This morning I awoke and went into the living room and as I was sitting on the couch I glanced outside. "When did this happen?" I glanced at the tree across the street from our house. This morning the leaves are all red, and the last time I looked they were still green. After spending a few days in bed being sick, the sight of the red leaves was a real surprise! I looked at the other trees from my window and sure enough there were a variety of colors that I had not previously noticed. The beauty of the world around me seems to be almost exploding! Today even the sky looks bluer. What a beautiful time of year to enjoy the outdoors. In my case it is from a window and from my back deck. I can't help but to think deeply and carefully how God is our Creator. I've reflected on His goodness and His love. This morning I noticed that even the squirrels seemed to have an added energy as they were busy rustling in the leaves. I sat outside on the deck and allowed the warmth of the sun to shine down on my face. For just a few moments I felt as if I were taken far away from my problems and discomfort and I felt totally content and good and happy!
It's amazing what even a momentary "mini- vacation" can do for the spirit!
Learning to Trust God . . . In the Moments of Life . . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
