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 touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

                Happy thanksgiving

Gerri and I would like to wish all our friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving. 

I am thankful for my wife, Gerri and our son Stephen.  We are thankful that we live in America, still a land of freedom.  We have so many  freedoms and many of which we take for granted.  We are thankful to be able to freely worship God at church and in our daily lives and that God created us with remarkable bodies that modern medical science still doesn’t fully understand.  For our minds, emotions and our conscience that no computer will ever match. We are thankful for the Lord who gave His life that we may have life and life everlasting in and through Him.

We are also very thankful for our friends, though some we have never met. 

There are just so many things to be thankful for, we sometimes forget or take them fro granted.

To all, Happy Thanksgiving!

A Fall Morning and God’s Glory…All in Our Backyard

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.  ~Stanley Horowitz







         Just wanted to share the beauty of God’s painting from our backyard and patio. 

       We hope each of you have a grand day!
