Fall Color-Natural Beauty

Even as the leaves fall and some limbs become barren, the beauty of the woods remain. There is still dark red, golden yellow and brown leaves. The twisted limbs and vines, have a beauty that I think is very attractive also.  You just cannot improve natural beauty.

The Red Fox Squirrel Can You Find Him?

We have a Red Fox Squirrel family that remains year after year in the same area of our yard. We now regard them as our wild pets and enjoy watching them from inside our home. They are beautiful. A couple of years ago, I shared this same photo that I took of the colorful fall leaves. I realized I actually had a picture of the squirrel hidden amongst the leaves. See if you can find him. I have a photo to post Wednesday showing where he is.

BE STILL

#LookListenSeeGod#Amaryllis

   BE STILL

Be still in the moment.
Listen, look at life.
Acknowledge Him.
          

 

 

PSALMS 46:10

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! NKJV

As freezing temperatures approached,  I  cut the stem and brought the blooms inside.

Keep Me Focused On The Purpose

While walking in my yard yesterday and I noticed an amaryllis bulb that had grown and produced a  strong stem with a richly colored bud.

Single Amaryllis Bulb Focused on Its Purpose

 

I knew it was  getting ready to open into a beautiful amaryllis flower. This is the first year for one stem to grow by itself. There are many more bulbs at the same spot that have not grown yet.  I was fascinated by this one amaryllis fulfilling its purpose, all alone, yet strong and beautiful. Hence the poem below:

 

focused on the purpose

 

Job 14:1-2
Man born of woman
is short of days and full of trouble.
He blossoms like a flower, then withers;
he flees like a shadow and does not last.
