State of Mind

I stood overlooking the vastness of the desert while during my travels in Jordan last year. I remember thinking the desert in the US does not compare to the sight before my eyes. My state of mind was overwhelmed at the openness of it. This particular photo was taken at Mount Horeb; the place where Moses looked out over the promise land that the Israelite’s would inherit. I wondered if there was less sand then. With so many lush, rich areas on earth I wondered why this was the place that he decided to inhabit. Daily PostIMG_6287

Life’s Season

It has been too long since I have shared a piece of my life with the world. Perhaps this post will be the first of a flood or perhaps it is a single drop, that remains to be seen.

My post today is inspired by this week’s photo challenge at The Daily Post, Seasons. Jen is inviting us to share an image that depicts evocative weather or the current season in life. My son, the meteorologist, has some outstanding weather snaps all worth sharing but that is not what sung to my heart.

I have chosen a photo shot a few years ago of me and my husband flying a kite. It is a beautiful depiction of our present life season. All six of our children have left the nest and are making their way in the world. This means that me and him are left to discover the next big adventure God is planning for us. As the photo shows we are holding onto each other and the kite allowing the wind to carry us. It is a fun place to be.


Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40: 30-31
