Back on the Rio Grande this summer, I took this picture on a walk early this morning. I was accompanied by a couple of little river wren’s who thought they needed to make sure I knew where I was going….. As I picked out a rock to set on and view the scene around me, they perched in one of the willows not far from me and proceeded to chirp visit with each other while I just set and observed the on going path of nature.
It’s not a whole lot different than it was last year about this time, hmmm…. Did I expect something different? Well, yes, maybe so……
According to some people, the evening news, certain politicians, some publications, the world is surly going to hell before us. Nothing is good, nothing is right; nothing will ever be the same…… There is so much negativity in our lives today it’s very easy to start believing all the doom and gloom…
How refreshing to be out here in God’s wonderland…. The grasses are still growing, the wild flowers are blooming, the river continues to flow, the breeze is still whispering thru the trees, the rocks are still shinning in the waters, the birds still sing happy tunes, and I am reminded of all the good our earth brings us every day, if we just take the time to notice.
Peace……If you can’t find it where you are, please search for a place where you can get it. It’s not often our lives allow total quiet. I have it here now at this moment, with not another human being in site. No traffic, no media, and no one telling me how bad everything is.
Just my God, His waters, and His beauty, my life touching His and making it all good again and still……. A perfect renewal of faith and blessings and strength. Colors of Peace and sounds of silence......a serene smile in my heart
May it also all be yours…… just close your eyes, pull up a rock and set beside me and rest your soul….
