Peaceful Pictures

Peaceful volcano...

Saturdays are peaceful and relaxing. A chance to spend time with friends and family and enjoy the time together. As I look at this picture of me sitting by Mount St. Helens in Washington State, USA, I remember how peaceful I felt and the joy that I encountered when I saw new life springing up in the path of destruction where the volcano erupted in 1980. I went to this same spot when I was 12 and I remember looking down and not seeing much greenery. It looked quite messy with fallen trees and damaged earth. Some of it was still like that when I returned as an 18 year old. But it was wonderful to see vegetation sprouting up and new signs of life.

I think it is great to see how seasons change from the cold winter with the barren trees, to a blossoming, full and vibrant spring with new life all around. I wanted to share some of my pictures from the States of examples of this beauty that we see in the places around us. Places of peace and calm. I want to dance, sing and celebrate the wondrous gift of creation.

Hi! It's nice to see you here! A little about me: I am a Christian who loves Jesus. I am blessed with a loving husband Joel and we have a baby on the way. My time is often spent writing, planning a meal around dessert, looking after the home, visiting others or having others visit me, laughing, reading a good book, seeing new places, going for walks in the country, dancing and singing to music, and preaching behind my ironing board with the bible open on it (it's the right height & nobody's watching, I hope).

I Would Love To Hear From You!
