E & G

This is Ginger.  Bold, striking, and sassy.

This is Ethel.  She thinks Ginger gets too much attention.  She's probably right.

Ginger's favorite thing is a piece of sparkly star-wrapped wire, all wound up 
and tossed across the room for her to chase and then gnaw on.

Gnawing in full swing :)

Photographing living things is my best and my favorite :)  People come first, of course, but after that animals and nature are the most enjoyable to capture.  
All these different subjects inspire me to praise and adore our Maker!

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia!  Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!

O praise Him!  O praise Him!
Alleluia!  Alleluia!  Alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise Him!  Alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One!

Have a blessed weekend!

of cats and flowers

Last month, I took a road trip to visit my sister Janna.  We had a positively marvelous time together, talking, laughing, making and eating amazing food, playing with her two kittens, and walking around town.  Unfortunately, I was too busy sharing her sense of humor to take pictures of Janna, but came home with some stellar shots of Ethel and Ginger.  

They took an instant shine to me...

And to our farmer's market flowers...

And to my camera :)

Thanks for sharing your home, food, and kitties with me, Janna!  
It was a delightful trip, and eye miss ewe.

Fruit Salad

Our produce order this week was overflowing with the most colorful and luscious fruits I've seen in a long time!  I spent this morning in the kitchen, making fruit salad and cobbler from our new bounty.
This juicy experience was not to be complete without pictures, so here's a taste for you :)

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law."
                                                               Galatians 5:22-23

Earlier this spring...

Just a handful of pictures I took earlier this spring.  I was really pleased with how they turned out!  
I feel like I've hit my stride with photography :)

"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
 Praise the LORD!" 
Psalm 150:6

"there are FLOWERS down here!!!!!"

I went through a time last month when I was extremely discouraged.  In the midst of this, my family randomly showered me with gifts!  It was such a sweet reminder of God's knowledge of my struggles, His love for me as His child, and His plans for my ultimate good.

"But now, thus says the LORD, your creator, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel,
"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you.  
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you."
Isaiah 43:1-2

One night, Dad came home with a ruby-red bunch of my favorite Ranunculus flowers!

Ellie surprised me one afternoon with this sweet note on my wall :)  She is so creative!

Even more ranunculus!  This bunch was from Ellie.

My favorite roses--ORANGE!  From Libby, who knows me so well.

My joke during this time became, "One nice thing about being at the bottom of the barrel 
is that there are FLOWERS down here!"  :)
