Springtime on the Ohio

It's been a wonderful weekend and as I was sitting at the computer I thought I'd just take some time to play with some photos!  Yesterday we took a walk to the river.  It was about 3:00 in the afternoon and the weather was incredible.  I got this photo as we were walking back home.   I'm not sure why, but there is a beautiful orb in the lower left.  Thought it was a problem with my camera or lens, but none of m other photos taken at that time have the same artifact.  At any rate, it was just the most wonderful day to walk!



So I took the above photo and thought I'd play with PicMonkey to see what I'd get.  Well, there is a new effect called Edge Sketch and the result is below.  That is the closest I will every get to "painting" an abstract picture.  And, it was fun!!




Along the way, I took some other photos of the Spring that has finally arrived here.  All of nature's most beautiful colors were on display!  Indeed, it was grand!

Thanks be to God!

River Walk



On a river walk
It was beauty all aglow
Sky was shimmering

The glow of the sky
 Mirroring its very light
Lights us on our way

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God




A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints” ~Wilfred Peterson

I'll be gone on a great adventure for the next two weeks so I'll not be visiting you all until I return.  It's the adventure of a lifetime for me as I will be traveling to Italy.  So, if you will pray for me, I will be praying for all my friends who is on this blogging adventure with me.  So until I return, God be with you all!

Sunday Walk By the River


After Mass this morning Ron and I decided to a walk to the river.  Here in Newburgh is a lock and dam where the barges move up and down the river carrying coal, grain and oil.  


This morning we hit the jackpot.  There were barges coming and going.



Farther along on our walk we encountered some very lovely blossoms.  


We met this handsome Gentleman along the way, watching to make sure he safely crossed the road.





No walk is complete on a Sunday morning with out a stop at Ben and Pennys.  And this morning was no different.  Ron had a warm carmel apple cookie and I had maple walnut scone, both topped with a 
small scoop of vanilla ice cream



Then these flower pots reminded me that this is the last weekend in August and the door is now opening onto the an autumn porch. It has been a summer of saddness and joy for us but all in all God has been gracious.

Joy On the River




Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
Sitting on the River


And wishing for Spring!

    ~~~~
Life on the river
Must have be challenging
Not all romantic!

Lifting and toting
Loading the barges, hard work
but feeding family

Joy comes in the smiles
Satisfaction in the job
Joy in the child's hug!

~~~^j^~~~

Thanks be to God!!!
