I am many things to myself and to many people, but first and foremost I am a child of God, saved by grace through Jesus Christ. I love to write poems, short stories and essays; I love to travel, cook, analyze data, read, and follow politics — I am these and all the other little things that can only be elusively defined in the moments of a day in my life. Just like many other people. Just like you.
I hope you will find rest and calm in my writings, a respite from the hectic world outside.
You have got a wonderful blog started here, and the messages are timeless and pertinent to our world today. Thanks for stopping in at my blog and providing some feedback.
Thank you for your encouraging comments, BigSkyKen. I enjoy reading your blog and appreciate the artistic photography which proclaims the Lord’s glory and His handiwork.

Keep up the fabulous work! While I know photos are popular, but I so enjoy the writing…they add value to my life!
See you in S Asia someday?
Thank you so much, sundowniest, for your encouraging words; I am humbled that my writing speaks to your life. Likewise, I feel the same way about your writing – I always come out with a new appreciation or novel way of looking at things after reading your posts. I am thankful to have met you via WordPress and hope to see you in SE Asia someday! I live in the US but I visit Asia often. I take it you currently live in Asia now?

Thank you for “liking my post” I never seem to have enough time to write! And God is so good to fill my life with little everyday miracles much less the big ones that sometimes I don’t keep track as well. I am hoping that by working w/another blogger who seems so organized and savy, I can have a better topics or table of contents listing for those who are looking for a specificconnection.
I do intend to finish my hospital stay post today. I felt that the first post was plenty long-in fact, if I could have found way to cut it, I would have, but God types these messages out. I just provide the fingers. I can’t wait to see what He says later.
Thank you, Cindy, for visiting and following my blog. I enjoyed reading your post on your hospital stay, especially the ending, where one of the hospital chaplains visited you. Just goes to show that the Lord orders our steps and brings people in our lives to encourage and bless us, as we ourselves are a blessing to others. I am following your blog, too, to keep posted on your activities and the little everyday miracles that God fills your life with.
Hi there, I’ve been away for awhile, but have been doing my best to keep in touch with your wonderful writing.

Hello Dee! Because I so enjoy your blog, I’ve just nominated lilies, sparrows and grass for the Reader Appreciation Award.

How can i not follow? And may Our Lord keep using you, and blessing you with such beautiful inspiration…
Thank you so much for your gracious words. It is my humble privilege and joy to be used by the Lord for His honor and for His praise.
I woud like to thank you for the spiritual love and kisses and hugs you have given to my poems! I often think sometimes how one might take that i wrote about the Lord so much, but is me! I am so happy after reading your bio, that you too share the never ending passion for our Lord! He is truly life to also. Sometimes i tire of writing or sharing! I have been writing for 40 years and was not moved by the spirit to share until Jan2010. I always respected the power of words to lift up and bring down, to lift up and to destroy…so i always congnizant that what i write lifts him up always but also on the romantic side show many the value of a marraige where the two become one together! Thanks for blessing my day and i hope you will continue as i will do the same for you my sister! God Bless!
It is a blessing and pleasure to read your poems, Wendell, and I can feel your deep love for the Lord. Thank you for blessing my day, too, my brother. God bless you richly!

Your blog is inspiring and beautiful. I appreciate the high quality of your writing and photographs. Your poetry is especially breathtaking. I will visit often.
Thank you so much, Sarah. My apologies for the delayed response — just got back from a long trip to Asia! Your thoughts on my blog are so uplifting. I look forward to visiting your lovely blog as well!
Thank you! Hope you enjoy your visit to my blog. Your latest honeysuckle photo is dramatic and artistic, so beautiful. I enjoy your unique photography and your poetry so very much.
I post some of my images on my blog, and I do hope to post more, but a lot of the images are royalty free images. I did modify the brightness and contrast rendering of the honeysuckle photo to make it more dramatic, but the original image came from Wikimedia. Thank you so much for your appreciation.
And I just had the pleasure of getting to know your blog, writings and poetry. It is a blessing to be introduced to it, and I look forward to the enjoyment of reading more of your thoughts and words.
Great! It’s been a while since I put my Photoshop skills to use–I have a degree in graphic design, and also a degree in English. Good to know that we share loves of photography and writing, and that I can edit Wikimedia photos for my blog just like you do so beautifully!
That is a wonderful combination — graphic design and English. 🙂
I really like your poetry! Really nicely written. what a blessing! 🙂
