The Exhilarating Activity Of Dream Building!  

The most fun aspect of our company is the emphasis on dreams. Where does excitement, hope and drive feature in life without goals and dreams? Yes, we all have a unique, God-given purpose, but our dreams and aspirations can certainly aid our purpose. My writing is one such activity (which also happens to encompass part of my purpose)–but I’m not talking about that today.

Today, I’m going balls-to-the-wall materialistic. It’s my Se guys, come on. Let me exercise my inferior function once in a while! It’s so dang fun!

I’m really not ashamed to admit enjoyment of the finer things in life. My husband is learning to dream, thanks to our leaders and the astounding array of resources we are privy to in this environment. Aaron, like so many others in this age of government control, inflation, and a dismal economy, believed he just wasn’t meant to enjoy luxury and a carefree lifestyle. But, praise God, no more!

We have taken the glorious initiative to begin the joyful, exciting process of dream building. This endeavor can manifest itself differently depending on what your unique dreams are. Do you want a huge dream home on ten acres? How about a top-of-the-line automobile? Do you aspire to travel to exotic destinations? Browse the  internet and check out luxury accommodations at all your favorite locales–look up activities and restaurants there! Go test drive that Range Rover, Corvette, or, in Aaron’s case, that Dodge Charger. Live your dreams, even if it feels silly or intimidating at first. With the correct mindset and the hard work necessary to achieve anything worthwhile, you will attain it! You can literally make your dreams come true! The only thing standing in your way–get ready for it–is you. YOU! Now go and settle into that hopeful, can-do attitude.  

Your mindset is truly half the battle to success.  

Aaron I have been dream building by touring gorgeous homes during open houses. They are all at least a million. Only one was $750-60,000. (That one had an indoor pool and hot tub, though! Yeah, baby!!) Of course, being a melancholic personality first and foremost, I’ve compiled a detailed list of must-haves in my dream home.

  • Stone facade
  • Sun room 
  • Hot tub (preferably indoor)
  • Decent acreage (1-3 minimum)
  • Master suite balcony 
  • Wrap around porch 
  • Luxury tub 
  • Two fireplace minimum 
  • Adequate space for books (a full on library isn’t necessary, but would be nice)
  • Walk-in closets in the master 
  • Deck or patio 
  • Many trees 
  • Full bar

Mesmerizing Nature (Twitter)

 I’m sure there are more items, but this is a pretty concise list. I’ve always had a proclivity for beauty and luxury, and dreamed I’d have it–I just never knew exactly how to obtain it. I am thrilled that I’m finally learning the know-how through LIFE’s fabulous resources!

 I’m starting a book tomorrow entitled Swing , authored by a one Dan Hawkins. A huge melancholy- phlegmatic personality, he is now one of the top businessmen in the country. If he can succeed in this sales business, I surely can. I’m terribly excited to read his story! If a shy introvert can get over himself and “change his stars”, anyone can! Be blessed as you revitalize your life today!

Quotes Ideas

Tomorrow marks two months since I began this wonderful blogging journey. I am so proud of myself , my self confidence has shot through the roof since hubby and I joined our LIFE group in August. (Find out more here.) As stated in that post, I never would have considered starting a blog prior to August, regardless of the encouragement I likely would have received. It would prove to be too much work, no one could guarantee I’d have a following, etc. I had been depressed for a few years and had grown grossly fond of negativity and doubt. They were my constant companions, and like Job’s so called “friends”, they never shut up. 

 Writing has been a source of comfort, stress release, fulfilment, and joy for me for so long–since I was a teen. But that thief depression stole so much of my joy, and with it my beautiful creativity, productivity, passion, and a big chunk of my life’s purpose. 

But with the help of my God, my husband, and my new friends, I began to emerge from my self imposed hibernation. God shone His holy Spirit on me brighter than before and re-illumined my passion, awoke it once more, blew His life giving breath into me and led me to once again pick up a pen, grab a notebook, and begin. 

Here’s a gem, folks: A journey begins with one single step. Cliché though it may be, it’s a bright, solid truth. I cannot wait to see where God takes me and my wee site. I know I have big plans, and my heavenly Father has bigger ones for me! I pray one is eventually becoming a published author. One step at a time. 

