The Beauty of the Earth

"Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the Lord is the great God, and the great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His, for He made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker."

Psalm 95:2-6

As Fall is now here, as I am outside or as I look outside the window I see, hear, and smell so much in God's creation that I am thankful for. It's just amazing when you look around and think that He has created each and every thing that we see and has made it's intricate design. How He created the weather and the seasons. It is just incomprehensible. He has given us this beautiful earth to enjoy. I was able to take a short little trip this weekend and was able to see so many beautiful things as we drove. Here are some of the things that I noticed this week and am thankful for.

154~ smell of burning leaves

155~ beautiful scenic drive to Michigan with all the leaves on the trees changing color, so many beautiful colors to enjoy

156~ a beautiful and unique leaf with a red tip

157 ~ corn stalks tied together

158~ bushel full of apples

159~ a dirt road

160~ trees bearing fruit

161~ corn fields

162~ pumpkins

163~ gorgeous blue sky with the most perfect white puffy clouds

164~ mums

As the seasons change, I hope you will take the time this week to enjoy God's creation and thank Him for the beauty you see all around you.

There were also a few other things I was thankful for throughout the week also.

165~ A Mom's weekend away with uplifting seminars

Wow, you really got me hooked on the season! With my broken ankle I don't get out much, so I guess this is the only way I can feel like I'm actually out there enjoying it all.

Have a blessed week!

Lovely list! I miss having a true autumn season (in southern CA I believe there are only 1 1/4 seasons) so I love your photos and could almost smell that damp, dirt road.
