As I grow older I am beginning to realize more the importance of stillness and quiet. You can’t appreciate the gifts Yahweh has given without taking time to just be. In our hurried, competitive based world it’s a choice to step back and revel in the amazing of creation and the gifts Yahweh freely gives to anyone who chooses to be still in body, mind and spirit.
Here are a few snapshots of the gifts of that stillness that Yahweh has blessed us with so far this summer….everyone is a masterpiece.

Plum Blossoms…if there was a smell called delicious this would be it
Another field behind our house with a storm rolling in
Clouds hanging around the mountain
A double rainbow
A Lazuli Bunting. I have never seen one of these birds here or anywhere else. This one came on a Shabbat morning and hung out in the flower patch for about 30 minutes eating dandelions.
One of the bluebirds that has made our yard it’s home for the summer
Hannah eating to her hearts content
Mama and baby Killdeer
