Praying For Canada

Praying for my Canadian family and friends 
today as they mourn the loss of 
Corporal Nathan Cirillo,
killed yesterday in Ottawa.

Terrorism is leaving no country untouched
or unscathed.

Praying for Corporal Cirillo's family,
and for the proud people of Canada.

I remember sitting in tears,
watching the television when the United States
was under attack in 2001.
That feeling of helplessness,
the feeling of uncertainty,
it's a scary place to be.
Hold on to the faith that all will be well.
Hold on to God.
And hold onto each other.

Taking It Easy

It was a beautiful day to spend working with the horses.
This is Rascal, Kali's horse.
Actually, Mark worked and I watched.
I spent the morning at the podiatrist having my achilles tendon issue re-evaluated. 
Walking is a major pain right now, so I'm spending a lot of time sitting. 
(This is Gus. Our primadonna, or prima-don as the case may be.)
So I rode out and sat and took some cell phone pictures of the boys. 
Ha! Sawyer is sticking his tongue out at me! 
Actually he was hoping to get some more treats. 
They all were.
Gus always hope for more treats. And he thinks licking the camera will help his cause. Silly Gus!
Then the girls wanted treats. 
No idea why Luna is hiding behind that post!
I swear I think they were plotting against me.
"Let's frolic and be all cute and stuff.
Maybe the lady will give us more treats!"
Sawyer was all like, 
"Grow up, girls!
You have to act all nonchalant, 
like you don't care.
Then she'll give you all the treats you want."

Keep dreaming, Sawyer!
And, back to my ice pack I go.

As you go through today, just remember that God already sees your path and He is going before you. 
Trust Him to protect you and to keep you safe. 
Sheltered in the refuge of His wings.

Sorry, but I do not remember where I took this picture. If this church steeple looks familiar to you, please leave a comment and tell me where it might be :). Thank you!

Sunset in Cedar Key

I love looking at sunset/sunrise photos as much as the next person. 
Recently we spent a few days in Cedar Key, and as we walked along the water 
that night I noticed this most unusual looking sunset.
I am sure I've never seen one that looked like this before. It sort of looks like smoke rising from the trees. 
Or maybe a tornado drifting before it spins itself out. It had so much color, so much oomph! 
This week on Inspiration Avenue, the challenge is sunrise/sunset. This is my post for the week. 
If you would like to see all the interpretations, head on over to this page.
You could even post your own!

A Tangled Web

 When I woke up this morning it was hazy and foggy outside. 
Standing at my work desk, looking out the windows, 
I noticed this web attached to one of the metal posts out on the deck.
I haven't taken any photos in a long time, but I just had to go outside 
to try to capture this shot as the dew and mist hung on the web. 
Glad I did because it wasn't five minutes before 
the sun came out and dried up all the mist.

Hotel Providence

Last week I was in Providence, Rhode Island, attending training to become a certified teacher of the art of zentangle. Don't worry if you don't know what that is. It's really easy to understand. You can look at my other blog - The Creator's Leaf - and see for yourself. Most of the artwork posted there was drawn in the style of zentangle. 

Right now I am editing photos of the hotel and surrounding area. So, stay tuned and expect more photos soon!

The Greatest . . . Love

Closing in on getting these finished up. A beautiful wedding - a beautiful bride! Two hearts for God!

They Said, "I Do!"

I second shot a wedding with Color Me Happy Photography last weekend and am editing shots now. Simple though this may be - it is one of my favorite shots from the wedding. Probably because of the starfish in the foreground and the cross in the background. You know I am always looking for those cross shots! Stay tuned for more to come :).
