Wednesday's winners!


I took my camera along for a stroll with Luke the other
day. It was so "calm" and the colors were so lovely.  I
couldn't help but look up and give praise!

Nice when you look up and see this, too...




Lovely Photo - Wordless or Not-So-Wordless Wednesday at Aspire




And, being calmed in that amazing moment, made 
me think of other calm/serene/peaceful places...
like the edge of the ocean.

I grew up going to the beach, and still dearly 
love everything about it.  Sharing it with my boys 
has been an amazing blessing, and I will never 
forget Luke's first reaction.  At a mere 15-months 
old, he stood in awe...



The sparkle in his eye was breathtaking.

Dina, these are lovely. I love the sand on Luke; how long did it take to get it out from under his little neck creases? :)

Kate said...

The picture of Luke took my breath away. I let an amazing weather day pass by me...if it's nice tomorrow I'm committing that I'm going out with my camera! I've been visiting all these sites to see all these amazing fall pictures...I need to get out there!

Gorgeous photos! We don't get to experience leaves changing in these parts, but I couldn't agree with you more about the beach. The beach is my serenity.

The sky made a perfect 'backdrop' for those wonderful colors! ...and that shot of Luke is just adorable! :)

Rachel said...

very sweet second photo. There's something magical in little one's eyes.

Dawn said...

I really, really need to get outside and take some pictures before all our leaves turn brown and fall from the trees. They are already starting to do that here.

I adore that picture of Luke. All kinds of precious.

Jamie said...

That shot of the trees - heavenly!

He's a cutie pie too. I too love the beach and there is so much to be in awe about.

Have a terrific WW. :)

I love the beach photo!! We love the beach SO much... I wish we could live nearer to the beach! a warmer one would be lovely too!! Do you know the hymn "Have you Seen Jesus My Lord" ... It comes to my mind every time I step on the beach!

Colleen (Shibley Smiles) said...

I wish we had trees like that, I do miss fall in South Florida, but the trade is the beach which I love more!

I'm following you now, thanks for your comment on my WW
