The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed. ~ Albert Einstein, Living Philosophies

I lost my mom three years ago November 29.  To this day, my heart breaks.  But to this day, my heart has joy for her in her peace.  Never mind what I would have wanted.  She received God’s grace in a very sudden, but very painless death.  I will miss her always and I will always cherish the years I was blessed to have her as my own.  I love you, Mom!

A neighbor recently invited me down to shoot some pictures of the blossoms on a barrel cactus he’s had since it was a seedling.  These were the first blossoms on this particular cactus.  It’s 35 years old.  Desert gardens take patience!

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. ~ George Washington Carver
