Our Majestic, Creative God

I've been remiss in posting here the last few weeks. A shortage of both time and focus are to blame, I'm afraid. Last January (2011) God let me know that the focus of my life in 2011 will be my family; the first four months of this year have verified that message for me. Please pray for me as God sends family matters  my way, that I will handle them with grace, love and joy.

I have been able to squeeze in some time learning to use my beautiful new camera that my DH gave me. I LOVE it! I have some (hopefully) paying projects tumbling around in the back room of my mind so that, one day, the camera will ultimately pay for itself.

[Hmmmm...sounds familiar. Didn't I think something like that way back when I started writing for publication?]

I'm caught up in the beauty of spring in our neck of the woods, so I'm gladly sharing some of it with you. I hope you not only enjoy the photos, but that the beauty of Creation around us causes you to stop to praise and worship our Majestic, Creative God.

Blessings, dear writing friends.

Amen! and Amen!

Hi Jean,

Thanks for sharing your spring photos. I especially love the butterfly and bee ones. They'd make a lovely wall display, notecards, etc. I bet you could sell your art!

Congrats on the new camera, Jean -- beautiful photos! I'd like to get a better camera some day, too.

All the best with all your family issues. (You must be overloaded because you mention 2012 a couple of times in your post. Am thinking you meant 2011?) Take care!
