    My friend:
    I saw your post at Picturing God a month ago today. I have thought of your work almost daily since. It has had a profound impact on me. As I drive to and from the schools my children attend, I take in the landscape: farm fields, a creek, distant mountains. I have four children and it is not unusual for me to make this round trip between school and home 6 times in one day. A mere 10 minute ride each way has suddenly become 2 hours in the car. But now I think often of your pictures of your dock and how the subtle changes of light and season make each photo marvelously different. And I look at my own landscape as I drive with a new awareness and wonder. How is this different from yesterday? From 6 hours ago? It awakens a new gratitude–which is, of course, the beginning of prayer. Thank you for your work. As I try to find voice for the talents with which I have been blessed, I am encouraged by your example. I pray that your formation as a Spiritual Director will bear much fruit. Evidence suggests that you are well on your way.
    Your friend in Christ,
    Tom

      Tom,
      I don’t know what to say. I can tell you that immediately after I read your note, I grabbed my camera and went outside to take a picture. I read your note in disbelief and then awe. Thank you for sharing your story. It never ceases to amaze me that when I do my thing, whatever it is, God will do His. I am deeply delighted to hear about your new looking. Enjoy. It is wild. Thank you for your prayers for my formation as a spiritual director (they are deeply appreciated by me, God, and my directees). You are in my prayers–in gratitude and in hope. Your friend in our awesome God, Jamie

        Dear Jamie:
        I didn’t realize it’s been so close to a year since I’d first written you. Perhaps that is one reason I’ve been thinking again about your photos and how they influenced me. After the kids all get off to school each morning, I’ve been walking. I often think of you as I reach a little footbridge and I lift you up in prayer. Sometimes I take a picture with my cell phone: raccoon or deer tracks, bubbles trapped in ice, the sun’s seasonal shift and the water’s reflection. Not art–just a way to remind myself that I took the time to notice. Wanted you to know. Hope God’s continuing to bless you and your ministry.
        Blessings,
        Tom