Thank you all for joining me on this new journey.  I appreciate and am grateful to each and every one of my loyal readers, I never take any of you for granted . (What a blessing– my work has admirers! I am bearing fruit– I am so excited. 💖😍) I hope you all stick with me for the long haul– I will tread new roads, and I welcome all my future followers to the glorious adventure! 

Thanks again, all of you. May Almighty God bless you abundantly today and every day! 

Who Could Go For A Cup Of Something Hot? 

I hope all of you are getting used to my recurring themes, an example of which is the focus of this post: hot beverages! I was going to center solely on holiday beverages, but I’ve been introduced to something fairly recently (a year or so ago) that needs attention.

This is perfection, hands down–perhaps the best hot chocolate I have ever had. I need more. (My aunt bought me this for Christmas one year, and I know she reads these! 😉)  I kept the container because I’ve been meaning to pick up more and haven’t gotten around to it. Pretty sure it comes with decadent marshmallows!! Huge suckers, they look like fat snowflakes. Heavenly. 

Another seasonal favorite is apple cider. Yummy! I can taste the spicy warmth now . . . !  😊

Yes, I must absolutely drink it warm. Hot, actually. Does it need to be spiked? Of course not, but I wouldn’t object! Spiced rum is perfect in there. Not sure what else would suffice, but hey, if anyone has any tried-and-true additions, let me know! 😊

Chai tea is also a fall and winter favorite. Chai is the only tea I’ll put milk in. As much as I adore England, I probably wouldn’t be welcome there for long due to my abhorrent, abnormal tea practices.  Haha! 

Okay, finally–let’s get to it. Rooibos. (Pronounced “roy-boss”.) It’s a plant from the African region manufactured as tea. Decaf, which is great for the sleep challenged, like me. Who’s had it? What do you think? I’ve had at least three varieties, two I went through just within the last few months. Correction: I finished a cranberry blood orange variety (Bentley) maybe 2ish months ago, and I’m working on a pomegranate cherry one currently.  They’re both part of this massive set of sample teas, there’s literally about 10 flavor varieties–black, green, and the two Rooibos.  I fell in love with it when my mother-in-law gave it to me. She is not a tea drinker. Not really into hot beverages at all, unless she’s sick. I think I’ve seen her drink only hot chocolate since I’ve known her (17 years!!), and just twice. Hey, I’ll take it!! I’ll try anything once, especially new teas. 

This behavior of never drinking hot beverages is nigh incomprehensible in my corner of the universe. I drink a bare minimum of one hot beverage a day; usually I do two, a cup each of coffee and tea. It all started with my family’s proclivity for tea–they’re to blame! (See my tea post.)

Back to the rooibos. I go on tangents often–sorry, not sorry. These side roads make my writing all the more interesting, no? The blood orange was divine–I highly recommend it, even if you’ve never had rooibos previously. It’s not a super strong flavor, and the decaf aspect is what keeps me coming back. The pom cherry is good with some lemon. (I add sugar to all my teas and coffee.)

What are your favorite/essential hot beverages, holiday themed or any time? 

Be blessed with a cup and quality conversation, or calm quietness! Enjoy! 💖


Family MBTI Typology: Differences Are Beautiful 

Our individuality is what makes us unique, an island unto ourselves–but by the same token, no man is an island (cue the introverts’ resigned sighs), and so we must learn to adapt to and celebrate those differences.

I will go through my family’s typology in this post, and highlight the traits I admire in each person.

By now, most of you know I’m an INFJ. My husband took the test and got ENFJ, but once I became more well-versed in typology I retyped him as ESFP. Ours is an . . . interesting relationship, shall we say. I am definitely kept on my toes!

I am fairly confident that my oldest daughter, Jocelyn, is an INFJ as well. The only other possibility I can come up with is INFP. We get along superbly, but beings she does have a bit of an attitude and is strong-willed to an extent, INFP may actually be more accurate.

