Now Discovering the US state of Washington, with @sarah.bethea.
The northwestern-most state of the contiguous United State, Washington borders Idaho to the east, bounded mostly by the meridian running north from the confluence of the Snake River and Clearwater River. Can you guess the name of this spot? #thediscoverer#nowdiscovering

I'm really doing terrible this week, with the green theme. It's such a miserable day here today and back lit is not going to happen. I wanted to have another go at photographing through glass and trying to reduce the reflections. My Galileo thermometer came to the rescue. A little high key and all these cool refractions and colour reflections from the other glass balls, really caught my eye ❤️ #cy365#day81#blue#refractions#reflections#littlestoriesofmylife#hiyapapayaphotoaday
Do you ever look at your younger self and think ~ Oh, if she only knew. •
I sometimes look at this picture as I write about all the good things the Lord has revealed to my heart and mind. All the good things that are found in Him. I can’t help but think two things.
1~ I miss that girl.
I miss her fire and her free heart to love everyone without asking if she can trust them.
I miss her ability to be quick to smile as she enjoyed so much of what life had for her. Not that I don’t see that in her still but it seems to take a little more intentionality to bring it out. I miss her tone arms and her energy.
I miss her drive to conquer the world for Jesus.
I miss her.
2~ I look and see a girl who had no idea that her fire for godliness and integrity would take her down a hard road where others would not value that quality in her. She had no idea that her desire to love everyone as, God would lead her, would leave her with a lack of trust in people.
She has no clue that her smile would fade as her heart would break over so many things that she could not conquer. She will learn that everything is not hers to conquer. But she will learn slowly she is called to be still and know He is God and she is not.
As I do miss the girl I use to be I am so very grateful for the women God has made me to be. He has given me grace to be me at this moment, at this place and time.
This same girl still enjoys all that life has given her because in it all she sees her Savior.
She has learned to let go of somethings that use to hold on so tightly to so that she can take hold of her Inheritance. Her Jesus. •
Everything she hopes to be has a deeper meaning and that deeper understanding ushered in a freedom from what she thought her life should be.
As she found what He has for her to be her delight.
That girl is still around with a deeper understanding of love, joy, hope, and grace. I am so very grateful for who she is in Christ. •
She is still a work in progress, just as her flabby arms are. 💪🏼
| How autumnal life is, at its core: ever-changing, expectant, dying and decaying but hopeful for the promise of renewal, simultaneously vibrant and fading, always boasting of the gold that makes a home in the many facets, the ebb and flow, the love and the loss. What a great gift; what a greater Giver. | #reflections#autumn#happytuesday#life#gold#changingseasons#northwestisbest
