The Ancient Witness

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “The Ancient Witness 32321a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The ancient tree stands alone on the vacant hill. For centuries it has witnessed the world from its vantage point. It is among the last of its kind. When it was young there was only forest. Trees as far as the eye could see! All of them were giants with strong roots that held deep in the earth clinging to a millenia of foundation. The time came for them to yield up their timber to build a new nation and because it was a just cause the forest agreed requesting that one be spared to hold their history. As the decades progressed the tree grew and saw many wonders. The new nation flourished and soon it oversaw the people as they lovingly worked the rich landscape both above and below the mountains. Often churches gathered beneath it’s branches in fellowship and worship and the tree thrived as the people were blessed. War returned to landscape and yet even amidst smoke of black powder and the thunder of cannons the observed that there were times when the guns fell silent and the men gathered together in worship of the same God. Then peace returned and once again loving hands worked in soil and tended to the animals. In those times the congregation gathered in fellowship and worship but also to play a new game. The game was baseball and at times it bore a resemblance to war except that it ended in laughter and a bonding of the people. By this time a strange buggy rolled over the mountains with a puttering noise and loud bangs that frightened the animals. The people called it a Model T. More decades passed and this time there was two more wars but those were in other lands where the tree couldn’t witness. The only way that the tree even knew that there was war was by the yellow ribbon and special services beneath its boughs. Afterwards, the time of plenty returned to the landscape and the people were generally happy. There was no more war for a while. Only what the people called conflicts. The ancient tree supposed that was better but didn’t really understand the difference. The world was changing rapidly now. There had been devices in space and worldwide communications. The loud Model T had been replaced numerous times with sleeker and quieter buggies. However, all but a few gathered around the tree to sing hymns or play games. The old tree found comfort in the sheltering of the animals and the gentle voice of the farmer who cared for them. Time had remained the same but the speed of life had gotten so fast that the ancient witness was dumbfounded about how to recall it all. And yet it still stands in it’s ancestral home with it’s branches stretched out in welcome and in faith that the people themselves will gather in fellowship once more. Even if it’s only in their hearts.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

March Wanderings

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “March Wanderings 30420” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The cool night air is filled with the chorus of the Spring Peepers as the mists fall gently on the mountain. The water condenses and pools into tiny rivers that criss-cross the hillside. Soon afterwards the sun breaks over the ridges to unveil the new world left behind by the gently falling water. It’s a good day for wandering around. All throughout the mountains the peepers songs have awoken tiny sprouts with only 1 or 2 small circular leaves. The soft green moss seems to have a new vibrancy as it slowly covers the stones and logs. The change is still in the air but in not too many days it will settle on the ground like the rain and our forests will be green again.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Memory Lingers

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Memory Lingers 31120bw” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Cold March winds swirl above in the unsettled skies. Behind me the roar of the big trucks on the highway fade into the distance leaving only the echoes of passers-by. Life on the highway is only a faint moment to the observer. Several yards below that high pressure ribbon of swift destination and imposing concrete lays the old road with its bright yellow lines and rolling hills. Two lanes are the destination today.

Of course I’ve come to pay a visit to the old barn. She is an echo unto herself standing as the bridge between centuries. If I close my eyes and concentrate I can hear the chatter of those who worked the fields as they store the wealth of the landscape inside the lapped wood and tin roof. The work was hot and laborious but the bonds were strong between the helpers. All who gathered there became family. Joined not by blood but by sweat and a common goal achieved. Nations are fed by families. Families are those who join hearts as well as hands.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

A Quiet Moment Of Connection

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Gentle Flow 31520” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The big blue truck eases gently from the pavement to the gravel. As I roll down the window the aroma of my morning coffee is interrupted with scent of the moss mingled with that of the stone and the sounds of the gently flowing water. I confirm in my heart that this moment is mine and silence the playback from my tablet as I exit the truck. There are certain spots in this world that are like recharging stations. Some are awe inspiring landscapes like the Grand Canyon but most are just little groves and streams. The smaller ones are no less powerful. They’re just harder to find. I suppose that it’s human nature to look for a big God in big places where nature is overpowering and generally speaking God will meet us in those spots too. But it’s the still, small voice that speaks volumes. All we need is to stop and hear with the intention of listening. The stone is the same age everywhere that there is earth and the water touches all parts of the globe at one point in time. It’s all part of creation and it’s all connected. Including you and I. All we need to do is take a quiet moment to acknowledge the connection with nature and it’s creator.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

A Little Tranquility By The Waterfall

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Tranquility 22420” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

In the quiet moments there is clarity of mind and spirit. It’s that recharge moment when we can push back the noise of the outside world and remember ourselves as we truly are. As I stand before the little waterfall I can smell the fresh air. The falls are not particularly large nor do they drop a great distance. But they do carry peace and tranquility. The gentle sound of trickling water hitting the pool washes out the clutter of messages that invade the mind on a daily basis. Sometimes we wonder where all the great thinkers are? Where are the inventors and philosophers? The enlightened ministers? All the great minds of the past seem silent today. But the truth is that they haven’t really gone anywhere. They are us. It’s just that I in the past our minds were free from the constant distraction of competing messages from media and the internet. There was less pressure to be something else on someone else’s behalf and our time was our own. We could find our questions and sort out our answers. All of the famous Greek Philosophers advised us to spend time in nature and still the mind. It’s my belief that if we can just a few minutes every day to enjoy a waterfall or listen to the birds or even just find a quiet place to let the wind touch us that it does wonders for our mental and spiritual health. Be at peace in your life. Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
