There is nothing like getting out in nature to clear away the cobwebs and dust of every day living.  Problems that are left behind are soon forgotten as you traverse through God’s beautiful creation.  I’m beginning to understand why my husband is such an outdoor nut.  Each week we get in the car and find a new destination.  The ride is usually no longer than a couple hours, but it’s enough to rejuvenate and exhilarate the senses. 

Yesterday’s journey took us on a longer trip.  We spent about five hours exploring the final remnants of Autumn.   The skies at this time of year are amazing.  Clouds filter the sun and rays bounce carelessly along the horizon.  Splashes of color still remain.  Fields have been plowed, but a trace of what once was still exists.  A patchwork of green, gold and browns now replace the fields of corn, soybeans and wheat.  The bronze and deep crimson oaks are now in sight and a few brilliant aspens are still hanging on – most leaving a carpet of brilliance below their branches.  The chillier temperatures create tiny shards of crystal, refracting a rainbow of color into the clouds.  It bounces off the water and dances in ripples across the expanse.  When you need to get away from the world and all the chaos and disorder, get in the car and take a drive.

Thank you, Lord, for the seasons – for the beauty of your creation – for the gift of life here and eternal life,  If this world is even a small fraction of a glimpse of eternity – I can’t wait.  Amen!




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  5. Wonderful post! Kathy, I appreciate how you and Paul feed the visual self in each of you. It stimulates the work of any artist or writer. I marvel at the clean-looking soybean fields after harvest contrasted with the ripped and chopped corn stalks.
