What A Beautiful Day!

Wow, after enduring an extended winter the season has finally changed and it is simply wonderful! This weekend has been a gift from God! I'm off to enjoy more of this fabulous weather but wanted to share a few pics captured yesterday after my morning photo session. Be blessed and keep shooting!

Prayers for the Families

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
-Psalm 91:1-2

My prayers go out to all of the families in Virginia and I ask The Holy Spirit to comfort and minister to them as only He can.

It's Spring! No, it's Winter! No, now it's Spring! But, it's still snowing! I know, but it is April!

What is going on? This is what I woke up to yesterday. We woke up to snow, sleet and slush. It was one of the most difficult commutes I've seen. It's April 11th already and it's Tennis season. But, it's still snowing outside. There must be something BIG on the other side of the winter season for Old Man Winter to fight soo hard to stay around. As T.D. Jakes would say, "Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready!"

The Wonders of Nature

Have you ever taken a moment to stop and just "smell the flowers?" In our hectic "gotta have it yesterday why are you moving so slow" world we often miss appreciating all of the beauty that surrounds us everyday. I've had to do a real "gut" check and make some major changes in my life as I was getting caught-up in the "hussle and bussle" of daily life. It wasn't easy as it meant saying goodbye to some old friends and relationships, but I am soo glad that I did.

I don't believe God created us to do nothing but work ourselves to death and then die. No! He created this entire world for us to rule, manage and enjoy. And, if you will just take a few minutes to stop and look around, you will discover that everything God created is beautiful in its own way. In fact, I'm finding that the more I stop to "smell the roses" the more the roses minister to my soul. I don't know if I'm getting this across "just right" but I've learned that God's love for us is soo great that He even made the plants, animals, sky, sun, wind - all of His creation - to bless us just by looking at it.

Yesterday was "Resurrection Sunday" as we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Make a point this week to take a moment to stop, reflex, rest, pray and observe all of God's creation around you. If you do, you will soon find that God will start resurrecting many of the dreams, hopes and aspirations that were lost due to the busyness of life. Just a few thoughts that I hope will bless you. Enjoy your life, it is the only one you have!
