An Evening in the Orchard :: The Rosen Family

Jan2014 (19 of 363)

Shall we take a stroll down the foggy paths of England? Or walk through the olive groves in Israel? It felt as if we had stepped onto the different worlds of England and Israel all at once! Oh the beauty that surround us during this evening photoshoot! I am thrilled to share with your a few of our favorites from this evening walk through the almond orchards and olive groves! Not only was the evening perfect casting beautiful golden light, not only did we have an orchestra of birds serenading us while we roamed about, not only were Josh and I blessed to be capturing photos of a family so very dear to us, not only all that but the LORD was speaking to each of our hearts in a different way – in the midst of our surroundings I couldn’t help but hear the Lord gentley whisper to me, “All of the beauty is a reflection of Me. Search deeper, you will find Me.” May we continually seek the Creator of ALL this beauty that surrounds us! If we stand in awe of the glorious creation He has crafted then how much more will we stand in amazement, wonder, and awe of the One who is the Maker of ALL. The One whom all this beauty and glory is just a mere reflection of! I urge you to not just look at the surface of your surroundings but to search out The True Beauty. You will be amazed of all the differant and incredibal facets of our Lord which He reveals to us through glimpses of Him here on earth! The Lord showed me new facets of Him this evening and He is still layering more bit by bit! What a mighty God we serve! It would fill many, many pages on this blog. The spiritual significance of an almond tree and an olive tree, the buds blossoming, the oil poured forth, all of this and more is precious to the Rosen Family as well as to Josh and I. So what better or more fitting place then to take their family photos here. It was truly a gift from God.

“The word of the LORD came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.”
