Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

He Speaks through Nature - Note Card Party

I am running to the party. I just didn't want to miss this month. 
 Is there anything more refreshing, when life is busy, than time with friends and a party?  
This Note Card is to remind me that even as life transitions there still needs to be time to smell the flowers.
This little one will not stay little long....I need to find the balance.
God meets us in nature.  As Benjamin said, "where you go and there isn't anything made by man, that's nature!"
The cross that is noticed in this picture wasn't made by man...it is by nature, for those who can
see it and God met me there.
Again...He speaks through nature.  Even in the storms of life He brings beauty.  We just have to look up and see things through His eyes.
There are times to record what the Lord has made. Drawing or writing allows us to 
document His goodness and beauty.  
May I stop and take the time to do just that.

May you all enjoy what He speaks to you through nature and this spring season.
My word for the year is "transition"...I had no idea how many transitions there would be.
So my Note Cards today remind me of the past lessons, as I continue to walk this new journey of transitions.

Lovely photos!

Debbie said...

If these had been posted by any other poster, I still would have thought they were wonderful. Because they were posted by you and at such a time as this, I love them even more. My favorite it the first one, but I love the thing that you have captured in all four that is so much more than the 2 dimensional photo.

I wish you know how much I pray for you. I am waiting for the day that I get to stand at the break of that sky in photo number 3 and sing thanks for the hugeness.

You have created an altar to the moment and the memory sharing so beautifully what each photo represents. They are all wonderful! Praying for you and trusting that God has something big, big, big for you in these transitions you pass through. Keep looking up!

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful photos and sentiments. Have a blessed day! Pamela

Cindy said...

Love this! It's so applicable to what I read this morning about God as creator of nature and how nothing is by chance.

Praying for you and your family today...

Jan said...

Your photos are really sweet....showing off the beauty around you and that sweet boy! Love him in the field of flowers!
Happy week to you and hope you get a nice thunderstorm, too!

Beautiful post, Janette. It really touched my heart. Thank you.

Lisa said...

Janette,
This HAS been a year of transitions! For everyone. I am trying hard to trust the Lord as I leap into the changes. This is a good reminder to see things seated with Him in heavenly places.

Sharon said...

I loved your *postcards*, Janette. I love the first one of Benjamin - how you captured that special moment in time. And yes, they grow up too fast.

God is certainly bringing a lot of transitions to your life! It's quite a ride He has you on! But I can't wait to see what He does, and your beautiful way of telling us all about it!

GOD BLESS!

Sandy said...

Everything picture and word so true and bringing such glory to the Lord, our Creator.
Always thinking of you, Janette, and praying for you and yours.

Christine said...

Picture Perfect is the sub-title for the post!

(I have been keeping you and your family in my prayers.)

Maryann said...

I love the first photo of Benjamin...needs to be framed somewhere. Love the story you are telling through these photos...please know I am keeping you and your family in prayer

Your notecards are BEAUTIFUL. And Benjamin is wise. I think I'll always remember his definition of nature. Then of course I'll picture him smelling the flowers and looking into beautiful heaven.. Thank him for me. :)

Blessings, Debbie

Rebecca said...

Bless your heart! How good that you paused to see, record, reflect....

Karen and Gerard said...

I must say, I think this is the most interesting collection I've seen this month. I especially like the last one.

Amen and amen... the transitions continue. Your family remains in my heart and prayers... blessings ~ tanna
