Mississippi Fall Ya’ll ~ Glorious Bradford Pears

I loved how the brilliant colors framed the steeple

For many of you, the fall colors have already come and gone.  Where I live, they finally peaked about a week or two ago.

I have always thought the colors pop out more on overcast days.  Unfortunately, when I had the time to get outside with my camera lately, it was either bright sunlit or rainy.  I have learned that with photography, though, you work with the moments you get,

Bradfords are amazing with the variety of colors

My focus with this set of fall photos was capturing the beauty of Bradford Pear trees.  Their showy variety of colors in the fall is hard to beat.  Many stay green underneath, and then turn a combination of reds, yellows and oranges.  As seen above, they are like a fall foliage display all in one package.

Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.
Job 40:10

On my next post, I will showcase some other Mississippi Fall photos.  I hope that you enjoy sharing in our fall, ya’ll!

Before the Sun Rises ~ I Will Seek You

Up early, before the dawn ~ To see this photo with Scripture added, go to Heavenly Raindrops Images

Up early, before the dawn ~ To see this photo with Scripture added, go to Heavenly Raindrops Images

Before the sun rises
Before awakes the dawn
I will find You
I will join Creation’s song

Before the noise begins
Before life’s clamor rings
I will hear You
I will listen to what Truth brings

Before the demands start
Before busy challenges arise
I will seek You
I will absorb all Love supplies

“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”
Proverbs 8:17

Bank on God’s Faithfulness

Bank on it

Where I live, the Lady Banks roses are in full bloom.  Down South, we simply call it Lady Bank.  Whatever their name, they are splendid.  When grown against a fence, it literally envelops it with beauty!

Lovin' me some Lady Bank!

As my husband and I were on an evening walk the dog trek, I spotted this gorgeous Lady Bank in bloom.  While gazing, the Lord immediately reminded me of His faithfulness.  His promises are a certainty on which we can depend.  He will come through.  We can bank on it!

He who promised is faithful. Bank on it!

Blessings, always.