Alexandra, my youngest, is shaping up to be ESFP, like Dad, or ENFP. I’m thinking she’s an S: she doesn’t seem to be overly introspective or thoughtful. More of a take things as they come type, which also accounts for the P. She is the biggest light in my life, even though some aspects of her personality get under my skin. She’s forever smiling, energetic, and doing something funny. She’s always lifting spirits. Hence her title, Sunshine.

Jo is quiet, thoughtful, and helpful around the house. She’s also fun-loving, but goes through inexplicable funks, like her mother. But we are awesome. 😊

Aaron is spontaneous, fun, hilarious, and a friend to everyone. He’s also a decisive, risk-taking leader. He doesn’t think too much– he’s a man of action, which is absolutely fabulous and fine with me! 💜

What is your MBTI type? Let me know! Be blessed today!

Prayer Is Power: True Intimacy With God Is Possible

We can and should communicate with God. The Bible is teeming with examples of why and how we should foster a relationship with our Creator. I will touch on why we should allow God to pursue us, how to communicate with him, and end with some scripture chronicling (that’s a word now) how powerhouse disciples in the faith did it.

Why is it important to seek God out, or, better yet, let him seek us out? Because quite simply, we need him desperately. I know I reference this gem ad nauseam, but folks, it’s priceless. Jesus says in John 15, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing.”  Jesus himself said it! Not any average Joe, but the Son of God says we need him each and every moment of each and every day. He saw his fellow man toil in their own strength, full of pride and self-reliance, down the path of doom and destruction. Take the rich, self righteous man in Mark 10. He boasted that he had kept the law of Moses his entire life, since childhood. Jesus, however, knew the man’s greedy heart. He said, “Great–but following the law isn’t enough. Go and sell all you have, and give to those who have nothing!”

 The man couldn’t believe it! He thought he could get into heaven because he kept the law to the literal letter– but Almighty God can see into our very hearts and souls, folks. Thus, no man can enter Heaven. We are internally corrupt. We need the grace, mercy, and forgiveness of God to get there. The greatest prayer we can utter is the prayer of the repentant heart, admitting our sinful nature and asking God’s forgiveness of our sins. The gap, the eternal gap between God and man, is bridged by a cross. We enter into Paradise by prayer: earnest, heartfelt conversation with the One who willingly gave himself up on it.

Let’s discuss exactly how to do so. James 4 and 1 Peter 5 say we should humble ourselves before the Lord. I take this to mean that God doesn’t need or even expect us to come with flowery platitudes or sonnets, what have you. Yes, we should be reverent, but what he desires is communication, period. John writes in Revelation 3 that God doesn’t want us to be “lukewarm”. I’m interpreting it a bit differently, but the principle is the same: I believe God would rather we be a bit angry and would hear us express our uncertainty, fear, sadness, then have us door slam him because we are sad or angry.  I hope that makes sense. I know, in my relationships, I prefer open, honest communication to silence. Silence solves nothing and can be dangerous.

 So, in sum, we can pray to clear the air and sort our hearts and minds out with our Creator. He will be more than happy to clarify our situations for us, in his time. That, friends, is another post entirely! Trust in God’s perfect timing. . . . We are forever learning to do that, aren’t we?

In my earnestness, I got ahead of myself. I began to cover why we pray along with how to pray. We pray for ourselves, and also our loved ones. Prayer is powerful, as James 5 says. Our faith can move mountains (Matt. 17:20).  When we pray, God never fails to hear and respond, but not always as we’d like, perhaps. Should we cease to pray, if the outcome isn’t to our liking? Of course not! Trust me, God is God for a reason. He knows perfectly well what he’s doing. He is the sovereign King, the Lord of Lords! We are but grains of sand on his shore. That’s precisely why he is God and we are not! We are pitifully finite, but he is from first to last.  (Rev. 22:13.) His will is perfect,  and, rest assured, will be carried out to completion long after our time here is over! Pray to him with absolute confidence.

Lastly, let’s look at some examples of mighty prayers made in faith by Abraham, David, and finally, Jesus himself.

In Genesis 18, Abraham is speaking to God, asking him to spare Sodom if there’s even one righteous, God-fearing person within its walls. He says, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes.” (Verse 27.)  Be bold enough to come to God, but be sure to come in humility and reverence for who he is.

