giant thank you from the bottom of my heart to new friends at (click here....The High Calling and all the wonderful people there…. I thank God for blessing me with the gift of your friendship, teaching, hospitality, and encouragement.  Here’s more of what He gave me while I was at (click here...   Laity Lodge














For the beauty of the hour
of the day and of the night
every hill and valley
tree and flower
sun and moon and stars at night

Hallelujah, hallelujah, Lord of all to thee we raise
Hallelujah, hallelujah, this our song of grateful praise.

Origingal  hymn lyrics by John Rutter

  2. Stunning photos, Patricia. Oh how I would have loved to be with all of you at Laity Lodge last week, but God showed me clearly that the timing was not right. I pray that the work God did in each of you will produce fruit that will continue to bring Glory to His name in your individual lives and at the HighCalling.Org. God bless!

  9. OK, I was there, and I didn't see a single of the beautiful things you featured here. What is the matter with me? Is it because I can't figure out a camera?

    Anyway, thank you! And I have your laugh in my heart.

  10. Good grief, Pat. I had no idea you could take such beautiful pictures. I especially like the moth (#3) and the orange dragonfly.

  11. Hey roomie! I did not know this about you either. Hummingbirds capture a special place in my heart, as did this weekend and the chance to meet you (thanks again for the shout-out in the airport, by the way, or I might not ever have made it!)

  16. Patricia! Holy cats. I mean monarchs. You may have just convinced me I need to pay attention to butterflies.

    Thank you so much for sharing these!

    (And, a true joy to meet you this weekend. We'll do it again, yes?)

  20. I'm just breathless and stunned along with everyone else. Thank you.

    And...I never thought about hummingbirds migrating away. We have them year-round here.

    Hmmm.
