He went out the mountain to pray… Luke 6:12

Perspectives from the Desert and Beyond

Sunset in the Nevada Desert

Where God Takes Me has been nominated for “A Thought-Provoking Blog Award”  by Lizzie Joy’s Photo Suite.   Lizzie Joy’s Photo Suite is “A Photographic Showcase and Travelogue with a Hint of the Divine.”  I’m truly honored to be nominated for this award by Lizzie Joy, whose blog is beautiful and inspiring.  I am particularly smitten with Lizzie Joy’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The rules for “A Thought-Provoking Blog Award” are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Pass the award on to 5 blogs you enjoy
  • Post the award logo

Seven things about me:

  1. In the Nevada desert, my evident smallness is pleasurable.
  2. When entering the desert, each new vista appears unique. 
  3. But in the midst of the desert, previously overlooked similarities in ranges, roads, knolls, trails, plains and peaks can be disorienting.
  4. I am prone to wandering in the desert; by the Grace of God, I have not become lost.
  5. My husband likes me to carry a walkie-talkie.
  6. Once my husband played the harmonica for me as the moon rose over Star Peak.
  7. He doesn’t really know how to play the harmonica yet.  He blows a few notes of Amazing Grace and to me it sounds like heaven.

There is diversity among the five blogs I enjoy and heartily nominate for “A Thought-Provoking Blog Award:”

  • A Leaf in Springtimea gentle, contemplative respite: each post by Sharon is replete with perspective deeply rooted in love
  • ‘Til the Storm Passes By — exquisite poetry reveals Moriah’s brilliance through a hard struggle with grief
  • Singing Sparrows — astute, irrepressible and funny Teju shares her candid perspectives on issues
  • Fictional MachinesJ.E. Lattimer is publishing one of his short stories in tiny increments, accompanied by original art work
  • whyilovewesttexas — in a voice as constant as the North Star, John reveals his love for the Lord through careful examination of west Texas farm life

Once again, I would like to thank Lizzie Joy for the honor of this nomination.
