Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Beautiful Springtime Photos

I think my eldest daughter has a wonderful eye for setting up beautiful photographs. She took these late in the afternoon yesterday. When she showed them to me this morning I was so impressed! I decided to forgo the basically boring photos of plants struggling to grow in my gardens for these. You'll have to wait for the pathetic images of baby broccoli. I know you're disappointed (not), but hang in there. I have a feeling you'll be able to see more that a few pathetic garden photos this year (but I hope and pray that I'm wrong). :) Have a great week!


  1. Is that lake superior? must be since you live in MN.,but I wish I was sitting along side that wonderful waterfall---your daughter did a great job. I miss going up to the lake so bad I can taste it.

  2. These really are beautiful photographs, and what better place to live for a budding photographer?! Thanks for the pretty photos!

  3. Wow! I'd say she really does have an "eye" for photography! Do I see a nice little camera of her own in this little gal's future??
