To God be the Glory

If anyone can look at the beauty of God's creation and say there is no God, he must surely be blind!!

On Monday of this week we saw that our local mountains were all dusted with snow, and it being a warm day .. cloudy with bursts of sunshine, we could not stay indoors. We started off with a walk , then decided to take a quick drive. ! The splendor of fall colors against snow topped mountains was indeed breathtaking.
The following photos show some of the beautiful scenes we enjoyed

I know the photos give but a hint of the real, but may they lift your soul in praise to the One who said rightly of His creation "It is good!"


The Woolly Bear caterpillar on my plant sports a broad red belt. According to folklore, that indicates a mild winter coming.
The early mountain snows seem to indicate otherwise.

From my kitchen window.



Walking up the berm beside our house.


We then turned back and went for a drive.




God's golden carpet.


see the wisp of a cloud lingering on the mountainside?


a beautiful hillside farm

see the heavy snowfall on the mountain to the right?
These cows all gathered to serenade me in true bellow fashion


aren't the best views of life along the narrow way?

Talk about a perch! See the house way at the top?

They would have an incredible view of the valleys and
surrounding mountains.

a gorgeous valley, that was for sale.... hmmm .. wonder how much?
the photo was free.


The above a close up view of the snow dusted mountain

against a momentary blue sky.










a waterfall beside the road - almost home again

When I see your pictures I'm reminded of a little quote from yesterday's Daily Bread...
"When we cease to wonder, we cease to worship." May we never tire of the beauty around us!
