sis died of lung Cancer, so we were frozen with fear...So glad Mike had the same good news..nothing wrong!
