Searching For Love

Flowers bring me joy that can not be measured. Just the site of how it opens up and shows life is extraordinary.

Flowers bring me joy that can not be measured. Just the site of how it opens up and shows life is extraordinary.

My eyes are not dry.  I am always with a tear in my eye these days.  It does not always make sense, but it must be that this old heart is being softened by the letting go of matters that are of no concern to me.

It is true.  There really is no new lesson I could give to you.  It is hard to believe that I look up and I know that my belief is stronger than ever.  Friends may come and go, but one thing is for sure that when I look up, I have the help I need.

I have been so alone, but this heart made of rock is melting.   I am giving it all up for the One that really matters.  I love receiving  grace exactly where I am at.

I have been a fool for falling away from You.  I don’t even know why You stay with me.  Every time I fall from You, your love comes back to me even richer.

Friends can get cold, but You are there for my soul.  Burdens are there, but You are carrying them for me.  No one understands them like You.

Faith is hard.  We are all responsible for not only what we say, but also for what we do not say.

The community around me is so broken.  Thank You today for setting me free from the bad and leading me back to live in trust with only You.  Amazingly enough the idea that I am who I am and You still walk by my side is extraordinary as the miracle of the opening of a flower.

Thank you for taking the time to read.  I felt a need to share of my personal journey and a part of it has been finding God in the midst of my troubles.  If you follow my blog and  not interested in this part of my journey, I do not want to lose you as a reader, but this is something I am very proud of through my Jewish/Christian heritage.  I have not spoken enough of God lately.  He needs to be recognized more by all of us.

 

 

Unspoken Words

Nature speaks to us without saying a word.

Some friends have told me that they are at their most creative when they are high on drugs.  Yet, here I am not high, but I feel something in me so strong.  Unspoken words prompt my inner most being of vast emotions.

Missing pieces to my story are wrapped up in my mind in a HIGH unexplained by this world’s standards.  I was touched by the response of last week’s post.

I woke up this morning alone.  It is nothing new really.  It just hits me harder some mornings than others. Sitting up in bed, I pondered what the day had in store for me.  I had some plans, but I knew I had the capabilities to change them on a dime if I so chose to do.

Wonderful Wednesday

I had such a great response to a post I wrote about my excursion to Stehekin, Washington that is a remote village in the North Cascades, I had to share a couple of other photos. Today’s photo was taken off the pier where the boat comes into the small harbor.  You can do so many activities here.

The Lady And All Her Mysteries

Taken from the peep hole of the lady of the lake boat!

Do not let this title catch you off guard!  The lady does exist as a boat and the mysteries are real. Recently on one of my many trips to eastern Washington, I went on an all day excursion on a voyage to the head of Lake Chelan.

Lake Chelan was carved out of glacial ice about 17,000 years ago.

Let me give you perspective of the mysteries of Lake Chelan.  If you stood atop of the Pyramid Peak (8245 ft), overlooking Lake Chelan, and walked three miles straight out, due east, and looked to the bottom of Lucerne Basin (386 ft below sea level), you’d be looking in the deepest gorge in North America.  Obviously this chasm is difficult to view, but no less stunning.

This campground is near Lucerne where located is the deepest gorge in North America.

In the early days of settlers to this area, dreams were similar to the Gold Rush.  These fantasies vanished  quickly though, and the Lake became more known for its intense natural beauty that brought tourists from far and wide.  Lake Chelan is not only spectacular, but pristine because no roads even to this day have been built to reach the beautiful town of Stehekin.

Looking out over the grandeur of Lake Chelan is absolutely breathtaking.

As you travel on the lady, you will see desert mountains that turn to forests.  You will also feel the weather change through the rough terrain with a drop of a hat as climate changes are felt from the lower part of Lake Chelan where one begins the journey through the hills that finally take you through the deepness of the Cascade Mountain Range.  Along the way, Mother Nature treats you to views only painted by the eyes of famous artists to the degree of the beauty that are so well deserved of this area.

The clear waters of Lake Chelan make for a majestic ride up river to the town of Stehekin.

There are also very rough patches of mountain peaks that make your jaw drop from its sheer enormity that probably can not be viewed anywhere else in the world.  This experience can be seen through my photos, but to live it is oh so much more worth it.  I hope my words put a desire in your heart to come to the Lady and see the mysteries she will bestow upon you…

To see this place in real time is amazing!

Wonderful Wednesday

It seems amazing to go through life and not enjoy the small things. Make your Wednesday wonderful by paying it forward or showing an act of kindness.  It will change you.  Photo for today taken at Lake Chelan Shores. The lake’s widest part is around this area before it narrows down.  What a site!
  

Terrific Tuesday

I love the state of Washington where I live!  I am glad to share of its beauty with my followers  I have a set of great new photos to share, but in the meantime please see my Instagram page also under the name alesiablogs !
