Thoughts After Midnight

"You can talk to me, lamb, I'll keep your secrets"

"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1

My how things change in life in a short period of time! When I first started this blog I was needing a way to express the thoughts going thru my head about myself, my God and my photos. And I searched thru blogland looking for some similar bloggers & made contact with several of you through your blogs because of this.

At the time I couldn't believe how many 'stay at home mom' type of blogs there were. Having no desire to start having children at that time, I most likely skimmed past those blogs in order to read others.

Hard to believe I'm one of those types now, my whole world suddenly changed & consumed by this tiny miracle of life called 'baby'.

While things like nature photography, hiking & adventures have gone on the back-burner, life has become a new sort of adventure I suppose. No time to photograph God's outdoor beauty, there are no shortage of subjects indoors. Like chubby toes, gummy smiles, and downy hair.

And my body may not be healed enough to go hiking yet, but a walk to town with a stroller is the newest outdoor challenge for us, small wheels bumping over side-walk joints and the fervent wish that a small boy will stay asleep while getting the benefit of the fresh air & God-made vitamin D.

As the season changes outside to my favourite season of fall, the colors slowly change, I'm no less reminded of God's majesty in creation but those thoughts fall by the wayside as I am awestruck of His miracle creation of my son.

Yes, things change! Thank you, Lord, for changes, outdoors, indoors & in our hearts.


  1. Great to see you blogging again.

    I'm sure that as you and him take those sidewalk hikes in search of fresh air and God's homemade (or should I say Heaven made)vitamin D, little Ethan will grow to love this Autumn season as much as you do.

  2. He looks so cute and cuddly. Hopefully he sleeps sometimes. My first one took long naps in the afternoon, but I had to wake him up after 2 hours or he wouldn't go to bed at night until late. (I'm speaking of him when he was a bit older than yours.)

    The second son only took 20 minute naps here and there---NO REST for mom.

    Even though you don't have time for some of your interests...your photography is as wonderful as ever. Those are great pictures of your son.

  3. Oh Beck!

    What lovely pics! So hard to believe he is so big already! :)

    Amen and amen, His creative work is wonderful in nature and our humanity.~G

  4. I think you said it perfectly. What miracles these little wee ones are. We are truly blessed!

  5. A beautiful miracle indeed my dear friend. You said it so well - a grand new adventure! Before long, you'll be taking him on jaunts through the woods.

    He's adorable!

    Lots of love,

  6. He's absolutely precious, from downy head to tiny toes. What an amazing thought that one day in the future you'll enjoy all the 'back burner' activities WITH your own son.

    Love the stripey leggings.

    How can one not believe in miricles!

  7. What an adorable baby- very cute indeed!!Congratulations - (I just got back to blogging )no wonder all those activities are back burner now

  8. He is so are truly blessed
