Around Town

The photo above is the view from my living room window. Perhaps just an okay view but I was surprised by how pretty the leaves were. It's been raining the last couple of days, so I knew the leaves would be gone soon, I wanted to get some photos.

When I went out yesterday I decided to grab my camera. I had some errands to do, I would be out anyway, the sky was overcast so why not get some photos too.

I was enjoying driving around looking and thinking about the beauty God had created. I couldn't get over how pretty everything was. The rains had made everything look fresh and the overcast sky made everything seem to pop.

Occasionally I would come across a house decorated for Christmas with a wreath or some garland. Our attempt at making something pretty and festive...not saying anything is wrong with that, we are doing it too.. but I was struck with how pitiful our attempt at beauty was compared to what God was doing with his creation.

Appreciating today, the beauty that God has created for our enjoyment.

Maryann, that is a lovely view outside your window. Such pretty photos of fall colors. On Monday on my way to Cedar Key, we saw a few trees along side the road that could almost qualify for a fall tree. Hope you are having a great beginning to your weekend!

Truly beautiful. And, yes....HIS glory is reflected in His creation. How well He displays it all! Your living room view is lovely. Hugs, Camille

Mary Ann, those pics are just beautiful and of course, God is the greatest creator and artist of all. We can try all we want to no avail to match His creativeness. Enjoyable!

Beautiful. This reminds me of Benjamin coming in the other evening saying..Mom, it is just beautiful outside, the leaves, the sky..everything. It made me smile that he was noticing the handy work of our Lord.
