Walking along the banks of the Willamette River near my home, I was excited to share the beauty of the area with my young Friend, Casi. She was seeking new willow for basket weaving. We also share a passion for herbs and wild plants, so I enjoyed learning how to use them. For example, I learned the leaves, flowers and berries of the Hawthorne tree are not only good for high blood pressure, but can soothe the wheezing breath of an asthmatic.
I took many pictures of sky and waters. I was sure I had captured a face in the clouds. Several days later, when I looked at the pictures from our walk, I could hardly believe what I saw.
I often sense the supernatural--the footsteps and Presence of Him whom I love, as I walk in the forests, slip down to my beloved river, or work among the plants in my garden. As you see, we were not alone.
Above you see my original photo of His sweet face, as I first caught glimpse of Him in the clouds.
