“I can enjoy society in a room;
but out of doors, nature is company enough for me.”
William Hazlitt, 1778-1830
English writer and literary critic
”I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere
and don’t notice it….People think pleasing God is all God care about.
But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.”
Linear Trail, Erwin
“There is a vast, rich reality of obedience beneath the feet of disciples…
For obedience is not a stodgy plodding in the ruts of religion,
it is a hopeful race toward God’s promises.”
Eugene Peterson, 1932-
“A Long Obedience in the Same Direction:
Discipleship in an Instant Society”
”The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside,
somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God.
Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be…”
Anne Frank, 1929-1945
Jewish girl who wrote a diary while in hiding with her family
during the German occupation of the Netherlands during WWII
Sorry about the long hiatus, friends. I’ve just finished three years of graduate school and a very heavy year of writing a dissertation. Happy to say I finished my doctorate in higher ed administration in May and am slowly recovering and regaining my life back. Hope to be posting more regularly and hopefully out soon replenishing my photos and my soul with the beauty of God’s creation. Thanks for hanging with me. Enjoy!
