Grazing on Goodness

Grazing on Goodness, was an image I snapped in Colorado a few years back. It’s one of my favorite horse shots and reminded me of one I recently shared.

When I posted that photo a few weeks ago, a brother in Christ, Alan, (you can check out his blog here) made an excellent connection between these breathtaking creatures and our walk as Christians. He asked me “do we graze in His presence as we go through our day?” Like horses graze in the pasture throughout the day, we too, should graze in God’s presence. It’s not enough to get just one helping of Him in the morning or evening. We must turn our eyes towards Him and remain in His presence all day long, so that He can sustain us.

God is present as my helper; the Lord sustains my life. -Psalm 54:4

for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. -Psalm 107:9

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

new dawn

An animal lover, I am naturally drawn to God’s incredible creatures. I find myself intrigued by their beauty and their interesting personalities. They are one of my favorite subjects to capture. This horse, was Blue Sky Grazin’ in Colorado, a few years back, when my passion for photography really began to blossom.

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.

Mountain in the Middle

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.

Elevation Sunset

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!

We set out this past Saturday on a little day trip to check out a small town we had never been to. Feeling a sense of adventure, we figured it was time to see what this small town of Hope, Alaska, was all about. That’s right! The town is actually called Hope. With all the challenges we’ve come face to face with lately, it seemed especially fitting to explore this old gold rush town, but maybe not in the dead of winter. Our trip was stopped short, due to a 10-degree temperature drop and an extremely icy highway separating us from the our destination.

And while we were disappointed that we did not land in Hope, Alaska, this last weekend, God kept us safe. The town we hoped to reach was just that-a town. We know that our real hope is in the Lord and there will never be anything that can separate us from His love.

Heading back, I captured Elevation Sunset. As the sun dropped behind the peaks, hues of blue colored the mountains and shades of gray were swirled in the cloudy sky above.

No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:39

Lone and Charred

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!

This past weekend, we took a risk, a turn down a mystery road leading to a beautiful overlook. Amongst a backdrop of several snowy peaks, there was this tree, Lone and Charred, standing after a terrible forest fire. It was one of the strong ones, a survivor.

Maybe you have been thrown into the fiery flames of life’s circumstances and you too, are a survivor. Let this be a reminder that God can still create beauty out of your life. Your story isn’t over yet!

I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. -Isaiah 48:10
