Autumn Beauty

Kenneth and I spent some time today driving around and playing  with our camera in manual mode.  There are so many beautiful things to see in this area.  The colors are all changing to russett, amber, gold and cinnamon.  I love this time of year.  Cooler temperatures, coffee, quilts and harvest moons.  It's magical.

Every where you look God's hand is at work creating his artwork.  It is a testimony in itself of God's very existence...."For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God."  Romans 1:20 NLT

Isn't it breathtaking?.. And telling of his power..That he can simply speak words and his exquisite pallete comes to life.  "The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born." Psalms 33:6 Do you ever stop to consider how lucky we are?  That God wants to please us so much that he paints our environment with sunlight, color and such painstaking detail?  Do you ever take time to praise him for his effort?
Let every created thing give praise to the LORD, for he issued his command, and they came into being. Psalms 148:5
For all the animals of the forest are mine, and I own the cattle on a thousand hills. Psalms 50:10
That verse comes to mind every time we drive by this landscape of rolling hills.  Isn't it amazing when God's word comes to life?
Call me crazy but when I was shooting this cow, I couldn't help but laugh.  She looked like a grumpy old woman who wasn't too happy about me taking her picture.
This beauty however seemed sad to see us go.  I think he enjoyed us nuzzling his neck.
Whatever road you find yourself traveling down this season..take a moment to stop and take it all in.
And remember to thank him for it all...even the very breath he is giving you this moment to sustain your life.
God, the LORD, created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth. Isaiah 42:5
The Word (Jesus) gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.
John 1:4
