Threatened by a forecast of freezing rain turning to snow, we are actually hosting a magnificent and sunny day fully lighting the multi-faceted palette and texture of fall. Fluttering madly in the autumn breeze and dancing to the tune of the wind chime, the once-emerald leaves of the Aspen clump are becoming more golden by the hour. The burning bushes are flaming as scarlet as they can be and potted flower heads are bowing in reverance to the power of the season as it blows by, sometimes in a whisper, sometimes as a roar.
Psalm 65.9 The Message O, visit the earth – ask her to join the dance! …fill the God-river with living water. Paint the wheatfields golden. Creation was made for this! Drench the plowed fields, soak the dirt clods with rainfall… Set the hills to dancing! dress the canyon walls with live sheep, a drape of flax across the valleys! Let them shout and shout and shout! Oh, let them sing and sing!
I am singing my head off to You, O Lord, and trying to sing as loud as the trees which are clapping their hands and the bushes which are dancing (the twist) for your pleasure. You have made all of creation so holy, so set apart for Your glory. Can I live my life as free, as abandoned?
God and all He has created are glorious!…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: See His glory.
