“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him… Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” (Isaiah 30:18, 21)

I have numerous stories to share from the last three weeks, my problem is I do not know where to begin. With this dilemma, I have decided to share my favorite picture taken at the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, B.C. Canada, to start the process.

It is good to be back home the only problem is I came back to lots of work. It is overwhelming to start back into routine, it was great to be free for a few weeks. My goal over the next several weeks is to share parts of the journey that refreshed my soul. I look forward to being part of the blogging community once again. The trip to B.C. was the start of a new beginning in many ways. God is always gracious with second chances.

The Butchart Gardens were amazingly beautiful even in the pouring rain.

Jesus thank you for how you restore our soul even when it is raining in our life. The sun always seems to find away to shine through even on dull rainy days, creating beauty for those who have eyes to see. Thank you for the love that is always being poured out upon our life. In your name I pray. Amen.

"We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey." Teilhard de Chardin

Love to all,

P.S My new camera works great!

thank you Cindy and Jordon for your comments. If you double right click on the picture of the tulips you can actually see the rain water on the flowers.

Hi, Robin:
I'm glad you had a safe trip and that the Lord filled your time away with so much beauty. Love the pic and I saw the water beads. I look so forward to lessons you learn on your journey. I'm experiencing some rain in my life now, but praising God anyway. Hope you will post more photos!

Beautiful flowers! Yes, your new camara does works great :0) Purple is my favorite color. Welcome back to blogland. I trust your end of semester went well and you finished your classes with a flair. I have a four week break and I'm doing home remodels, a welcome trade off: muscle work for brain work. I look forward to hearing about your journey.

Welcome Back Dear Friend,

It is so glad to have you back here. I missed you! The flowers are beautiful and it sounds like you were blessed while away. I'm anxious to see and hear much more about your time away. Since I'll never get to visit British Columbia, I will be able to experience it through your lense.

I love photography. Do you mind me asking what kind of camera you are the proud owner of? It takes beautiful pictures.

Love you,
