Golden Glory

Moments before this photograph was taken, our skies were dark and turbulent. The remnants of what was Hurricane Zeta were exiting to the east. Then, in a blinding second of golden glory, the sun illuminated the trees. God is His excellent wisdom left the black clouds behind the mountains for dramatic effect.

What was dark became light.

The ash tree, which sadly is dying and must be removed soon, looked amazingly vibrant.

Golden light bathed all in its path, and all was breathtakingly beautiful.

This is what Christ does. He makes all things new. He turns darkness into light. He can make what is dying in you come to life in a beautiful way. In a blinding second of golden glory. Love, Lisa

A Rose in Autumn

Autumn-Rose.jpg

Standing as tall as she can

She stretches her neck towards the sun

Petals showing their age but still retaining color of blushes

Lightly lined and becoming dry

She is happy to be there, in the garden, in the sun, in the green

Feeling the touch of the wind and the rain on her skin

Still alive and lovely and glad to be
