Saturday

Bending

Bend when you must. Pull when you must. Both are an offering. When you bend, be at peace; when you pull, do so gently.

Hi Kerri
I hope this will not offend.

I am not a religious man at all, but I know what you mean by being struck by sudden unexpected beauty and amazement from nature.. it happens to me a lot. My thoughts turn to the wonder of it all.. it puts me at peace with myself and others. I can get as much joy from a blade of grass as a butterfly at times. If I feel a bit down hearted a walk in a woods will lift me more than any medication or drug, the smell of the wet earth can change my mood as much as the sight of a sunset full of colour. Beauty is certainly all around.... sometimes looking is not enough though.. it's seeing, feeling, smelling and touching that matters.
I believe in goodness and beauty and being at peace with one self and others. My god is my surroundings and the beauty there in.

All the best for this weekend and I look forward to sharing many more posts with each other.. may your god be with you. :O)

Beautiful song and my favorite ever of your pictures! Soon our brown leaves and dried plants that we love so much will be gone. Then we can enjoy the spring flowers and green grass again. God is definately in charge of all things.

June said...

Hadn't heard that song before, but love its message. The Holy Spirit is all around us if we let ourselves see it. Hope you're feeling better...

a wonderful picture together with wonderful words

Dick said...

Hi

I think Tom said all the words needed. I think the same, I'm also not religious but it doesn't make good or bad different, religious or not. Your picture is so beautiful.

nwscrapmom said...

What a pretty picture... and I love the words to that song.

Heidi said...

This is an awesome photo, Kerri! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day, too!

Andrea said...

Beautiful picture. Peaceful.

Beautiful words to the song. I have not heard it yet but will be looking for it as soon as I finish this comment so I can hear the beautiful words sung.

Nature.....some say it is just nature, some say it is of God. A tree does not have a brain. It does not know when to bud out to make leaves in the spring nor does it know to shed it's leaves in the fall. It is always right on time with the seasons. God controls that tree as He controls our lives. Yes, I believe in God. He is my Lord and Saviour. I could not make it without His guidance and His power in my life.

My prayers are you feel better soon.

granmal said...

I've never heard the song, but it is true. God is there, just waiting for us to see Him. I hope you continue to feel His presence this week.
God Bless!

It is these little wonders that makes us rethink things when we are feeling a bit down; gentle reminders. Thanks!

Love the picture and the words. God is very real to me and he walks with me every day. I see His Hand everywhere.
Hope you are feeling back to normal soon. I'm not quite there yet, but I'm working on it. :-)

bluemountainmama said...

beautiful photo.... and good song. God shows up in the mundane, the ordinary, the natural world, and the extraordinary. there is a caedmon's call song i love that says:

"they say you live in hospitals and trenches, and towers in the sky... and i'm not dying or fighting any wars, except on the inside..... the words i find impossible to mention are written on a star......they say that i can find you in a flower, but i need you in the car."

Willard said...

Hi Kerri,

Wonderful photo, they just get better all of the time! Keep up the good work!

Randi said...
