(Day 85) Just a closer walk with Thee

It's a time to be reflective. A close family member is approaching life's end - not unexpectedly from a medical perspective. We're a long way from home, in order to be nearby. I had the opportunity today to accompany one of my daughters and granddaughters for a walk through some forest trails. We shared laughter, and enjoyed the beautiful creation. I thought I'd share just a couple of shots today.

Such tough times to go through. My thoughts and prayers are with you also.

Lovely images....I find I feel closest to God when I am out in nature and breathing deeply of his creation.

Rick said...
