Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

The Last of The Year


While walking this afternoon, I saw this guy just flowering his head off. All the other Icelandic poppies were gone for the year. Why was this one left? To point out God's beauty? To create a moment of colour in a very drab garden? To point out how frail, yet how enduring life is? Remind me to ask, when I meet Him.

Brother Ian, Flowers always remind me of this Bible verse:

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”

What an creative artist our God is! Great photo and even greater reminder that God's hanidwork directs our attention to Him! Thanks brother for sharing.

Thanks for visiting my blog. This year our fall colors weren't as pretty as yours, we've had such a drought the leaves have fallen off the trees before the color change. But it is finally cooler and we have been enjoying the evenings, sitting on the swing.

Absolutely spectacular! I believe the flower was there for you and you alone to see and enjoy. :)
