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".

We want to take this time to pause and remember the victims and to grieve with the families and friends of those who lost their lives on 9/11.  We also want to remember all the heroes of that day as well as all who serve this great country both here and abroad. 


  1. Simply stated and beautiful.
    God Bless America
    Blessings, Kathy

  2. Well said, Mike and Gerri! You voiced my sentiments.

  3. Yep...the Land of the Free...BECAUSE of the brave! We all should NEVER forget...EVER!!

  4. My country, tis of thee
    Sweet land of Liberty
    Of the I sing
    Land of the Pilgrim's Pride
    Land where my fathers died
    From every mountainside
    Let Freedom Ring!

  5. Great post. I think all true Americans feel the way you do. Amen to that!

  6. This really is such an important time to remember, Thank You for sharing your thoughts on it. There were so many acts of bravery and selfless sacrifice during that incredible tragedy, it makes you realize how important life is and gives me a whole new sense of respect for those in the emergency/rescue/protection type jobs.

    God Bless America!
