daylillysquirrel on ledgebird groupI’ve been working on a new manuscript this summer that will release in the spring. I haven’t had a go-lie-on-the-beach kind of vacation, but I try to take time to appreciate the beauty of the moments around me.

Here are a few I’ve enjoyed, some in my own yard, and some on nearby outings. Whether you’ve had a conventional vacation or not, I hope you’re living in the moment and finding God’s presence and the beauty of the world he created.
