One Year Ago, September 1

One year ago today,I made my first tentative blog post.
I was not sure if I really wanted to do this or even how to do it.
My desire from the very start of this blog has been to point towards God,
by showing the beauty of His handiwork.
If even one person has been drawn to see God through nature
I am satisfied that this blog has been successful.

I never for one minute thought that blogging would result in finding friends.

Boy,was I wrong.I now feel like I have friends all over the world.

I may not have met you in person,but feel a connection to you.

It has been a privilege to pray for many of you who have been or are going

through difficult times.

Thank-you to each one who visits regularly,

your comments brighten my day.

I am looking forward to many more visits to your blogs and hope to do more posts for quite awhile.

This is too much fun to quit any time soon.

Thanks again for your friendship,it means a lot to me.


  1. Wow Ruth, a whole year. How time does fly when you're having so much fun!
    I have enjoyed yours and Jake's marvelous pictures. Looking forward to many more visits with you two. I almost feel like I know you even though we are miles apart and thanks so much for showing all of us your beautiful section of Canada..
    God bless you and Jake.

  2. Is it only a year? I feel I have known you for years. Your tentative efforts have gone from strength to strength as has yur photographe. I've only been in the game three months longer than you and just assumed you were a seasoned veteran.
    Thank you for sharing your world and beautiful photography with us and keep it coming!
    Congratulations on your first successful year in the bloggosphere.

  19. Ruth, Wow!! One year has come and gone. I think I also started blogging in Sept.. I will have to check. I remember the first time you visited my blog..and left such a nice comment..I can't believe it has been a year already..
    I love coming to your blog to see all the wonderful photos you and Jake caught with your 'guys' have such an artist's eye and have captured so many wonderful and amazing photos or so many diff things. My fav I think was the Snowy Owl sitting on the top of a pole or on a power line??..Wow! blew my mind that you got to see that and took such a great picture of it.
    Congrats to both of you!!
