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.

Molly's BWCAW Camping Photos

Dan took the eldest three children on their annual fall camping trip this past weekend. I LOVE seeing Molly's pics when they come back, and maybe when Dani is old enough for the trip I'll even go with them. For now it's such a blessing to stay home with the littlest and spend some time with just her. It seems that everyone blossomed during this weekend. The kids came back so excited and confident. It was really fun to see. Littlest really benefited from some time with her mom too.


  1. What a great treat; camping with Dad! I can't wait until our little girl is old enough to do that with her Dad (and maybe give Mom a weekend "off"!) :)

  2. oh-I miss going up north to the woods---you have a beautiful daughter that looks suspiciously like her mother---what is that thing? [ pic.#4 ]

  3. Beautiful photos, makes me miss home and the trips we took!

  4. CR- Weekends off are great! :)
    Judy- It's some type of a mushroom. We've never seen anything like it before either.
    Erin- One day soon... And this winter, I'll be wishing I was there!

  5. Beautiful photos! So relaxing. I bet they had a great time, and what a fabulous experience to be with Dad. :)

  6. Although I can't carry a tune in a bucket with a lid on it, imagine me singing, "Mem-or-ies are made of this . . . !"
