~Wishing Everyone a Blessed Sunday~



MORNING SONG


Give me a song, dear God,in the morning,
Give me a song at the break of day,
Give me a song lest the hours grow weary,
Give me the lift of a song on the way.

Days are so long and the burdens so heavy,
Tired are the faces I see passing by;
They seem so hungry, dear God and so helpless,
O how they need some song from on high.

So, if I covet one gift in the morning,
It is the shine of the heavens in my face,
Banishing gloom for the worn and the weary,
Telling the story of infinite grace.
~Author Unknown~

Thank you for the beautiful opening graphic and scripture, Meg. Would that be the red rocks of Sedona, (where Yorkie lives?) They sure are glorious! Have a nice Sunday and I must do some work now. (My colors didn’t suit me for my frame but after trying 3, I gave up.) They all seemed to have some purple in them....LOL!

In my last post I should have said “where yorkie and tiapam live.) And I did see your answer to Pam. It answered my question, too.

October's Party

Author: George Cooper

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly “hands around.”

Actually, the top pic is from New Hampshire, but the Blue Ridge look about the same. Mountains in fall are sooooo pretty...

What a lovely opening Meg! Yes, His LOVE is SO Great! Thank you for posting Psalm 57, today!

Of course the graphic does look a bit familiar....and after living here for 20 years, I am still in awe of the beauty. It is different each day, as the sun and clouds make the rocks appear to change colors. Sometimes they are orange/brown, or tan/yellow, and other times they are brilliant red.

But, no matter the hues, it is always breathtaking.

Oak Creek Canyon (Sedona, AZ) displaying the beautiful colors of Autumn

Sedona is not all desert, cactus, and red rocks.
We have the stunning beauty of God's paintbrush,
no matter where your eyes take you.....

In those wonderous leaves of fall,
