FALL has arrived. Kip often says, "October is my favourite colour." I love that phrase. It is a season of change and what happens in nature is stunning: beautiful warm colours replace green leaves, the air is crisper and there is a special scent created by both of those changes which is intoxicating to me.
Kip and I stood on this bridge a few years ago. It was so peaceful and calm yet so vibrant and invigorating. As I settled down to prepare this post yesterday, I couldn't seem to come up with a "message" that seemed suitable. How do you find words when surrounded by a tapestry of beauty such as this?
I visually stepped into this photo and walked onto the bridge remembering how beautiful it all was. I stopped. A favourite song popped into my head as well as a favourite line in it: "Show me how to grow in beauty in God's sight."
As I recalled standing on that bridge I slowly took my time to really SEE the intense beauty around me. THIS is God's masterpiece. And so are we. But He designed and created US for communion with Him--for a relationship with Him which supersedes even the miracle of this natural beauty in His world. Within seconds I penned the words on this colourful image.
THIS is my personal prayer...I soooo want to grow in beauty in GOD'S sight. I want my life to be infused with His love--so I can love when it's hard to, I can love those I don't know and I can love unselfishly. It is only then, when HIS love saturates me to the very core of who I am, that I can share the wondrous beauty of His Touch in my life.
In John 17: 25,26 Jesus said: "Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them."
May His love fill you in a powerful way--May you reflect the beauty of His touch in your life.
Blessings to each of you~~
