Living Word
the pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails.

Don't be Anxious

Fall Play

 A vegetable soup simmers away in the crock pot, apples cooked down and cooling off in one of my biggest pots, a load of clothes done, time to escape into God's beauty. It's a cool, damp, foggy day. The rains are said to be heavy tomorrow. I grab a sweater and the camera and head out the door.

I drive east

The fog is getting more dense the further I go.




The fog is so thick I barely can see cars until they are right up on me. So, I stop and pull into the parking lot of the school where my husband teaches. This is a rail by the school drive way.


Yay, Out of the fog! I head west back toward home. So beautiful. I pull over for this shot.


I decide to stop by our neighborhood park. About 2 miles from home. The next photos are along the walking/jogging path.



A brief peek of sun across the way




A pleasant walk



As I leave I stop at the end of the drive. This tree was to the left of me. I did not alter these photos. God's handiwork is truly this brilliant. 

This one to the right.

I enjoyed a brief playtime with Fall.
