Several years ago I had the priviledge of enjoying one Mr Stafford's excellent nature presentations. His photographs where exceptional. He thoughtfully gave me a DVD of his presentation so that I might share his photos with my husband; thus, we were able to enjoy his photography on more than one occasion. “May the Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, ...guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." __Philippians 4:7
