A Beautiful End


                                                                                                                                          Available for purchase here

Today, like our year, began rather wet and uncertain. Thankfully our day and also our year, has finished  with unexpected joy and beauty.


                                                                                                                                                Available for purchase here

 As the sun sets on this day, one never knows what joys and opportunities lay just around the corner.....




Thank you for helping to make this year one of my best ever. At the beginning of this year I had no intentions of even beginning a blog. I am filled with wonder and thankfulness for the year just finishing and all which it has brought. May we look forward to 2012, not knowing what it will bring but knowing we can each find beauty, joy and contentment every day if we look with an open heart and mind. A very  Happy New Year to you all!

Karen

Thank you for doing this blog and sharing it so fully with us all!
I keep it for my quiet moments when I can savour all the beauty. God our God is a marvelous God... His handiwork takes my breath away!

“O come o come Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, who mourns in lonely exile here, until The Son of God appears…rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel…shall come to thee o Israel”

absolutely love this song...
I will sing it as a prayer for your people!

I've just popped in to read your past posts - we're back home again, so if it's ok I'll be commenting all in one. The shot of Miss G & Miss E asleep is precious & then I couldn't believe your captures of Master J's plane and the birds - particularly loved the shot of the corellas resting back on the tree. The new year brings on no new easiness in picking out my favourites of your favourites, especially in your sequence shots, for the upside down flowers I think I'll have to go with no. 5 - but they're all so gloriously clear, sharp and colourful. Master T is very observant - a tour guide in the making if he can spot sharks in the water (who would have thought that was a shark!) Great shot of all the kids pointing - and brave I say under the circumstances, I would been heading towards Coffs Harbour by then. And that first shot from today's post - totally majestic. Hope you're going well. Renee
