Inspired by . . . giving thanks


Focusing on Thanksgiving as a Lifestyle, not just a holiday.




We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers 1 Thes 1:2


Trying to practice what I preach today. . . . I’m thankful for . . .


. . .  Kim Klassen and all the beautiful people that link up over at her café every week. Kim’s generosity with both her textures and her knowledge has had a big part in developing my love for photography and photo art. Thank you, Kim, you are a true artist.





. . .  the amazing Jen and Amy, and all the others who made the SDG Retreat possible. I know what it takes to pull off an event like this, and they did an incredible job. Thank you, Jen and Amy {et al} for giving so much of yourselves this past weekend.


We didn’t have the best weather, but these images were taken around the beautiful retreat center in Elgin, Texas . . . between the raindrops.

  9. Ive seen a Beauty berry once but didn't know what it was i love the tractor image, so homey.

  10. Hi June! Welcome back from your retreat! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful experience there. And it's always inspiring to hear what people are thankful for. It makes me reflect on my own blessings.
    That photo of the berries and sticks/leaves is so pretty, it looks like they were sewed together.
    I am so thankful for family. I have been richly blessed.

  11. I'm so glad you got to go to the retreat! Your photos are so beautiful and inspirational. That Beautyberry against the dark bark of the tree is amazing.
