“And one called to another and said, ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!” Isaiah 6:3
“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!”
It was such a beautiful evening on Monday. In front of me, the sky was dark with heavy cloud and behind me a bright sun was going down, shining it’s glorious light on the trees. God has created such a beautiful world for us to enjoy and admire. Almost every day I see something of delight, today it was the bright red ball of berries from a Jack in the Pulpit flower. No longer a flower, but berries on a short stalk between two big green leaves. The stream is low but still trickling along, I like to close my eyes and listen to it. I rested my cheek against a pine tree and could smell the pitch. The sky is clear and bright blue today and smells so sweet.
The sunflower at the front steps inspires me. Though it was damaged twice, it continued to recover and bloom. Three blossoms instead of the one. Incredible.
The leaves here are just starting to change color, and when they are at peek what a stunning view it will be. The children will collect fallen leaves and dark brown acorns off the ground and show them to us. We will go apple picking and to the pumpkin patch. I am slowly collecting costumes for Halloween. I just drank a glass of cold cider, we put on jackets this morning, and the goldenrod is in full bloom.
I’m thankful for this time of year.
