Summer Begins To Fade

The Summer is nearing its end and I truly hate to see it go.  I thought I would share some photos from this very unusual summer of 2019.  We had 15 inches of extra rainfall so far this year – with lots of flooding and green lawns all through the summer – which is unusual.

These crows are looking up as they view summer drifting away.

This Wren decided to raise its young in my pot of lettuce.  Never got to eat this lettuce – it went to seed.

Hope you enjoyed nature this summer as much as I did.

Communing With The Cows

There I was once again – boots on, in my pajamas in the yard trying to capture another gorgeous sunrise.  So peaceful out in my country yard – dew sparkling on the grass at 5:45 A.M.  Then I got side tracked and began to talk to the cows in the pasture – just across the fence.  I must be Mrs. Dr. Do-Little, because I talk to all the creatures I meet.

God just makes some of the most spectacular scenes for us to view.  Thank you Lord for another wonderful beginning to another beautiful day.

Early Morning

I am usually still up when my husband retires for the night.  I am up in the early morning for 2 or 3 hours before my husband arises.  Insomnia is a big problem for me. but seeing the sunrise when it appears is the best part of the day.  The sunrise this morning after 5 inches of rain yesterday – was not as colorful as usual, but I can still see the beauty of God’s morning display in the sky.

Anything in nature is a thrill for me.  We all have to agree that God created a beautiful world for us to enjoy.  The joy in a sunrise is missed by a lot of people in the world, because they fail to pause and take in the beauty that surrounds them.  I give a big sigh as I photograph each morning’s sunrise and realize what others have missed.  I always show the sunrise to my husband who would miss it – if I did not show him what I have captured in my camera lens each early morning.

James 3: 17-18  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Viewing Above

I find when the antics of those in the world upset me – looking above the earth and viewing the sky brings me peace.  I cannot believe the colors that God spreads across the sky.  The television news  is depressing beyond belief.  Why they fail to show much more of the good news that happens in this world is beyond me.  I still believe there are more good people in this world – than there are bad.  I would like to hear the good stories.IMG_6920.JPG
