Counting Blessings with Pictures ~ Part I

So this past midsummer a trip was planned to visit Jennie's sister and brother-in-law in northern California. After learning that the cancer had returned, I debated for quite some time whether I should still go out. I decided to go although I did choose to shorten the trip by a few days. 
It was a wonderful blessing! My heart was refreshed by walking through great quantities of God's inspiration. Some of the most stunning and ruggedly beautiful country I have ever seen. The next couple posts will be a small kaleidoscope of our trip together. Most all of the pictures were taken by Jennie - I was too busy wandering about or having wonderful conversations with dear friends. 
~ Enjoy!

sisters :) 

Bug's Beach 

 One of those rare sunny days along the coast!

Tidepool hopping - no pictures of the graceful blue-green anemones and lovely purple and gold starfish due to camera safety regulations.

The lights of San Francisco from Muir Beach overlook

Beautiful pictures, Caitlin! I think about you often and am praying for you. I miss you! You are my inspiration today. I'm reminded of a choir blessing we used to sing in highschool (it is in the hymnal as well and Numbers 6) "The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace." Love and prayers for you, friend!

So lovely! All of the pictures are amazing, but I was particularly in awe of the last one of the lights along the shore! Love you Caitlin!<3
