Changes

September has brought changes.
There are signs that autumn is on its way.
There are more and more leaves underfoot.
Acorns have began falling. Soon the squirrels and chipmunks will be busy gathering winter's fare.

These are all subtle and slow changes serving to remind us that seasons come and seasons go.  We know this is to be expected.

It is the unexpected changes that leave us reeling.  We know with certainty that life will never be quite the same.

Such was 9/11 fifteen years ago.  Today I am remembering all those ordinary folks who didn't see the changes coming but in a terrible moment's time became extraordinary heroes!  Please join me in "looking up" !  Have a blessed week.

Welcome September


Look what appeared to welcome September.   Yes a double rainbow!

With summer being so dry we had not seen this lovely sight for quite some time.

It always reminds me of God's special promise found in Genesis 9.

"I have set my rainbow in the clouds
and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind.

  
Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life."  vs. 13-15.

May everyone have a blessed start to September.  

Hugs Debbie

P.S.  Don't forget to "look up" you just might see a rainbow too.

Faith

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."   Hebrews 11:1

This week I have been "looking up" and keeping mine.   Hope all of you are as well.


Have a blessed week!

A Summer Landscape

Pastel Painting
The view from our hilltop inspired me a few evenings ago to paint this summer landscape.
It is a familiar scene that never fails to move me.   Often there will be cattle grazing on the hillside or deer in the meadow.

In the sky there may be a Red-Tailed Hawk on the wing.




Moth Hummingbird
Moths and butterflies flutter to the wildflowers that grow there.








For sure and for certain it is a place that is close to my heart.

Do you have a special spot that inspires you to paint,  take a photo, or write a poem?    If so I hope you will share.

Have a blessed week.

"Singing in the Rain"

This weekend brought us some much needed rain.  To celebrate I am sharing this link to the old song performed by Gene Kelly... "Singing in the Rain"...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmCpOKtN8ME












The sunflowers thought they would join in














 as well as the Rose of Sharon

















and Queen Anne's Lace.


Think I will too!



Hope everyone has a lovely week.
