Hmmm… Amazing Creator

The sun sinks lower along the hillside revealing the frost kissed brilliance of maple and ash. Our Creator is amazing! 
Where is my coffee?


Hmmm… Not Alone

The sinking sun’s rays filter through the wispy white profile with outstretched arm against a pale blue sky. The lone image exudes compassion as it beckons those who see it to come near. 

I love how nature reminds us we are not alone.

Hmm… Melt Stress

A soft baby blue sky reflects off the snow
While eaves drip and ice cycles clunk.
A light fresh breeze tickles the nose
Making birds happily sing.
Let life’s stress melt away.

Hmmm… Proclaim His Glory

Canadian geese gracefully waddling

Wild turkey excitedly scratching

Red-bellied robins determinedly pecking

Budded branches wakefully stretching

Baby blue skies warmly shining

Excitedly proclaim the glory of their Creator

(Genesis 1, Psalm 66:4)

Hmmm… Gratitude – Not Just a Challenge but an Attitude Day 3

Gratitude as defined by Merriam-Webster: the state of being grateful; thankfulness

  1. I may not have “everything” I want but do have all I need. Living with excess has a tendency to pull our focus from what is truly important.
  2. The contented purring of feline companions is a reminder that simplicity in life can be priceless.
  3. I thought the warm splash of color in the flowerbed was washed away by the sudden deluge a few weeks ago. Yet, there they are standing tall, Black-eyed Susans with their faces raised to the sky.

Hmmm… My Rock


The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer ; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust ; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Psalm 18:2


Hmmm… A Haiku

Inspired by my love of feeding and watching wild birds, I decided to try my hand at a haiku, a short poem that uses sensory language to capture a feeling or image.

One crimson feather;

In search of better fodder

A cardinal flies on.
