Rest

Rest

This photo was taken at a Christian Women's conference at the Garden Club in Dade City, FL. During the silent hour of prayer, I found this bench beckoning me to come and rest in His presence.

Peaceful Path

Peaceful Path

This photo was taken at the Withlacoochee River State Park in Pasco Co FL.
Although I could not see what lay ahead of me on the path, I believed I would find the river at the end of it. The paths we walk and bridges we cross may be difficult at times. Our Lord asks us to walk by faith; trusting and believing that at the end of the path, we will find His righteousness.

Living Water

Living Water

This photo was taken while I was wondering the mountains in Hawkins Co. TN. on Christmas Eve. Back home in the hills of southeastern Ohio, there was always a candle light midnight service on Christmas Eve. I could find no church in this area that was holding a late service that evening. When I came upon this waterfall, I decided to worship there in the icy mountain mist. In joy and adoration I gave thanks for the night our dear Savior, Jesus Christ was born.

The Way Home

The Way Home

This photo was taken on a beautiful, sunny autumn day on Back Valley Road in Blackwater, VA.
When hiking back country roads, I truly am in awe of God's amazing creative hand. I can't resist following the paths of golden sunlight streaming through the many colored leaves. It is though God is allowing us a burst of color and warmth to prepare for the approaching long, cold winter.

Silence

Silence

This photo was taken from the road that led to my cabin in Blackwater, VA. After a fresh fallen snow, I would walk a mile or two on this road enjoying the peaceful silence. Time seems to stand still after a heavy snow. Winter, the season in which God calls us to be still and just listen to His voice.

Still Waters

This photo was taken as I hiked the woods that surrounded my cabin in the mountains of Blackwater, VA.
In this moment, there was frozen silence except for the soft flowing water in this snowy creek. When we are treading in the unfamiliar territories of life not sure of what direction to take; He will always lead us to His still waters.

This is a breathtaking spot, where time seems to stand still. In this moment of awe, the greatness of our God overwhelmed me.
A time to truly be thankful for His amazing grace and mercy.
