God's Canvas

Every morning before work, I take a little time and head down to the water for some TAWG. We live across from Canada and the Blue Water Bridge connects the two countries. I started taking pictures of the awesome sunrises that I see every morning. I thank God for this beautiful scenery and the time I get to share with him. Here is a sample of a few of the pics I have been able to take.

I hope you enjoyed a little snippet of my mornings around here.
God Bless,

Favorite day of the year? my kids birthdays

How do you vent anger? Yell and cry

What was your favorite toy as a child? I loved my dolls. I loved playing school.
