oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

God’s Brushstrokes

This is a view from my front door. What I see is magnificent color, with clouds that look as though they were painted on the sky. What I think of is an evening after the storm, comfortable solitude, quiet, and an awe at what wonders there can be.



and the heaven of heavens

belong to the LORD your God,

the earth

with all that is in it.

– Deuteronomy 10:14

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I would love to have that view from my front door. We had a huge thunderstorm the other morning, and I loved listening to the rain and thunder from the warmth of my bed–especially after the summer we just had. I just love fall.

    • It is a good view! I have lived here almost 15 years and I’m now contemplating a move. I could stay in this house until the end, but I am a renter and I need to get a move on. I’m certainly not getting any younger or richer, so I need to do something for the future. But this week has been super hard, thinking about leaving the country, leaving my trees and my view.

      Choices!! Sometimes it’s so hard to make a choice that you know is the right thing. You don’t want to do it, but you know it is the right thing.
