Queen Elizabeth I, likeness captured in stone and bronze and placed in this garden*. She stands in serene stillness, never changing in gaze, overseeing the trees and flowers. It may be just me, but statues can sometimes freak me out. 🙂 Beautiful yes, but sometimes I just keep expecting them to move or change position, yet they stay and stay and stay. And yes, I also realize that I am personifying inanimate objects again….don’t judge me. heehee 😉 Have a peaceful and joyful weekend. Slainte, Lisa
*Elizabeth Garden, Manteo, NC
What is it about a tree that makes us feel so protected and sheltered? Standing next to a tree, even when I was a little girl, I feel better. I love to lean up against the strong trunks and gaze up into the lofty green leaves with sunlight diffusing through them.
So today, with Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, I want to thank God the amazing Creator for all the beauty He made….trees, leaves, oceans, skies of all varieties, the wind on my face. I am thankful for all of this and more, because when I see and feel these things, it feels like He’s right here, always. Blessings, Lisa
