Oh what a beautiful morning!


I had to work this past weekend, and although sometimes the weekends are a little quieter than weekdays, I really hate working on Sunday and missing church. When I left Sunday morning, I was wishing it was my weekend off and thinking about what I would be missing in the service that morning. However - when I pulled out onto our road I was greeted with this beautiful sight. I happened to have my camera with me so I stopped to take this picture. Doesn't the beauty of creation just beg for praise to God?

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
Psalm 57:5

It's a beautiful picture! That tree is HUGE! It must be ancient! How many people would it take to wrap their arms around it? No I am not into tree hugging but it looks huge!

I used to love when there was a beautiful sunrise when I was driving to work. It was just the reminder I needed of God's love and presence to start my day off on the right foot.

Beautiful picture!

It looks so tranquil and inviting. Isn't God a gentleman to woo you with that serenity as you left for work?

That is beautiful! We must think alike. I just saw this now - what a coincidence that I posted a picture of peaceful looking tree too. With the fog and light, the mood of this photo is just heart-warming. Things like this are truly gifts. Thanks for sharing, Mari.
