Gratituesday


I am so thankful God has given us the change of seasons. I love the change every so often. It never ceases to amaze me of how wonderful an artist God is. Instead of complaining about the seasons stop and enjoy the beautiful art work done by our Heavenly Father!

Like it says in Revelation 14:7 "Worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea and the fountains of water."


Spring birds in our tree. Everything waking up from the long winter's nap. Song birds joyfully singing, leaves starting to grow. Fresh smells from outdoors.

Leaves in full bloom in the summer. Children laughing playing in the water. Chasing each other with water. Occasionally getting their Father with a bucket of water or the hose.

Changing leaves, beautiful colors of reds, orange, and yellow. Cool crisp mornings, mild temperatures during the day. Pumpkins, squash, apples, all the items God has provided for us.

This is what I saw this morning! Winter has arrived...a month early. But how beautiful it is. I love the snow plow. I love to see the snow on the branches, crisp cold mornings. Being able to snuggle up on the couch with loved ones.

Jen,
You may be a "simple" woman but you are a deep God loving person who helps us to value what's important. Thank you!

Gorgeous pictures. I live in Texas so we have pretty much 2 seasons — HOT and NOT HOT. Not a lot of variety, and very rarely any snow.

I love changes of season too. My husband and I were talking and I said it would really be difficult to live where the leaves do not change.

Blessings

What a great compilation of pictures. I love the changing of seasons too. Winter is probably my least favorite to actually be out in, but definitely my favorite to look at from behind a window in the warmth and coziness of my house.
