for the beauty of the earth (this our song, to thee we raise…)

dawn in Tyler Run Park

One of my good friends – a legitimate fan and encourager when it comes to my writing – would be just as happy if I quit including photographs with my posts. I respect his feelings on this, and I appreciate his emphasis on my writing, but I’m going to continue with the images because, to me at least, they can be so wonderfully poetic.

Today’s photograph comes from my early walk with Scout. We cut through the park shortly after dawn, looking back to the east and toward our home to witness this beautiful palette of cool fall morning colors.

My mind immediately went to Romans 1:19-20:

For what can be known about God is plain to all of us, because God has revealed it. Ever since the creation of the world God’s eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things God has made. 

God made this world. And, even though there is so much about creation that I don’t understand, and so many wonders that I have yet to learn, it is abundantly evident that God’s stamp of glory is here for me to discover and to rediscover at every turn.

It’s that kind of revelation, on this cool North Carolina fall day, that’s always good news and warm encouragement for another Monday, and the beginnings of a new week where we can live the Life-Charged Life.
