I hurried out the door on my walk this morning with the
items on my to-do list flitting about in my head. Pick up my mom and get to
niece’s graduation before all the parking spots are gone. Order a bridal shower
gift and pick up the paper goods for next week’s shower. Make a grooming
appointment for two too-furry furballs. Bake brownie treats for college kids
out for the summer.
I took a different path on my morning walk today that led me
past the ditch in our back yard. A couple of ladybugs, or as my biologist
husband would correctly identify them, ladybird beetles, caught my eye and I
looked closer at the weeds growing near the water’s edge.
My guest today is Katherine Pasour, a writer friend I only knew via the cyber world, until we met in person last week at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. And what a delight that was!!! We chatted over mealtimes and at author signings and before worship time...it was such fun to meet, in person, someone I'd come to know and treasure as a friend through emails and social media. Though I love this cyber world of knowing people, there's nothing like face-to-face communication!
Katherine, an author and wellness-advocate, writes at www.katherinepasour.com. I especially liked her blog below, and I thought it fit perfectly with my theme of glimpses of God from His amazing masterpieces. I hope you'll visit her site - you won't be disappointed! Enjoy!
The old is gone, the new is here!

you love Spring?
almost everything about Spring--the warmer temperatures, beautiful flowers,
birds singing in joyful chorus, and the smell of fresh cut grass.
week’s walk with God led my feet along mountain paths at Ridgecrest, North
Carolina, where I attended the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. The
lodge where I slept – only a few hours per night because I was pondering POV
and marketing and fresh angles and such – had the moniker, ‘Mountain Laurel,’
named for the exquisitely beautiful shrub native to the Eastern United States,
but not often seen in my neck of the woods in south Georgia.
I left the retreat center, I set out on a prayerwalk and found several mountain
laurel shrubs displaying God’s glory.
