Touching Nature




“Have a heart that never hardens,
a temper that never tires,
a touch that never hurts."
Charles Dickens

Had to pull off a busy road to enjoy this beautiful view early one morning, knowing that fans of
Sky Watch Friday would love the peaceful quiet moment.


The cows were up and moving but this little wallaby woke up with a fright when I nearly stepped on it in the grass.











One of my favorite Altered Books.

I really like how the light is filtering down; that must have been pulling off the road for a better view.

Mandy the sky is beautiful! When I see rays of sunshine coming from clouds I feel that heaven has opened to allow someone in.
Now how sweet are those animals peering at you! Have a peace filled weekend!

Mandy... I'm smiling at how you pulled over to grab that picture for us. Doesn't sky watching with the world intensify every sky view!?!
...and this one you captured is just beautiful!
May God watch over us all as we take photos out of our windows, pull over in traffic and stand in the rain to acknowledge His Glory~

Happy Weekend to you ~Maria
