Winter's Quiet Views

This tree catches the last rays of the sun.....trying to ward off the chill maybe?

The earth recieves once again........

Winter's Holy hush....

Touches with frost-tipped fingers

We gaze at the last bit of light before taking the road home.....

Tis the Season

Wishing you peace......

many moments of joy......

and a heart filled with hope,

and don't forget.......a little dance now and then lifts the spirits.

A very blessed Christmas to all, reflecting on what our Savior has done for us.

Where two or more are gathered........

"On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink." John 7:37

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me."  Revelation 3:20

"People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God." Luke 13:29

Happy faces around a table....conversation and laughter shared with friends and family........not the stress we have manufactured around it.....this is what God desires for us, especially this time of year.

"For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20

Come to Me.....

 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,

...........and you will find rest for your souls

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Even so, come Lord Jesus.....

My Superstitions

Yesterday we took a walk around the old Goldfield is literally minutes from the house.

All the tourists were there, along with a sprinkling of locals who are wistful about the old West

and how it was back was good to see it through other eyes.

and towering over them....the Superstition mountains. I have claimed them, since they greet me each day......and I greet them too.

I love the fuzz on this guys ears.....

Monterey Views

On my 2 month off sabbatical last year, one of the places I went was here....

Walking the boardwalk at dusk

Jellyfish that look like glass.....

Ready for lift-off , I caught this guy taking off......

Every morning and evening the seals lounging close by on the shore, barked their greetings.

While out walking....

On foot, you can see things you would never see while driving by......

In the rain, we ducked into this Restaurant where I had the best Mexican dish I have ever had in my life......crab stuffed prawns.

I can still taste them.......more than a month later.

The rain that washed over the area has left with a glow of pink trailing behind it......

All photos taken in Moss Landing, California one of my new favorite places
