Beauty

Today for my first Sunday I found Beauty.

Real, breathtaking, let-it-wash-over-me-and-flood-my-senses beauty.


First thing into the canyon I was caught by her oranges, then the smell of the blessed willows rushed over me.



My eyes danced eagerly over the greens, and yellows, and deep reds and even the faded peach.


Beauty all around.

I found myself almost frantic to take all of it into myself -


I wanted to inhale the air so deeply into my mind and soul that I'd never be without it



desperate to take with me the splendor
and peace


and I just wanted to cry for the beauty of it.


My mind was flooded with words

like
God

and Majesty

and Glory

And I was humbled.
I was honored.

And I was so very grateful.

WOw, Wow and Wow again. I think you have Daddy's photography talent. These pictures are so amazing.
Oh....and did I ever tell you that I love Fall? I can't get enough of the colors, the smells, the temperature, the humidity....all of it. I hope Heaven is like Fall.
