Autumn Blessings

PSALM  5:12 -  You bless righteous people,  O Lord.  Like a large shield,  you surround them with your favor.  -   Wishing everyone a blessed day and a Happy Autumn everyone!

'I found loveliness today, down along life's broad highway-
Saw its beauty in the trees, heard it whisper in the breeze...
Beauty within pastures green, next in clouds of silvery sheen,
Golden glow at break of day, joy in children at their play,
Scented odor of wild rose; peace I found where violet grows-
All along life's broad highway, I found loveliness today.

    I hope that as you enjoy today's gorgeous weather, that you recognize the One it came from.  No,  it didn't just happen by accident.  We are surrounded by God's love thru all the created things around us.
Psalm 27;4  ''One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.''  We often say on beautiful days like this, 'I wish it could be like this all the time.'  Well the truth of it is, that it can be.  You can see God's beauty shining through in different ways every day of the year.  Take the negative blinders off your eyes and see the countless blessings of God's love.  Dwell in it, Gaze on it, Seek Him in it, and Thank Him for it all.
