Through the Lens with Spring Happenings

I’ll just let the photos do most of the talking this time…

We got our goats this past weekend and boy are they fun to watch!! (Front to back: Vee, Tilly and Ebony)
Our pig is like, “ughhh we’ve been replaced!!” Poor guy!

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. —Colossians 1:16

Weekend Blessings!!

About For His Purpose~ My name is Alicia and I'm a thirty-something year old who loves Jesus. Only through God’s amazing grace and mercy I have been redeemed from past regret and shame. Reading His word has allowed me to look past Satan’s forceful lies, to see myself for who Christ says I am in Him. Through writing I have learned why I made the choices I made in my younger years and I now have a better understanding of why I desire to love God like crazy these days. Despite my daily failures, God remains faithful always. I am reassured of His unconditional love for me by every ink-drop spilled out on paper, each committed prayer as I cry out to Him, and deep understanding reflected through reading His word as truth. Yes keeping a blog will make me vulnerable to others’ opinions- there will be some who don’t understand, some who may criticize or judge, but on the other hand if just one piece expressed through my writing grabs someone’s attention and directs them to God, then pouring out my heart in a blog for the world to read is worth it. I choose to glorify Him alone through words streaming across a glowing screen. And it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t reveal the fact that I’m incredibly quirky; I’m my loving husband’s best friend, my vivacious kids’ craziest cheerleader and spiritual trainer (3 John 1:4). I love anything farmhouse and rustic style. I think cupping a warm coffee mug in the palm of my hands is more satisfying than the contents within. I share a common obsession with my husband for the mountains, but I would (without a doubt) settle for waves crashing against my legs at the Atlantic Ocean just as well, and I almost always have a Yorkie curled up on my lap while writing. *All photos are photographed by and therefore may not be stored or photocopied in any manner.

  2. Lovely photos, Alicia!! What is that purple and white flower that looks like two-in-one–a star-shaped purple flower inset with a round, five-petal white flower? It’s an attention-grabber for sure! And I agree with Debi from Seriously Seeking Answers: your photos help us appreciate more fully God’s wonders in creation. Thank you!

    1. Nancy! Most of those flowers are from my mama’s house and I’ll be there tomorrow so I’ll check with her!😉

      Yes we are people that are blessed beyond measure and I hope we wouldn’t take that for granted!!

      1. Thank you, Alicia. A fun coincidence occurred since I asked you that question. I “happened” to come across a picture of a columbine in a book, and recognized it from your blog post. I’m still glad your mother affirmed it for me, though! Thank you for your thoughtfulness to ask her on my behalf!

      2. Oh that’s so neat!! I love that you were aware and took notice in being able to spot it in the book! Just reminds me how God uses our senses each and everyday!
