Fall Surprises (pics included)

Thursday, October 18, 2012

So, after working like crazy all spring, summer and doing one final "fall cleanup" a couple of weeks ago, I went outside this morning to take a peek. Here is what I found:

Red and yellow 4 O'clocks really make for a pretty fall morning, don't ya think? emoticon

A gorgeous and perfect red 4 O'clock

Busy as a bee is what I should be, but everyone has to stop and smell the flowers from time to time, right? emoticon emoticon emoticon

And the best part is, my roses are in full bloom!


And it got me to thinkin....

Matthew 6:28-- ďAnd why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin." NIV

Why do we worry so much about how we don't look perfect? God created each of us in a special way. Are we expected to protect our temples with good health? Absolutely! But, this is just another component of life's journey. So, enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer as a fine example of God's creations! I know when I look at these beautiful flowers, I recognize that because I have nurtured them, they have gained new life and bloomed into the greatness God made them to be. Aren't we that way? Blessings! emoticon

    Beautiful flowers! Your thumb is definitely greener than mine! (smile) Thanks for sharing! If you are on the east coast, you are probably getting a lot of rain and wind today with Hurricane Sandy! Stay safe!

    Thank you for sharing these gorgeous flower photos!! Thoroughly enjoyed them as the last of our flowers have disintegrated in the cold.
Here is to caring for our minds and bodies as tenderly as we care for our precious gardens..
Have a Fantastic Friday!

    Beautiful photos! And one of my favorite verses, too. I'm guilty at times of feeling like I need to "help" God do His thing. He probably gets a lot of laughs out of watching me in action.

Worrying can't add a day to your life -- but it can stress you enough to take them away.

Thanks for sharing your insights!
