502. The morrow was a bright September morn; the earth was beautiful as if newborn; 
there was nameless splendor everywhere, that wild exhilaration in the air… ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Did you hear them? Of maybe see them?! Did you? I didn’t either, but I know autumn fairies played upon the lawn last night; dew from their pixie dust was shining like diamonds upon the grass this morning. They must have worn themselves out in their playfulness, however, and vanished with the dawn because now where once they romped all I see are avian wings crisscrossing the yard.

Fall has come but her red leaf and her gold have not. And so though the year is growing long in the tooth, the sparkle of life’s spark continues to pulse audibly to the beat of Yahweh’s heart. His Eden is still very much alive; spring and summer’s glory have not been vanquished. I know because I can hear it and see it bursting forth in the red of rosy faces, the yellow that sits atop the Maximillian sunflowers, the white that calls out from the Angel’s trumpets, the pink that plays on in phloxy mounds, the blue that paints the sky and the morning glories, the orange that echoes from the echinacea, the purple that mounts the ruella, and the green that continues to flesh out in grass and fern.

Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and joy are in His dwelling place. ~1 Chronicles 16:27   ✝

Thank you, Lord, for the beauty of this amazing day as well as the power and strength that fills this aging, ailing body with enough oomph to praise you and rejoice in another day!

  1. Love the acknowledgement and appreciation of colors here Natalie. Seems like there’s a colors theme going on today here on WordPress. Frederic with his lovely herb garden under moonlight, and I’ve posted one called, “Color me…”
    Hope you had a great weekend.
    🙂

  3. I am so thankful for the colorful description you shared with us. It revived my heart to think of all of those beautiful flowers that magnify the Lord in their own special way. You have such a wonderful way with words.

    Last week I had a close friend over for lunch. My laptop computer was on the kitchen table. I showed her your blog, and she read some of your recent posts while I made tuna salad sandwhiches, and she loved it, especially the things you wrote about fairies!

    Thank you so much for sharing with us.

    Blessings,
    Theresa
