Wedding Victory

Victory is the joy of finding someone wonderful to love for a lifetime!

We celebrate great victories because they do not come easily. This marriage came to me after years of disappointing dates, pressing through hopeless and lonely nights, facing fears of intimacy, overcoming the panic of losing autonomy, putting past hurts behind me, and wrestling to discover God’s will for my life. We celebrated our victory of love in a fairy tale Colorado wedding on Oct 11th, 2015!


My beloved is mine and I am his.
Song of Songs 2:16

Ornately Brilliant

If you ever get a chance to see Cartier’s Brilliant exhibit, go! It is breathtaking and includes jewelry from princes, princesses, Hollywood movie stars and more. I’m a bit late for the Ornate challenge but better late than never, right?

Especially in light of the inexplicable horror in France yesterday I thought this scripture was appropriate for today’s post…

The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked goes out. Proverbs 13:8-10 NET

Colorado Office Grid

I had serious bicycle accident in July and haven’t done a blog post since. It feels great to get back into photography! I took this shot of my office and then looked at this week’s photo challenge. Thought it fit the bill well.  In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Hebrews 1:10 (NIV)

Doors in Colorado Springs

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. John 10:9

If you are ever in Colorado Springs, make sure you visit The Broadmoor. Built at the turn of the century, it drips with elegance, luxury, and grandeur. If you can’t afford to stay, have dinner or drinks in one of the restaurants overlooking the lake and be swept away by the romance of an era gone by. Some of the lovely doors captured during our recent trip are perfect for the “Door” challenge.

I also included the iron door of the Rockledge Bed and Breakfast in nearby Manitou Springs. Built in the late 1800’s, it is a romantic combination of breathtaking Colorado beauty and Italian charm. We were greeted with wine and cheese, were treated to a delicious breakfast on the patio overlooking Pikes Peak and had fantastic, romantic getaway weekend!

Intricate Saloon

The intricate interior of the fantasticly fun Bucksnort Saloon in Sphinx Park, Colorado. Built in the late 1800’s this building was originally a mercantile store that served the men of the Denver and South Park railroad. Bring a dollar or your business card and leave a legacy! 


How great are your works, O Lord!
Your plans are very intricate!
Psalm 92:5 (NET)

Vail In A Blur

Vail, Colorado as we sped past on Interstate 70, which crosses the Rocky Mountains.


Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely,
just as God now knows me completely.
1st Corinthians 13:12 (NLT)

For the Blur Photo Challenge.
