After a very long day at school I needed to reconnect with creation.


We took a short hike following the Huron river just northeast of Willard, behind the above-ground reservoir.


Ember, our German Shepherd, was thrilled with the opportunity to explore the woods.


The woods were lovely, dark, yet not so deep…


Ember shepherded us through the field making sure she did not lose sight us.


Alec, my son, enjoyed the hike, using the opportunity to pursue his passion for photography.


The subtle colors in the field reminded me of a setting for an impressionist painting.


Ember made sure that no one was too far from her protection.


Small, subtle color in a gracious green world awakens the senses.


Bits of yellow, some call weed, spring out among a tangle of green texture.


It was an refreshing afternoon hike through creation.  I remember a verse, Think of the wild flowers, and how they neither work nor weave. Yet I tell you that Solomon in all his glory was never arrayed like one of these. If God so clothes the grass, which flowers in the field today and is burnt in the stove tomorrow, is he not much more likely to clothe you, you little-faiths? ” -Luke 12:27 (Phillips)
