I had plenty of time to reflect while on a train trip and also to observe natures artwork of reflections in the water..
Cormorants are reflecting too.. At the Daily Post, the topic for the week is Reflecting.
O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my laying down,
And are acquainted with all of my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether..
I want to begin my morning with this update from Pat’s husband. As some of you may recall I shared the link to her blog, Bailey Road. Her husband had requested prayer for his wife, Pat. I want to thank you on her behalf, for those that kept her in your hearts, and prayed for her recovery. Good news today, her condition has changed and improved, although their dog, Chloe is stilling missing. But we know that all things are possible with God. Please pray for her continued recovery and for Chloe’s safety and return. If you want to read the update please click on the link.. xx
Just as the Seasons change, so do the Seasons of our lives. Autumn is a beautiful time of the year and a time for self reflection and exploration of my heart. I want to be flexible and acknowledge what needs to be changed. Not to remain stagnant or stuck, but free and healthy in my thought life. I am linking to the Weekly Photo Challenge of Change.
We got out yesterday to do some more exploring. Mr. G. is feeling a bit perkier after three shoulder surgeries and being somewhat confined in his activities. The challenge for this week is Beneath Your Feet, or however you choose to interpret. We discovered an area not far from where we live, called Cascadia, where the So. Santiam River flows. We hiked to the Soda Creek waterfall. The water level was low but it still made for good photo opportunities.
