Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

"Welcome, Spring!"

We’re enjoying late spring now – with currently cooler evening temperatures after recent rains. But we’ve already had some hot “summer” days and nights, too. And we’re still not sure we ever got any real winter weather here in the Upstate...

At any rate, we’ve been enjoying the flowers all around us – and especially in our own yard!

First came the crocus and daffodils:

Elizabeth was inspired to send a picture she drew to a children’s magazine. She received a nice letter of recognition in response. If the editors decide to publish her drawing, we were told that they’ll send us two copies of the magazine. Either way, the experience has already been exciting!

"Welcome, Spring!"

We also enjoyed the camelia and hawthorne and iris and roses – all of them wonderful reminders of our amazing Creator!

“You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.”
