DAY 63 Day of Rest & Favorite Photos

Day 63 of ReStart,  Sunday  Oct 11, 09

Hi Journal,

Jim is an early bird and loves to get up and catch the sunrise. He is out there with his camera before I'm even having my coffee!

He told me he loved this is actually the same general location at sunrise, on two different days. It is only about a 1/2 mile from downtown Phoenix Oregon, yet has a gorgeous rural feel to it.

One time a friend of his told Jim these were called "God-rays"...those lovely light beams shooting dramatically outward. Jim says he loves it when he finds them...that it feels exhilarating...and that they were "nifty looking". I thought that was cute... nifty looking. :-D

Enjoy the Journey,

Those pix are beautiful. We all need to feel those rays around us.

The photos are gorgeous! Very inspiring to me after Mass this morning (afternoon!).

Retta said...

MISSY M: Thank you, I'll let him know. :-)

GEORGIA MIST: I'm glad you liked them...I agree, inspiring is the word I would use, too.

Right now the song on my CD that is playing is saying "...I sing for joy at the works of your hand..."

Oh, Loretta, these photos are exhilirating! I feel as though I want to shout good morning to the whole world, even though it's afternoon right now. Tell Jim they are excellent! :)

Thanks for the sunshine. It's been raining and very dark the whole weekend. What a masterful artist.

Smiles to you

Retta said...

KAREN: Yes, shout! I will tell Jim, thank you.

SHELLI: I'm glad you liked them..we have rain in our forecast for Tues, so maybe the sunshine will come your way next. :-)

{ALL}: Thank you! And I doing fine now...hit a rough patch this last week, but got it straightened out now. Not looking forward to tomorrow's weigh in, though! But it will give me a place to go on from. Nice to hear from you. :-)

Hi Mary,
Yes, when I started this, it didn't take me long to realize I needed one day to rest and think and just have a break. I'm glad I did... also I get a real kick out of poking around in Jim's photo archives...too many to choose from!
