Sorry you're having problems w/ the spammer.
Whoever said that, it was very nicely put & nice match w/ the picture!
Thank you so much for your prayers. Kesley came down on her lunch break from work. Justin didn't even know that she was coming down - he was shocked too when she pulled up.

So true!

Mildred said...

So true. I love to hear the creek below our house tumble over the rocks. Your picture is beautiful.

Its amazing how bautiful rocks and a little water can be!

I like to think that life's tribulations are the rocks... and without them our lives would be bland and silent. But perhaps the rocks could be a "bit" smaller? :)

looks like a pile of little treasures...just waiting to be found.
great piture and a lovely quote.

Dawnie said...

How true this is. There is no part of nature which we can remove without affecting something else. WHat a delicate balance it all is.

Great photo. Its the simplicity that I think is so alluring!

Lovely shoreline scene, with interesting ruddy water. Amazing how everything around and in a stream or river affects it's color.

There is just something about water and rocks that clear the mind and sooth the soul.

Tricia - I am praying you get to see Jilly again soon! I know how much you adore her!!

Darla - I think so too!

Mildred - I love the sound of running water. Last year my hubby put a water foutain in our pond and it sounded wonderful!

Wendy - I'm glad you think so - I wasn't sure if anyone would see the same beauty I did.

Cedar - I agree - smaller rocks = smaller tribulations!

Busy Bee - thank you!!

Dawnie - we are looking forward to landscaping our cabin with some rocks this year!

Joan - well said. I wish more people understood the delicate chain of nature. There is a reason for everything being here.

Retired one - thank you! Sometimes its the simplest things that evoke beauty!

Deborah - I'm glad I didn't use my muddy river photo - lol! But you are right about how everything affects the color of the river.

Benny & Patsy - I agree!
