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".

Be Still ……

DSC03260 DSC03262

Tonight was such a good night; I just wanted to share it. The campground is nearly empty and the weather was incredible. Gerri & I decided to just sit out under the stars and enjoy. We talked for a while and then we just sat and listened. We heard the gentle breeze and felt its freshness against our faces. We listened to the crickets and tree frogs in the not so distance. We could still here a few birds chirping in the trees……does it really get much better. There were a few clouds in the sky, but for the most part the sky was clear and the stars abundant.

I thought about the verse that says to “be still and know that I am God” and I thought wow! So many times we get so busy or always on the go somewhere, even in this lifestyle that we forget to be still and listen. My words cannot express the peace and relaxation that filled us this evening.

How incredibly blessed we are to have this opportunity to experience evenings like this. I hope we always keep our perspective and hearts set on this type of lifestyle, and not get so busy that we do not stop and listen and know!

Take care, be still and know……

Life is Good!
