Sunday Blessings




It had been a stressful morning so I headed outside to the backyard  to take a breather.

The day was autumn glorious with brilliant sunshine and perfect temperatures.

Leaves on nearby trees shimmered in gold, orange and scarlet finery.



Sitting on a seat near the patio table,  I looked up at the heavens, fighting tears.

Frothy white clouds moved by quite rapidly and watching them lifted my spirits. 

  A bird, taking a solo  flight, soared blissfully in the sky and gracefully spread his  wings as he dipped in mid-air, quiet and free, without a care in the world.

Nearby, on land, other birds happily sang, filling the air with cheerful chirps.

Surrounded by such incredible beauty made my heart sing even though the season is bittersweet.  

There's a sadness in my heart when thinking about  autumn ending.

However, when I finally got up to go back into the house to do numerous chores, my entire being felt renewed.

A short  time in nature made me realize how insignificant my problems really are in the general scheme of things.


God is in charge-----of even the tiniest detail of life---- and that's  all that really matters. 

 
WISHING EACH PERSON READING THIS A DAY OF PEACE, GENTLENESS AND LOVE.

♥ I kind of "claimed" your wishes for a day of peace, gentleness and love. (I could use them.)

Hope your Sunday is a restful one and that you continue to hold on to the perspective you gained while contemplating the beauty of autumn.

You caught my own feelings. Our last few days have been gorgeous outside! Trying to soak it up but know you can't stockpile autumn like you can summer fruits! Have a good Sunday...

I hope you are feeling more peaceful, sweet friend. It was a beautiful fall day here today and that definitely helps to lift the spirits. We have had so much rain and gloom. xo Laura

Gorgeous day here and I had a lovely view of the Pacific Ocean from a friends home this afternoon. The weather couldn't have been nicer. I thank the LORD each and every day. Nature is so peaceful and calming.
