I was trying to catch the last of this summer’s wildflowers on our greenway system down by the river. The drier season of Fall has set in so the flowers are starting to fade away, but there’s always next Spring! I hope you have a blessed and good Saturday.
Golden Rod Wicked, wicked Golden Rod Without hardly even one single nod Your pollen’s unceasing furies Are unleashed With only one breath My eyes begin to weep, Of course, also the drippy nose I feel I sneeze From my head to my toes So, even though I am enchanted By your deceitful beauty's glances Within the earth so deeply planted Too close I dare not ever linger As you are for me the bringer Of each breath’s struggle And cause me to curse all the troubles your fall beauties scatter broadly in the air!
Just wanted to show all the lush greenness along our walking greenway for one last time before it starts to fade. One of our neighbors on the greenway has a beautiful backyard with a pond which has a huge water fountain in the middle. Looking at all that natural beauty so early in the morning is not a bad way to start my day. However, it is getting drier here, and fall is starting so some of the plants are just beginning to wilt and leaves turn brown. I complain about the heat but then miss it when the winter’s cold hits. I hope everyone has a good day and Praise God for His goodness!
Reach for the Deep (not the shallows) Inside each soul Lie such uncharted depths Deep, Sometimes still Sometimes they flow Quickly, rapidly Furiously But nevertheless Permanently present Reach for those depths Within Waiting to be known Discovered Desiring, needing to be filled That burning hunger Unfulfilled, unsatiated Except by life’s truths Raise your eyes Toward heavenly skies Answers can be shown Just waiting to flow, Covering each, every Truly seeking heart Deeper levels to life Can and will start Only God can fill Your empty depths!
I managed to get a couple of shots of the beautiful, white crepe myrtles before the heavy rain knocked off their blooms. Hope you enjoy. Below is a poem for Saturday.
Purity White, Gleaming, dazzling As the sun blazes Giving out life Yet even brighter Your precious face Beams Without boundaries Knowing no limits Your Love lifts each & All Upward to share in The glory of life Originally intended Oh, Lord Jesus Send your glorious Pure White Love, Eternity’s Purity, My way, each & Every day Offset satan’s darkness We wait with eager hearts For your glorious return!!
Praise God and have a great day!
We got a break in the rain today so I pulled out the old bicycle and did my usual ride on our greenway system. Today was different in that there were fewer people out because it was still cloudy and looked like it might rain at any second, but the ride was worth the risk. It was nice to not have the sun out. It made it so much cooler even though, as it usually is here in the southern United States, the humidity was very high. It makes the air feel sometimes like walking around in a warm, thick blanket you wish you could get rid of but unfortunately cannot.
Most of our regular walkers must have stayed in because of the rain threat so for most of my ride I had the greenway pretty much to myself. It was very relaxing, and I shared the morning with mostly a few stately old trees and wildflowers still clinging on through to the end of August. It was very peaceful and quiet. Nature’s beauty can have a calming effect if you will allow it to. Thank You and Praise You, God, for making the world so beautiful just for our pleasure! Below is a quick poem that came in the middle of my bike ride. Have a blessed day!!
Nature will talk If you will take the time To listen Allow yourself a walk Among the unspoken words She's anxious to say Always attempting To improve your day!
