This book is written in a poetry format as a piece of children’s literature. The words allow a lilting pentameter which is enhanced by paintings of real photographs that undeniably show Spirit’s Presence in this world.
For years, Marian has been spending time in nature and taking photographs during many of these excursions. Sometimes she would be spending time in prayer and reflection, and other times she would just be pointing her camera and snapping pictures, only to find amazing visuals in the photographs when she would get them developed. This book has been on her mind through years of experiencing nature and taking many photographs. It is written in a poetry format as a piece of children’s literature. The words allow a lilting pentameter which is enhanced by illustrations of real photographs. She wants to share her belief that God’s presence is all around us and to heighten awareness of our everyday surroundings and the possibility of experiencing nature in many different ways.
