“Photo of a penguin lying in the snow, taken during January, in Antarctica, where I experienced God in the amazing beauty that changed my view of beauty forever. I was in awe during the whole trip!”

Oh yes, moments of awe and humility at the gifted nature of our lives! One such “moment” from my blog on Fall Colors:

“This reflection yields to an instantaneous Presence within which, in spirit, I lay prostrate in humility and thankfulness for this wondrous, ineffable Gift of Life. ”
