Simply a Sunday Sunset 7 with Colours of my Sky

Come sit with me on my deck with a nice hot spiced wine and enjoy the skies nature painted for me in the month of November .  Normally I never get to see such beautiful skies here.  I think the more then normal cloudy days and mists help contribute to the extra colour this year.

So bundle up as its getting a little chilly on the deck and just imagine that hot spiced wine.

 The sky always carry's my spirit away to far away places. 


 Into the golden glow the light surrounds you.


 A warm feeling always comes within yourself.

  PB080020     PB080025

 You want to fly onto rooftops for a better view.




     Ever changing making each time you look into the sky an new experience.

PB230012    PB230016 

 Sometime the patterns help you to see something new in your spirit.


 Other times it just brings a peace that only natures beauty and God can bring to us.


  When the mist rises to the the skies..
You are drawn to look deeper.


PB280098    PB280103

 In looking deeper nature brings you closer to God.


 When you are close to God you reflect back the beauty that lies within all of us.


Well friends my hot spiced wine is empty
and it is really getting cold out.

May you have a blessed
Good Morning…  Good Afternoon…  Good Night…

After Rain

Nothing is more beautiful then to witness the drops of water  after a rain.   To seek out the diamonds left behind to enrich your lives.  They shine with the delicate balance of the many facets of nature.

does not know when to leave off.

At nature's bosoms...

she is very useful, and humble, and precious, and pure.

One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge,
but one misses a world of loveliness.

Innumerable as the stars of night,
Or stars of morning, dewdrops which the sun
Impearls on every leaf and every flower.

 Let the Rivers Flow
I came where the river ran over stones;
My ears knew an early joy.
And all the waters of all the streams
Sang in my veins that summer day.

Nature tops the list of potent tranquilizers and stress reducers. The mere sound of moving water has been shown to lower blood pressure. - Patch Adams

For many of us, water simply flows from a faucet, and we
think little about it beyond this point of contact.  We have lost
a sense of respect for the wild river, for the complex workings
of a wetland, for the intricate web of life that water supports.

Life is water when it dies so do you
  Saving your water may save your life
God gave us both the beauty and the health giving abilities that only water can hold.
It supports so much. 
Be supportive of good clean natural water.

It was a Blue Day on November 8 2008

Nature showed its beauty in your day of passing.
It gave me a Blue Day.....
The rising blue mist of the spirit of you
slowly running through the valley..
As once you roamed freely..
The soft snow falling down,
floating slowly from the sky above..
Washing my tears of your memory....
Listening to the Stillness..
My heart aches for your presence
As I walk alone unprotected..
But you surround me with the mist..
All around me you swirl..
The evening wears on as darkness descends...
Soon the memories I take are no longer blue.... 
But begin to show only black..
Its time to let you go...
The Night is arriving
as the cycle of life ends....
Sleep my friend
in your Mist of Dreams
where tears drop no more...
But in all things Life moves on and so shall I...
The snow is gone as with the blue colour
but the mist lingers..
In Loving memory of Buster Brown my dog who passed away 2 years ago.

Good Morning…  Good Afternoon… Good Night…

Seeds of Life

From the winds the colors of Autumn are slowing fading away revealing what looks like the end of life.   But from death comes the seeds that will produce something new.  The old life may crumble to the ground, but the seeds of life have been sowed.

So our world may sometimes seem colorless and dead.  But with the right circumstances and that special touch that only nature and God can provide, the seeds we sow will continue to spread.

When we loose someone close to us.  They are not gone for the seeds they planted thru-out their lives will continue to grow and resonate into this world of ours.

Like nature your loving thoughts are like a seeds that you are always planting.  Within every seed is a part of you that  grows and become something beautiful.

Dedicated to those very special people
I know who recently lost a loved one.

Plant your seeds today
and have a
Good Morning…   Good Afternoon…  Good Night…
What ever it is to you…
