I knew something didn't look quite right on my previous post, but couldn't put my finger on it until this morning. A couple of pictures I'd intended to include had been left out.

So much beauty. Such a difficult choice. LOL



"...Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory
(Isaiah 6:3)

Look at the masterpieces God's paint brush has created. Does this not take your breath away? When I look around and see myself surrounded by all this beauty, it sure does mine. I keep taking so many pictures, it was a real challenge trying to decide which ones to include in this post.



A couple of days ago, I celebrated a landmark birthday (though I'm not telling which one. LOL) It was a gorgeous day, perfect weather for walking, and so I took my camera with me.

As I basked in the beauty surrounding me, I felt so blessed, and started thinking of how good the Lord has been to me even though I've been far from deserving. I thought of the awesome things He has done in my life over this last decade, and the unexpected surprises He delighted me with for my birthday--such as a laptop I've been dreaming about for quite some time now, but didn't really expect to materialize. But then fear started to get the upper hand.

With the joy of each birthday surprise came a pang of concern that something bad was about to follow. Can anyone relate to this?

I have to run now, but am planning to write more about it on my other blog--http://atfootofcross.blogspot.com/--when I get back. The post is still ruminating around my mind, but I do have a title picked out--OLD SUPERSTITIONS DIE HARD!


Pictures I took while out for a walk—some last blooms of summer and some harbingers of fall. This place is so lovely, I feel blessed to be living in the midst of it.
