& Run Towards It


Get quiet
& listen
to what is most
important
to you
& run towards it
with an open
heart.
~ Kay Foley

Wishing that you will find some time this weekend to be quiet and to listen.
Wishing you the courage to run.
Sursum corda! Lift up your heart.

The photos above were taken by my very talented sister-in-law, Lucy Lawson. You really should click on it and view it larger. The beach scene was taken at Honeyman State Park in Oregon. The other two were taken at Crater Lake, Oregon. Lucy gave these photos to me as a gift and I created the collage. She is a terrific photographer, isn't she? Crater Lake is a magical place, and my favorite place on earth. You know how God created the earth in six days, and on the seventh day, He rested? Well, Crater Lake is where He went to rest. It's that beautiful. An unknown wonder of the world.

i need to do this so much more than i do! especially with the summer here. it is the season to be romanced by Jesus through quiet time alone with Him in nature. i just have to get out of the house... :) thanks for sharing.

Those photos are beautiful. I'm a huge fan of black and white photography. And the quote...it certainly sums up why I need quiet time in this world.

Hello, friends. I wanted to write and say thanks for your comments. As Mark Twain said, "I could live for a month on a good compliment." So, thank you.

As I wrote, I was thinking about the opportunities for connecting that blogging provides. Take the five of us, we live in Georgia, Colorado, New York, Missouri, and somewhere in the US. All over the country, but we all need the same things. Peace. Beauty. Contentment. Time in nature. Connections with others. What a wonderful world.

Thank you for connecting.

Oldies, but Goodies
