Here I am sick with what started as a head cold that has now traveled down to my throat and my chest – so I’m coughing away, ugh! I praise God once again for hot Chamomile tea and wonderful raw organic honey from a local beekeeper.
But as I look out my window on this amazing October day, all my woes seem to disappear. My Hon- is playing beautiful music on the piano and my eyes are quickly mesmerized by the golden strands of decorative wheat and the sight of my beautiful maple tree in all its brilliant autumn colors.
It is so quietly nestled among the other maples with a glorious two acres of bright green, rolling grass and the towering hedge of protective evergreens round about. They are all so green due to the wonderful rains that have recently begun. It’s this beautiful sight that makes the Pacific Northwest a desired place to live. I love it when God waters our land for us – it doesn’t cost a penny. It reminds me of the verse that says,
“…It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.
I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.”
I’m so excited to show you my new creation! As autumn has crept up on us – and God has been slowly changing the colors of the leaves to brilliant golds, burnt oranges, and beautiful, deep, dark reds… He has also been doing a little brilliant work through my fingertips!
I have never written a quote of my own before, so I thought I’d give it a try. Do you like it? It makes me laugh. My oldest daughter said it was “sketch” – still, I’m kind of proud. 🙂 If you like it and you want to share my quote, I don’t mind – just be sure to put “Constance of Olalla” under it 🙂 Thank you!
