Stepping Stones

Quiet moments often linger.
In the stillness

awe struck
Night sky

Stars twinkling 
Sparking thoughts 

of adventure
Stepping stones 

across streams
Waterfalls crashing 

into pools

of running water
Giant vistas overhead

Whispering clouds 

Silhouettes of sun beams
As the path comes into view

New adventures to be had

Late evening musings

There are perks to being a reluctant night owl at times. It’s usually these times when I’m most inspired to write. 

Tonight’s musings. Currently untitled.
Summer nights
No slumber


Rushing too and fro
Sweet silence of the night

Longing to return

to a place my heart 

calls home

Even now

Still in wonder

of the glorious creation

He has made 
Of mountain tops


Stormy nights

and thunder 
Bright sunsets 

Clouds and embers

River reflections
Still in wonder
– C.Farish


New adventures in familiar places 

So after my USA adventures.. Another new adventure has begun. I got off a 7 1/2 flight.. Got a train back to Yorkshire. Packed and headed up to Lancashire. 

I am loving being nearer my sister and brother-in-law.. I’m also enjoying lodging with wonderful friends Amy and Matt.

And views like this.

and this..


Happy birthday USA.. 4th July Celebrations

Had great fun celebrating USA Independence Day with some new friends.. A whole evening early on July 3rd.. The fireworks display was at Long’s Park in Lancaster Pennsylvania. 

It was a little strange to be celebrating the independence of a former British Colony. But still fun.

Please don’t loose your wonder 


Please don’t loose your wonderOf the small

But beautiful moments
And remember that you are His

And He is yours 

Who conquered the grave 

for you 
And set the stars in the sky

Just because 

And brought heaven down to earth 
Scattered wildflowers in meadows

To wander through

And to enjoy

The butterflies dancing amongst 

in the late evening light

Spring Days

Spring days filled with wonder

at the beauty of creation
Capturing moments

Standing in awe
Ever thankful

for each moment
Taking it in like a breath of fresh air

So good for the soul
In the stillness

calm waters

hope arises
As we wait.