So many of David’s psalms would work here, but I’ll use psalm 55. Verse 16 says, “As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.” A man who hasn’t experienced answered prayer firsthand couldn’t write that! Praise God!

Perhaps the greatest prayer of all time is Jesus’ prayer to his Father in Luke 22:42. He says, ” Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but Yours be done.” Talk about humility and reverence! God had every reason to be “well pleased” with his Son!


The Introvert Traveler


 I hope your take away from this post is that your prayers and petitions are always heard and answered by God. Despite our tiny, finite natures, God wants to be involved in our lives and loves to hear from us. Praise him for that. Amen!

Be blessed today!

Ancestry + Cuisine= Autobiography 2.0

World Atlas

 I haven’t yet detailed my ancestry nor my favorite foods, so let’s go! I adore my fluffy posts–anyone’s, really.  Fluffy doesn’t have to mean uninspired or vapid. This is my blog, and I am most certainly not vapid, and don’t wish to be uninspirational. I presume my 10, 11 readers know that already! 😉

Both sides of my family hail from Germany, primarily; not unlike the vast majority of folks from Eastern PA. Good Dutch stock here! The rest (about 30%) is split between Poland, Hungary, and a dash of Ireland.

My mom’s grandfather (my Nana’s dad) emigrated to Ellis Island from Hungary as a boy with his family after World War I. They settled in Allentown PA, where he eventually met my great-grandmother, and the rest is history.

My Grandmom’s (dad’s mom) mother’s family is from Poland. She says my love of music is attributed to my Polish side. I can’t give any real credence to that opinion, but it’s an interesting observation. I’ve always  had a deep love of music and singing.  Her father’s family was Irish–her maiden name was Kelhart. I’d say I am Irish: aren’t they supposed to have a temper? Haha! Moving on . . .

Who doesn’t love to eat?! My favorite dish is chicken paprikas, pure Hungarian goodness. It’s chicken in a sour cream and paprika sauce. Usually it’s served with homemade dumplings, but white rice is suitable also. 

Mooshu Jenne

My favorite ethnic dessert has to be kiffles. My Nana makes them each and every Christmas without fail, and they are to die for. They are bits of cream cheese dough rolled up with select fillings– traditionally there are walnut, apricot, and lekvar (prune). They are delicious, trust me! (I’ve also had raspberry and chocolate peanut butter.) Finish them with a dusting of powdered sugar and you’re off to the races.

A Proper Bostonian-Blogger

I pondered whether to stop here, or add some more favorite foods. I’ll make myself super famished and will consume tonight’s dinner single-handedly while the rest of my family starves. 😁

In fact, tonight’s meal is a favorite–spaghetti. Yum! With garlic bread and salad, you’ve achieved perfection.

 I also love most types of seafood: crab, fish, clams, calamari, and lobster. I dislike mussels, oysters, and scallops.

Other scrumptious selections include pizza, tacos, salads, chili, gyros, and Chinese. What are some of your favorites? Dislikes? Treat yourself today! Blessings!

The Cons (And Some Pros) Of Being An INFJ

The rarest MBTI type is also the worst. Maybe that’s why we are so rare–it takes a special person to deal with this particular function stack! Haha.

The M.O., the core trait we all share, is also in all probability the one we wish we could eliminate. We care too damn much. Our hearts are too big and always bleeding. We love to love and rarely know how to stop. Oftentimes we should, yet sadly cannot. That’s right, we are unable to turn the love switch off. This causes a myriad of problems, correct?

Let’s continue down this path. When we are hurt in any type of relationship, what do we do? We forgive relatively easily, right? And often it’s 70 x 7! But then, they go too far, even for us. And we cut the cord. Then what happens?

We feel guilty, don’t we? We are going against our forgiving, merciful natures to protect our marshmallow hearts from further damage. Even we can be pushed too far. But unlike other types, even on the edge of the abyss, we continue to love.

And when we love others who aren’t receptive, we suffer. We are in excruciating agony. And no one can understand, because they aren’t us.  We cope by writing, singing, playing an instrument, to release these feelings from the cages of our hearts and minds.

