One year later...

Hi everyone - I can't believe it's been a year since this blog was started (in the car on the way from Arizona to Wisconsin - what a trip!).  We have been up to Wisconsin to the annual conference again and, being an avid stalker of bumble bees, here is what I saw:

The mother of all bees I have seen so far!  I estimated it to be about 1 1/4" long - that's a big ol' bee! 

Then I mosied along to the purple hibiscus and pink roses in the garden:

I didn't realize that when I focused my lens down the throat of the hibiscus how amazing it would be!  It's so easy to walk past, say, "That's pretty," and move on.

Finally, when I arrived back in Florida, this guy swooped past me as I was walking my dog:

He was a beauty!

I will leave you with a sunset from August - this was after a storm and the setting I used (for a sunny day) really made it look like the sky was on fire!

To quote from a worship song we sing, "Awesome is the Lord most high!" (thanks, Chris Tomlin!)

Have a beautiful week!!

Fondly, VG

"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions
it is by grace you have been saved."
Ephesians 2:4-5
