Starved Rock State Park, in Oglesby, IL, is filled with hiking trails, canyons, high cliff views of the Illinois River and, in the Fall, the beauty of all those fallen leaves. My colleagues and I go to this park for our annual hiking trip to celebrate birthdays on our staff. We enjoyed a cool, beautiful day! Thanks for stopping buy.
the beautiful sadness of fall colors singing proudly before cascading to the earth creating a carpet of emerald crimson and lemon to welcome the solace and solitude of winter the humility of each season is the common theme of the songs they sing each season happily surrenders its beauty to the charm and grace of the next and so all creation sings to the Creator let us do the same welcome the constant change that this life brings and be alive to all that must die within us and be willing to surrender to all that must be reborn through confession forgiveness and the grace and mercy of our Lord "Yes, grass withers and flowers fade, but the word of our God endures forever." * and He is light and He is love * Isaiah 40:8
Sorry for the space in between posts…. I have been on…well…. an adventure of sorts. Was hospitalized for one night earlier this week due to difficulty breathing….great difficulty breathing.
