Maine Lights

Back in August, Tim and I went to Maine for a long weekend. This month we vacationed in Maine with my brother and his wife, Chris and Carol Lutz. We'd planned this trip for a year, and it lived up to our expectations.

We arrived in Portland and after lunch went to see the Portland Lighthouse.


It was majestic and beautiful, and we couldn't have picked a better day to see it.



The next day we walked out to the Rockland Lighthouse. It's an amazing experience. You walk out on huge rocks that are somehow held together to make a path through the water to the lighthouse.




Here's Tim with Chris and Carol.

That's how our vacation started. Maine's coast is beautiful and rugged, and we saw the leaves starting to turn red and yellow. I'll share more about our trip later.







Psalm 8: 1-4
Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
2 Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

Lighthouse of the Week

I love lighthouses and began collecting lighthouse charms, ornaments, and trinkets years ago. I discovered when you collect something, others notice and add to your collection.

Recently my brother and sister-in-law went to Maine. They took a picture of the Portland Head Lighthouse and sent it to me.


Isn't it beautiful?

And you know what made it even better? A close up picture of the American flag flying.



Thanks to Chris and Carol for sharing these beautiful pictures!
