Easter Sunday April 20 2014



He IS Alive - in every sunrise, every sunset, every blooming flower and tree, Our Creator, Savior and Redeemer - suffered greatly for you and me. Every morning when we wake is a celebration of the Resurrection that bridged the gap from death to life - from cross to crown, from being forever separated to spending eternity in His presence. Thanking God this morning for His amazing love that my finite mind has such trouble grasping - but believing because of it and who He is - death has been conquered for each one of us.

Happy Resurrection Sunday!

April 5, 2014


I have taken lots of photos of this tree. Just standing in the middle of a field all alone. Watching it change thru the seasons.

We change thru the seasons too. Each chapter of life carries us to the next. This season of my life has been a challenge. Prayerfully I find myself considering what will come next.

 I am a morning person. Love to get up early and spend time in scripture, writing, putting photos together. Since I lost my job last June -  I feel like my life has been turned upside down. My 'long term subbing gig' has been a blessing, as I am still getting a paycheck, but due to the nature of 'sub pay' I have had to schedule a lot of 'after work'  work.

In a way, not only was my job taken, but in someways I feel as though my life, as I knew it, was too. The joy of photography and and creating 'intelligent expressions' posts has been put on hold. Internet friends and blogging - have been moved very low on my list of things to take care of each week.  I can't wait for June. I am anxious about what is going to come next.

I feel like I am going thru the motions of life every day - but no longer finding joy in the moments - but just getting thru.

I am hoping in the next 'season' I find joy again.  As this school year begins to wrap up - I am intentionally searching for the joy in each day. The excitement of one son starting to see glimpses of his dreams becoming reality, and another graduating high school and moving on to his next chapter (whatever that may be). My middle guy is still searching and I am prayerfully waiting to see how God will shine on him in the days ahead.

Forgive me for my lack of attention to our internet connections. I find I barely have any connections with anyone - outside of work and my  immediate family. But prayerfully am waiting for God to reveal how we will move thru the season to come.
