As fall is under way and winter is sure to follow,I thought it would be appropriate to share some beauty I have found recently.
The lake west of Morden,is not all that large but I do like going there,because I am assured of finding beauty.
On my last visit there,I was looking for fall colours and did find some,but I found beauty that had nothing to do with fall colours.The sun was shining brightly and scattering diamonds across the water.
The gentle colours of fall add to the beauty seen on the water.I always feel like someone has taken a hand full of diamonds and tossed them on the water.
In this picture the focus is a little more on the foliage,but take note of the sparkles on the water.
You knew that I would have to zoom in for a closer look.I like diamonds like this.They are free to all who will take the time to stop and look.My response to these is to give thanks to my God for giving these to me.
I found out recently that even a dirty and sometimes stinky marsh can be gorgeous.I guess I always knew this,but this picture really shows that beauty. As the sun was setting at the Kaleida Marsh,it painted a silvery path across the water.The sun itself is one large diamond in the sky.
Canadians have just celebrated Thanksgiving and my friends in the USA will do so in a few weeks.
I believe that each day should be Thanksgiving day,after all,we have so much to give thanks for,that one day is not enough time.With that in mind,I give you the thought for today:
Happiness is waking up and beginning each day
by counting our blessings and kneeling to pray.