How To Deal With Crazy People

Which brings me to the next point. Our Ni/Ti loop. How many hate it? I do. I’ve heard some INFJs say they are privy to some amazing insights through the interplay of these traits, and I suppose it’s true. But for me, this duo just brings me untold anxiety.

My Ti gets out of control way too often, resulting in overthinking, and my Ni doesn’t make it any better. Ni says, “This is how X is supposed to go,” and if the outcome of X isn’t as expected, cue the anxiety. And remember, INFJs take an inordinate amount of pride in our Ni. That is to say, our introverted intuition–our  hunches, our preconceived notions, our insights about people and situations. A reason we’re so prideful is because our insights are correct 90-95% of the time! Thus, when we are wrong, we are understandably put out. (We experience hurt, confusion, and not a little cognitive dissonance.)

We are complex, moody, not a bit selfish, perfectionistic, sarcastic (ahem), and unforgiving, as I mentioned. But we are also extremely loving, giving, funny, intelligent, artistic, sensitive, beauty lovers. Those brave enough to love us and stick with us for the long haul will be rewarded. We are special and amazing, so let’s take the bad with the good and spread our awesomeness around! Be blessed, everyone!

The Holidays Approacheth–The Best Part Of The Year! 

With Halloween and October gone for another year, it’s time to turn the calendar to November, and with it: the glorious, though busy, holiday season!

Can you sense my excitement?! I don’t normally put any stock in the Zodiac, but apparently Cancers are huge into family and tradition. I’m a textbook case, folks! Any time I get to sit around and laugh with my dear family, each moment is treasured, and when we are celebrating our gratitude to God, and, later, the entrance of God into his own creation, there’s something sacred and magical in the air.

Thomas Kinkade

Our traditions are simple, but so very special for all of us. We are also starting a new one this Christmas!

Thanksgiving isn’t too loaded. We usually visit my mother-in-law early in the day and then go to my mom’s for dinner. This year, though, we will have to either meet earlier in the day, or perhaps get together on the weekend or even the next Thursday, if she can schedule off. My mom just began working at Boscov’s, and unfortunately must work Thanksgiving evening. Horrible. She’s going to be there all day the next day! Sheesh. I feel awful about it. 😢

The next day, Friday, we head to my dad’s for a lasagna dinner. Many of my cousins come with their families, and we all have a great time.

I was going to post a picture of my brother John and I that was taken at one of these Thanksgiving Friday dinners a few years ago, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do a screenshot with this new phone–so I’ll just include a picture of him and I from the last tine I saw him, this past Father’s Day. 😁

I pray that when my siblings are through with school, at least some will remain local. It’s so hard having Sam in New York and Steph out in Bedford. I miss them so!! 😞

Okay, back on track. Christmas is much more chaotic. We’re up early (not a shocker)  to be at my dad’s by 10 or 10:30 for our annual Christmas breakfast. This precious time with family is truly one of, if not my favorite, gatherings each year. It’s different, exciting, and super fun. My step-mom makes delicious French toast bakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, cinnamon buns, fruit, hot chocolate, and coffee. My sister comes home to be with all of us, of course. And often my grandmother, aunt, and uncle are there too. After, we do gifts. Believe me when I say I don’t go for the gifts!! The food is all I need! 😉 Ha! Christmas breakfast is probably the highlight of the entire year.

Next we hit my father-in-law’s place for a few hours, and then my mom’s for Christmas dinner. That’s a lot of running! Oh and I forgot to mention Christmas Eve service, too. Always the best part of the holiday.

This year, we are doing something new with the girls. Jo seems on board with it, and I don’t see why Alex would object. Aaron heard of this concept of taking the kids out after Christmas, when prices are rock bottom, and having them pick out whatever they want. Maybe we’ll get them one present to open Christmas Eve before bed, but that’s it. I love it! Less hassle running around and wrapping for us. I really dislike wrapping, even though I try to make it fun. I suck at it. 😔

New Years? We rarely go out or have anyone over anymore. We’re old people with kids now! Haha. Maybe we’ll head to our parents for pork and sauerkraut. But that’s it. After Christmas, I just wait for snow to come. So beautiful and peaceful. 💜❄

What are some of your favorite holiday traditions? Be blessed this glorious season!!

