881. White is not a mere absence of color; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black. ~G. K. Chesterton

The breeze at dawn has
secrets to tell you. Don’t
go back to sleep.


Yahweh’s divine light is woven throughout the entirety of Creation’s multicolored tapestry. Among a host of other things, it can be seen in the soft radiance of a chromatic dawn “unveiling the whole face of nature,” in the blazing streaks of a brilliantly hued sunset at day’s end, in the white glow of the moon illuminating the night, and in an exquisite blossom that mimics the luminous lights of the heavenly orbs. But what does all that have to do with the breeze telling secrets at dawn, one might ask? The answer, my friend, is “blowing in the wind” as always. And it’s really no secret at all, for the breeze knows, as do I, that the Ancient of Days yet walks among us and is still in control of all that He has made.

Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Whose hands have gathered up the wind? Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is the name of his Son? Surely you know! ~Proverbs 30:4 ✝

**This white moonflower only blooms at night, but when I get up early in the morning I can capture its glory before in perishes in the bright light of day.

  1. I believe white signifies purity on goodness, Natalie. Your flower is so pretty.
    The color white can seem clean and fresh. I like fresh white sheets taken off the clothesline. Maybe not soft but so nicely scented naturally.
    I like this Proverbs, Natalie. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed weekend! xo

    • Oh, Robin, that brought back such good memories. I too love white sheets that just came of the clothesline. They weren’t as you said too soft but oh that fabulous scent they had well made up for the lack of softness.
      I’m glad you enjoyed the post and hope you too have a wonderful and blessed weekend, my friend. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤


  2. I love this Natalie. I’m sorry for such a long absence, but this apartment and yarn sorting is getting to me now. I can see the end now though, so progress has definitely been made, and it almost looks like home. I am ready for this adrenalin rush to be over so I can relax and get back to living and breathing again. HUGS, A. (:-)

    • Thanks, Dan, and you are so welcome. I don’t often get up that early since I’ve been retired, but I had an early dental appt. and got ready a bit early. So I went out and made a quick tour of my yard and of course found “food” for my camera’s lens. Have a great weekend. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
