Nature is God's balm, His infusion of love in an often cruel world.
Come, let's walk together...may these photos and the detail of God's creation bring balance and perspective to your day as it did to mine.
Today out in God's creation I found solace, peace and was given a gentle reminder...
Here is what God showed me.
The bud of a leaf...
Daffodils in the neighbors yard...
My walk took me from the top of this plateau to the bottom of the canyon beneath Layer Cake Mountain shown in the distance.
God's decorations...now where do you think the idea of a Christmas ball came from?
Bright green moss growing on a mighty pine...
At closer Inspection...detail and delicate patterns emerged.
Star crossed lovers...these trees were drawn together as they grew.
God thought the scenario above was so interesting He doubled His effort.
Tiny yellow bells hang on a delicate bright green stalk.
Here is that yellow bell at closer inspection...That's my old finger tip tenderly holding new life.
Snowflake like formations on a rock.
Sunlight filtering through the towering pines at the bottom of the canyon
New born leaves...
Sunflowers dotted the hillside in a rich splash of color...
At closer inspection you will see a Honey Bee hard at work.
Moss bringing life to a dead limb, and the beauty of a pine branch against the cerulean blue.
Wild flowers with their face to the sun...or should I say THE SON?
My Puppy...having the time of her life exploring while I take photos.
A delicate white cluster about as big as a finger tip...had it not been for the carpet of white they created in hundreds, I would have missed them.
Can you find the bird? This one sure had a pretty song to sing...
The bough of a spruce with sunlight on its shoulder.
Every color beckoned.
Every snapshot a story to tell.
What do you think I learned?
There is one much wiser than I. There is One much greater than I. There is One who holds all nature in His hands.
SURELY HE CAN HOLD ME!
