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".

A Day with Nature

We went to Callaway Gardens and spent the day enjoying its beauty.  Weather was great and flowers are already blooming and it’s only the first part of February.  It is amazing what being out in nature does for the mind and soul of man.  We can walk through the woods and enjoy nature at its finest and feel the peace of God’s creation.  On the weekdays it is almost like the entire 13,000 acres of nature are ours.  Isn’t it refreshing when the only noise you hear is that of the wind in the trees or the ducks talking to each other.  So we just want to share some pics of the things we saw with you.  We hope you enjoy as much as we did and hope you each have a great weekend.

  3. Pretty pictures. Spring isn't far away around here, either. Just hope it doesn't come too early and get really bitten by a killer cold front.
