THIS is my Father’s world…


And He has transplanted us into the heart or its grandeur.

We came on Monday to survey this our new hometown–

and to find a place in it to park our bike and bake our bread…IMG_20160330_133543781

While Jim was at work today earning our keep I ventured out to see the lay of the land and BEHOLD…




It is grand; we feel so blessed.


And incredibly, on a hillside overlooking the grandeur, God had preserved a sweet suite just for us.

A place to park our bike and be at home, in our Father’s world.

It’s official. We have moved!

[Let me know if you’d like our new address…]

The mountains melt like wax before the LORD of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all the peoples see his glory…

Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name! Ps.97:5,6,12

The mountains are full up with an eight foot base of snow,IMG_20160302_141629755


but spring is coming…P1190894

Snowy stillness is giving way to the sound of water rushing, gurgling, dripping as it dissolves winter’s icy grip.


Birds sing again.  First robins.  Chickadees too. The ravens are no longer alone.

The quiet glory of snow has given way to the silent wonder of swelling buds P1190887

with their reminder that winter’s stark glory will soon be surpassed.

I am watching and waiting…P1190900

And I am quite lichen the green of it! ( :
