Giving Thanks

I'm giving thanks to God today for...
A wonderful time away in Voyageurs National Park;
The four Newbery Medal books that entertained us our drive;
The quiet of the Northwoods;
The sound of water lapping on the lakeshore;
Bald eagles calling out and the sound of cormorant wings flapping over head;
Wild rice in the wild;
Beautiful lightning storms over the lake in the distance;
Days on the shore of Kabetogama Lake reading;
Conversations with--rangers, travelers, family and Jason;
Learning about the French-Canadian voyageurs and the lumber industry of the park;
Time with family;
Safely returning home.

Grace and peace be ours in abundance as we learn to give thanks for his goodness in all things.

P.S.  These photos were taken by both Jason and I during our vacation.


  1. loving the photos.. a wonderful eye for beauty and words that open to see Him... thanks!

  2. I had so much fun trying to figure out how to capture the lichen with my digital camera! I played with the micro-feature, which I have used for awhile now. It worked rather well. However, I had trouble finding my night feature on the camera, so I didn't capture the lightning storm we saw. Maybe I'll figure that out for my next trip :)
