it’s the beauty and simplicity that we often miss the radiance and light that we just don’t see the comfort and the healing that we lay aside oh let us rest let us be still for the greatest of these is love the greatest of these is love it’s the glory and presence that we often ignore a sunrise a bird song a baby’s laughter the colors of all the leaves as they fall grace is always in season oh let us rest let us be still for the greatest of these is love the greatest of these is love it’s the bitterness and anger and rage that can lead us to waste our pain we pursue justice at the expense of our souls and become that which we loath oh let us rest let us be still for the greatest of these is love the greatest of these is love God our world is in trouble but greater still is my troubled soul my anxious thoughts God i need you to settle this restless heart help me to see beauty simplicity your presence your glory right here to laugh like a child and to sing your praise and your renown with the colors and the seasons oh let us rest let us be still for the greatest of these is love the greatest of these is love
A few moments that caught my eye as Fall descends in our area.
stillness reflection quiet contemplation listen He is here presence surrender holy encounter He is here searching heart open hope filled and broken He is here rest now oh my soul let grace fill the questions the doubts have no fear His love is here He is here
My home town is in the state of Illinois. We are considered a southwest suburb of Chicago. The town is all but surrounded by corn and soy bean fields and so it often seems like any kind of major city is far, far away, even though, if the traffic gods are smiling, we can be in beautiful downtown Chicago in about an hour. These Minooka, Midwest skies are treasures that I always enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.
so here we are again another day has dawned lets get it right today and see what we’ve become so here we are again another chance to love to give and not to take to set our hearts on things above dear God we need to hear your voice let all the change i want to see let all the change begin in me dear God please change me
A little front yard beauty! Have a great day!
A beautiful, if stormy, start to the day.
The ‘nook is short for my home town, Minooka, Illinois. We ended Monday night with a rainbow and beautiful sunset – both taken from my front porch. The cactus flower is in the garden in front of our house. The sunrise is just a 2 minute walk from my home. What does the beauty around your home look like?
Street photography, sports photography, and now, I give you, front porch photography.
