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".

Wishing all our friends a very blessed and happy Easter. 


This morning we went to the Callaway Gardens for Easter Sunrise Service.  It was a beautiful service in a very beautiful setting by the lake. 




Afterwards, we went to the Lodge and Spa for a buffet breakfast…I think we overate, but it sure was good.



When we finally returned home, Gerri and I sat out in our new Lafuma recliners and took a nap!


We hope you each enjoyed the day and remembered the awesome significance of this day!


  1. Happy Easter to your family from the Dixon's. Your Sunrise Service looked beautiful. After we have lunch with Aunt Happy we will also be relaxing outside.

  2. We attended a nearby church this morning. When we got there they were in the midst of the egg hunt for the children. Betting it was planned for outside. Heavy thunderstorms all night and day. Looks like you are experiencing much nicer weather.

  3. A great Easter you had there....We did too...Live is indeed Good!

  4. What a beautiful place for a Sunrise Service. Sunrise Services have been a tradition for us since I was a baby and I'm 70 now :)

  5. Happy Easter to you and Gerri!..sounds like you spent the day doing exactly what you wanted!!..good for you!

  6. Happy Easter to you. Those recliners sure look inviting!! I can see why you took a nap.

  7. So glad to finally get caught up on your blog. We are hoping we can get to GA and Callaway Gardens, we have a friend who lives in Milledgeville and raves about Callaway. Happy Easter to the two of you.
