Ahhhhh....the Ozarks!


There is something magical about the sights and smells of a warm autumn day.

I'm not planning anything soon, but doesn't this look like a beautiful place to be laid to rest?

I knew when I started snapping these pictures that my camera would fail to capture the glory I was seeing...but I had to keep trying.

 We had such a dry, I mean desperately dry summer, that I had given up hope for a colorful fall.
  Boy was I wrong!

Isn't this lane inviting you to come for a walk?

What a great gift to see these lovely sights as we drove home from a long weekend retreat!
The beauty all around us was breathtaking! It was hard to leave the hills and head back home. We did notice that our trees have not begun to turn yet...hoping they won't be long!

Hope you're enjoying a bit of this beauty in your neck of the woods...
It will be gone quick as a wink!
Words fail me.
The beauty of God's creation does that to me!
Happy Autumn day friends!

Flowers for Kellie

Since tomorrow is Kellie's birthday,

I thought I would send her some flowers.

Before old Jack Frost comes nipping around.

Ahhhhh October. I love her for so many reasons.

My flowers love her too.

They have survived yet another Kansas summer,

and want to celebrate!

They will not go into winter quietly.

They are shouting and singing right now,

Full of life and color and gladness!

Let's go for a walk!

Did you see that goose honking at me the whole time I was out taking pictures and the minute I turned the camera on him, he flew away!



It's possibly the most beautiful day the Lord ever made.  The kind of days October is famous for.

I love how the flowers just seem to be putting forth every ounce of their being into being beautiful for as long as they possibly can.  The colors are brighter and the blooms are just exploding all over the garden.  Bees are buzzing and butterflies are drifting from bloom to bloom, crickets are singing and the sky is as blue as blue can be. 

It's good to be alive!

Thanking God for you Kellie and all of the ways you bless me!

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
