Seeing God in Nature

   I've been taking part in Laura Krokos' "Not About Me" challenge.
Today as I thought about what to post, I thought about Job.
Job probably thought a lot about himself and his terrible circumstances
until God showed up and opened his eyes to the wonders around him.

Today, I just want to look at some of the awesome
handiwork of God that is near me.
If you wish to enlarge a picture,
just click on it!

 God's beauty showing in ivy growing on our oak tree!


Sometimes I just need to remind myself that
I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place!
Taking time to enjoy God's wonderful nature
takes my mind off ME and reminds me
how BIG and how AWESOME God is!
