morning splendor




He has been looking forward to this morning all week... his first outing with the Young Birders Club. We woke before dawn, dressed in layers, and headed out on our way, full of anticipation... with hot chocolate to sustain us.


The morning sun skittered about the leaves... the shrill sounds of the slough came alive... the twittering birds said good morning. In every direction, there was beauty. Who but You could fill our senses with such amazement...

...Falling in love with the Earth is one of life's great adventures.

Ahhh... this is a WONDERFUL post.... there is nothing finer than getting up early and going out into the Father's creation. I love the gaze on your son's face in that last picture! What a great day it must have been! Fabulous pictures! :-)
