In Praise of Creation


When beauty arrives
Exquisite in its being
Praise the creator

Beauty is present
Precious is the life it shares
Praise the creator

Beauty is captured
Creation is of your God
Gentle on the eyes

Thanks be to God!

Once in a Blue Moon



Well, we've flown by Pluto, now, you know, the Dwarf Planet.  It's amazing that for 10 years there are those who waited patiently for this event to happen.  And the amazing thing is that the scientists weren't sure it would be successful.  TEN YEARS!!  I can only imagine the excitement, anxiety, or just sheer terror they must have experienced until the first photos arrived.

I, on the other hand, can never get a good photo of the moon...Well, "once in a blue" one.

When I imagine
Traveling in outer space
My head is spinning

Leaving Mother Earth
It's impossible to me
I have deep roots here

So, in my admiration to those who strive to gain knowledge of the unknown I say, "Thank you!"  Adventures like these only validate the beauty and complexity of God's creation!

Mosaic/Macro Monday~~Air Plant




I was introduced to Air Plants by a dear friend and coworker a couple of months ago.  The one she gave to me then is cute and small and I have named him Simon.  She went to visit family in Tennessee a week ago and I asked her to bring me two more when she went to Gatlinburg.  This is one of the two she brought to me.  Isn't she lovely.  Sarah told me that this variety of of air plant may only bloom once every ten years.  But she also said it might also keep its bloom for up to a year.  Well, here's hoping for I think Miriam is just beautiful!


Tillandsia is a genus of around 540 species in the Bromeliad family (Bromeliaceae), found in the forests, mountains, and deserts, of Central and South America, and Mexico and the southern United States in North America. Tillandsia recurvata and another Bromeliaceae species on electric wires near San Juan de los Morros, Venezuela Flowering Tillandsia and daughter plant The thinner-leafed varieties grow in rainy areas and the thick-leafed varieties in areas more subject to drought. Moisture and nutrients are gathered from the air (dust, decaying leaves and insect matter) through structures on the leaves called trichomes. Tillandsia species are epiphytes (also called aerophytes or air plants) – i.e. they normally grow without soil while attached to other plants. Epiphytes are not parasitic, depending on the host only for support. The genus Tillandsia was named by Carolus Linnaeus after the Swedish physician and botanist Dr. Elias Tillandz (originally Tillander) (1640-1693).

Mosaic Monday~~Reflection
















~~~~~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~~~~~

My mom lives in an adult community in Montana that has the loveliest gardens.  And a walk in the early morning allows for a stroll through it in compelling silence.  From the vivid colors to the dewdrops on the roses, you find yourself reflecting on creation and it's beauty.

A Study in Clouds

I just could no resist the wonder of these clouds. They had such character, depth, color. I cannot paint or draw well, so I am in awe of such beauty. This is only a few of the glorious pictures on the this palate in the sky. All this took place on the 4th of July as we drove across South Dakota.

Have a grand day!

Just Got Home

Rocky Mountain National Park, July, 2009


We just arrived home from one of our most enjoyable trips to visit Mom. Usually we fly to Montana, but this year we chose to drive. As a result we got to visit with her, brother Phil and his family, Deb and Megan and Ron's family, Linda and Norm and Rhonda and John.

The route took us from Indiana through Iowa, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas and Missouri and back home. By the grace of God we had glorious weather and delightful interaction with all our family.

We went to the Little Big Horn National Battlefield (by-passed Mount Rushmore this time/really crowded for the 4th) and visited once again Rocky Mountain National Park in all its grandeur!!! Will have soooo many pics to share, but just wanted all to know I'm back and that an auto trip is still one of the best ways to see this wonderful nation!
