A Step Back,While Looking Forward

Today I will step back into last summer,while looking forward to the summer which is to come.
These pictures are mostly taken with my iPhone and I'm using my iPad to make the post.


I love watching the sky. It may be a few fluffy clouds in the sky,but they create a scene of beauty.


Each time I see a scene like this I just have to take a moment to stop and give thanks to God for giving me this moment.


Those billowy thunderstorm clouds are a beautiful sight.

Sometimes those same blue skies will have an Eagle gracefully soaring along. I don't expect that I will ever get tired of watching the Eagles in the sky.



The thought for today speaks directly to me:
Learn to appreciate what you have,before time makes you appreciate what you had.

  11. I love the sky shots--great shots with your phone. We don't get cell phone service in our part of Appalachian mountains so I haven't invested too much in a cell phone.

  16. i like that quote. i really do think it has taken me a few moments to get that in straight. i think some times we learn from others suffering ... does that sound harsh ... i hope not. but what i mean is when you see a friend or family member dying ... you see what they go through & you realize how you want to change or be different. does that make sense? i love your pics. amazing views. so awesome!!
