Corridors of Green

1433793396405

corridors of green
through a forest of pines
each tree seldom seen

This is the road I travel each day to and from work. It is amazing to witness the transformation of the trees as the seasons change. From autumn’s colors to the barren winter and back to the brilliance of spring and early summer. Live deliberately and have a blessed day!

It’s Christmas Time!

It’s Christmas time
From rainy overcast days
To forever blue skies
And clear sunny days

It’s Christmas time
Towering evergreens stand tall
They cover the land
Where snow scarcely falls

It’s Christmas time
Upon the mountain peaks
Lying in silent repose
Their transcendence we seek

It’s Christmas time…
In the Pacific Northwest

Yellow Brilliance

Around the bend, on a narrow road.

Comes the end, of all we have known

The colors glow, in the autumn twilight.

The brilliant yellows, pierce the night.

Poem 22 of 31 for October Poetry Writing Month, #OctPoWriMo. A rainy gray day in the Pacific Northwest has me thinking of sunshine, warmth and color. Let your light shine! ~M

Time To Get Away

I come here to find myself, it is so easy to get lost in the world. ~Author Unknown

My Private Little Mountain Bike Heaven

Do you have place to get away?  To be alone?  

To find yourself by losing yourself?

“After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray ; and when it was evening, He was there alone.”
Matthew 14:23 NAS

Just a few photographs of spring time colors that are occurring throughout our yard here in the Pacific Northwest!

The sun is shining, the sky is a brilliant blue and the trees, flowers and plants are awakening from their winter’s sleep.

In addition this is Easter weekend and only fitting we take a moment to pause and remember that our Savior is risen!

Death has been conquered by life, darkness has been overwhelmed by the light and hate has fallen at the feet of love.

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend and a joyous spring.  Celebrate the moments and treasure each and everyone.

“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.”  ~Virgil Kraft

God bless!  ~M
