Chihuly Wonders

Found such joy at the Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanical Gardens. I was awed by the colors and the shining beauty of the blown glass intermingled with the breathtaking flowers, all in full bloom. Wow. If you ever get the chance to see his work, don’t miss it, go.

Until I made peace with God I never experienced joy. I thought I had…my wine made me happy and numbed my hurts. I partied hard and thought I was having a good time. But there is nothing in this world like the warm, melting, sweet peace of God way, way down deep in your soul. Better than any drink or drug. I took a big swig of that love-joy this Saturday as I “enjoyed” this fabulous display of man-made and God-made art. Delicious.

So that by God’s will I may come to you with joy and be refreshed in your company.
Romans 15:32

Indianapolis 500 Extra

We laughed at the pre-race pastime that floated into this shot at the Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway, so I chose it for the Extra photo challenge.  I was thrilled to see my favorite driver, Rick Mears, a four-time winner and #2 Indy driver of all time, walk up the aisle next to us to spot for the Pennzoil team. It was a great race!

A Split Second in Wisconsin

Chef’s Hat Cafe in Ephraim, Wisconsin is my Split-Second Story submission.  We thoroughly enjoyed the charm of this delightful cafe’ with the back drop of Eagle Harbor. This was my first trip to Wisconsin and I was very impressed. The clear lakes, the green sloping hills, the towering trees, and the laid back way of life is the perfect prescription for tension and stress.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?
Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28 MSG

Spring Lilacs

Nothing says Spring to me more than lilacs. Their loveliness is only surpassed by that delicate, sweet smell.
