Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

in search of color

It can be easy to let schedules and demands of day-to-day living cause you to miss the beauty of Autumn.

You do not have to look far to see the creativity of our God.  It shows up in all the various changing colors not to mention the different shapes leaves come in.

Isaiah 55:12
“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

The weather is changing.

Each year we try to squeeze in a trip for the sole purpose of seeing the beautiful changing colors of Autumn.  Sometimes, if we wait too long, we miss our opportunity to see the changing colors.   A strong wind or a heavy rain can  quickly cause a tree to lose all its leaves.

Picture perfect weather along with warm temperatures made for a fantastic day to enjoy the beauty of nature.  One of the things I love most about the motorcycle is that it is an opportunity to disengage from the hectic schedules and spend one on one time with my best friend.  This year there has just not been enough of that.  Funny how we can let the demands of life crowd out doing things just for the  joy of doing them.

Nothing  quite compares to going over a grated bridge – the tires sort of vibrate and the water is rushing below you.  It is quite the experience.  This bridge crosses over into Illinois.

Since that day the temperature has dropped and at least for now there will be no cycle riding for me.

I do hope for at least one more warm up before snow.

Meanwhile Autumn is right in my backyard and inside my house!  I love decorating with fall colors.

Nature is alive with beauty.  If you haven’t taken time to notice it , I hope that you set aside some time to do just that.

til next time