The Lost Art Of Dreaming Big 

Aaron and I are noticing a disturbing trend among the folks we talk to about our business. No one seems to know or remember how to dream anymore.

When we tell them we plan to be debt-free in a maximum of 10 years, or about all the traveling we plan on doing, or our wish to donate to charity–the universal response is the smile and nod. They appear to be on the same page as we are, but inside they’re usually thinking, “This will never happen!” Or, “Poor suckers got scammed.” At the very least, it’s “Well, good for them; but that can never be me because of A, B, C and D.”

Of course, they’re dead wrong! These poor people are victims of negativity, doubt, and disbelief. They’ve been conditioned to think that only the “lucky few” ever accomplish their dreams. Also, they say, I had some aspirations when I was a kid, but when I became an adult I did away with dreaming. That’s childish. 

No, fantasizing is childish. A fantasy is pretending you can fly, or that you’re a mermaid, or princess, or fairy.  Wanting to travel, become wealthy, be altruistic, or even becoming debt-free are all achievable ambitions! Let that sink in for a moment.

Dr. Axe

Every worthwhile goal, dream, or aspiration will take much time, effort, and even repeated failure to accomplish. This is depicted perfectly (no pun intended) in the life of Jesus Christ, who of course is the only perfect, sinless human who has ever lived.

Look no further than his journey of abject suffering, failure (repeated persecution due to entire towns and states fearing him or his ideas, or they were simply incredulous of his miracles and thought he was a charlatan), pain, and loss to see a perfect illustration of total faith in God and persevering through struggle and adversity by the power of the Holy Spirit.

You–yes, YOU!!–can do absolutely anything with the life God has so abundantly given you. Here are gems from his Word that will encourage you to step out in faith with the King of Kings at your right hand!

  • Is. 41:10 

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

  • Ps. 31:24

“So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!”

  • Rom. 5:5

“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”

  • Rom. 15:13

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

  • 2 Cor. 12:9

“Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”

  • Phil. 4:13

“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

  • Heb. 11:1

“Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.”

  • 2 Tim. 1:7

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”

We are more than  conquerors in Christ, Scripture says. We will not be defeated any longer by Satan’s negativity. Take back the reins of your life today, and dedicate it to God and His glory. Nothing is impossible with Jesus. Be blessed today!

Communion With Christ: Experience the Creator By Reveling In His Creation 

If you’ve been following my ramblings for a bit, you’ll have realized by now how deeply I love nature. There’s something to discover and enjoy during every season of the year. Yes, including my least favorite, summer!

Scripture holds some beautiful depictions of God’s Creation in all of its splendor, and some passages even describe nature praising God! Let’s explore some now.

Isaiah 40:26 says “Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name.” 

Psalm 104 is centered entirely on nature. I’ll give a sample. “You stretch out the starry curtain of the heavens; you lay out the rafters of your home in the rain clouds. You make the clouds your chariot; you ride upon the wings of the wind. The winds are your messengers, flames of fire are your servants.” (Verses 2-4.) 

Two of my favorite scriptures on nature are Psalm 19:1-2 and Isaiah 55:12. Psalm 19:1-2 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.” Isaiah 55:12 says, “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands!”

 Trees are clapping en masse as we speak, decked out in their most breathtaking, sumptuous Autumn regalia. There’s honestly nothing I enjoy more than getting out to a beautiful, quiet place and just listening to and seeing the beauty of God all around me. I behold His magnificence in every tree, flower, cloud, lake, ocean wave, bird, deer, squirrel, even ant, caterpillar, and honey bee! 

I hear His mighty voice in the ocean’s cacophonous roar, the birdsong, the wind’s soft sighing breeze and mighty gusty howls, the tranquil cricket’s chirp, and the silence and breathtaking beauty of a fresh snowfall.

 God can be found anywhere by anyone who truly desires to seek and know him. (Matt. 7:7, Rev. 3:20.)  Nature is my most preferred way to experience God in all his fullness, majesty, beauty, grace, and love. How do you best commune with God? I’d love to hear your insights and stories. Be blessed today!
