Cricket's Thoughts

Life Is Perfectly Balanced

Surrounded in nature, a sense of peace and comfort begins to penetrate the wall of protection I have built around me, slowly filtering through the cracks.



A favorite quote floats into my thoughts. God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Peace In The Woods


I am finding that although I am alone, I am not lonely.

At Dusk


Life is perfectly balanced here, in my special hideaway from the world.

      I stayed in that spot until the sun disappeared on the horizon. It was so beautiful. You would have loved it!

    On the whole, it definitely is. Though it often doesn’t feel like it.

    What type of camera is that?

      I use an old Canon EOS 400D (XTi) and I had Canon 75-300mm lens on.

    Lovely, restful pictures. Quietly gathering strength for spring but at peace in the moment. Beautiful post, Cricket.

      What a beautiful way to look at it Deb! It is already green out in the open, but back in the woods, spring has not quite yet arrived. 🙂
