I’m grateful for many things this year and to list them would be very long! I want to say many thanks for all my blog readers and this community. Even though I don’t post everyday, I have an ongoing internal dialogue of what I plan to share, how to improve my photography skills, pondering on other people’s posts and updates, and thinking of friendships I’ve made in this community.
Despite the occasional setbacks and life challenges of this year, I look back wondering how I made it through those ordeals without having a complete meltdown. When I feel like giving up on homeschooling, Jesus nudges me to keep going and to try again. When I feel the day is doomed and unproductive even before it starts, I pray for a new attitude doubting that’ll make a difference; but God in his mercy answers making the day better than I imagined.
Thank you my ever precious peeps: Chris, Elliot, & Ellis! My heartfelt thanks to my family on both sides, my awesome friends and neighbors, skilled doctors and nurses, everyday people I interact with in various places, and kind strangers who make the world shine a bit brighter. But the greatest thanks goes to Jesus who blesses me with the company of these people, His presence, and turning difficult circumstances into blessings that only He could make possible.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day (if you celebrate it) or a day of giving thanks for life and all that makes it beautiful!
Peace and Blessings, Esther
Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!
