Walking along the beach this weekend, I caught my husband snapping a picture of a strip of seaweed with the ocean in the background and it inspired me. I strolled a little further and became enamored with this beautiful piece, capturing Seaweed Glimmer. It’s the simple and unexpected that I love finding beauty in and what I most enjoy about photography.

Heading back into the valley after a late afternoon drive, God surprised us with a beautiful painted sky. Taken on a whim from the passenger seat car, this Spring Streaked Sunset, reminded me that God is ever-present, abounding with blessings, even on the toughest of days.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember, after a super rough day, that the evening doesn’t have to end poorly too, or that what happened today will continue into tomorrow. Our day can still have a lovely ending. And, it can begin anew at any moment.

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens every day can end beautifully

Fuel Your Walk Friday

Fuel your walk with some Jesus and Joe.

I love Jesus and I love me an iced cuppa fresh cold brew halved with vanilla almond milk. What better way to combine the two and perk up the beginning of your weekend, than to “Fuel Your Walk” with some Jesus and Joe. Once a week, I will be posting a little snippet, thought, or question to ponder in relation to your walk with Christ. So grab your favorite mug, pour yourself a delicious cuppa Joe and get comfy as you let this question percolate in your mind:

“Sometimes, the best medicine is to rest
and let God do the fighting for you.” -Dr. Michelle Bengtson

Are you letting Him nourish and replenish you?

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28

“Yes, my soul, find rest in God: my hope comes from him.” -Psalm 62:5

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33

Will you hold onto fear or trust God and choose to live fearlessly?

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -John 14:27

For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. -Isaiah 41:13

On Sunday, we took a short day trip. Strolling along the icy beach, I was lulled by the rolling waves. The artist in me began noticing the beauty in the simple-the thick sea foam with its perfect curves, and the patterns on the sand after each lapping wave was pulled back out into that vast ocean. It wasn’t the beautiful mountains off in the distance that caught my attention this time. Grabbing my camera, I snapped these minimalistic Sea Foam Simplicity shots.

The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. -Psalm 95:5

Itching to explore and find new places to shoot, we took a road less travelled this past Saturday. Now that the weather is warming up, back roads that have been covered in snow for months, have begun to melt, making travel easier. Coming upon this incredible overlook, I was able to capture Bear Mountain Pano. This hidden gem on the first day of spring was a spectacular find. As the thaw continues, I can’t wait to be given more access to God’s incredible creation so I can share fresh shots of spring with you.

It was so refreshing to get out into the cool, crisp air this weekend. It had warmed up quite a bit and was a whole 42 degrees. The snow was beginning to melt and we were blessed with sunshine and beautiful blue skies. Signs of spring and new hope were among us. It wasn’t difficult to snap some gorgeous shots of God’s incredible creation. Multi-Peak Pano was one of those that I was able to capture this past Saturday.

Know

Last night, I was awake until the wee hours of the morning. It wasn’t until just after 4am that I finally fell asleep. So, tonight I was looking forward to a full night’s slumber. My daughter’s breathing took a turn for the worse, however, and she started having an asthma attack just before bed. With her oxygen level dropping, I knew it was going to be a long night of me monitoring her every fifteen minutes.

And a long night, I can handle. Heck, having handled many long nights, I’m a pro. But, with the continual challenges we’ve been pounded with over the last several years, I am truly exhausted. As I prepared our girls’ schoolwork for tomorrow, I got lost in thought about the state of this world, the suffering so many are experiencing right now, and the weariness I’m feeling lately. I began spacing out. When my eyes came to focus, it happened to be on a copywork/handwriting worksheet I had pulled from a folder. A few minutes earlier when I had grabbed it, I hadn’t even noticed the verse that was on it, but it definitely caught my eye this time: Be still and know that I am God. The Bible verse, Psalm 46:10, is a well-known one. God spoke to me in that moment and somehow it hit me differently this time. When He told me to know-that I can rest assuredly in Him, I felt it. It was like a breath of fresh air. I could breathe and know.

And so can you! We can be still and confident-unmoved when all about us the turbulence of life attempts to throw us around, because He said to be still and know that He Is God. He has it all under control, even when the world rages and life feels out of control. And, for those struggles that pile up and start weighing us down? Let’s not forget to hand over the weight of what we cannot control, to Him.

Mountain in the Middle

I absolutely love photography! It is both a creative outlet and passion that brings me joy. So, each Monday, I will post at least one photo of God’s majestic marvels I’ve captured. See and be in awe of His creations and beauty! 

I snapped this Mountain in the Middle at one of our favorite spots in Alaska. It’s a beautiful campground with an incredible view. Just a stop off the highway, with a large frozen lake, and grandiose mountains, there are few visitors in the winter. We often have this place all to ourselves, making it extremely quiet and peaceful. This place of solitude is where I can really feel the presence of God.
