TT: Slow Down

. . . you move too fast,
You’ve got to make the morning last!”

(That’s for you, Linden. 😀 )

Today especially I was noticing all of the colors around me.

The red of our trusty, reliable vehicle.
The orange of my oldest son’s favorite shirt.
The yellow of the lilac bush’s turning leaves.
The green of our lawn, still needing to be mowed.
The turquoise blue of the glacier-fed river.
The bright blue of the wide, clear sky.
And let’s not forget purple!  From the color of my t-shirt to the quilt on my bed, I am surrounded by lovely shades of purple.

We live in a beautiful, colorful world!  I think it brings a smile to our Creator’s heart when we stop to drink in all of the beauty that He has made for our enjoyment.

During September, we are linking our Thankful Thursday posts over at Laurie’s blog.

    I loved this! I used to love the song from Pocahontas — about painting with the colors of the wind or something like that … God has provided us a vivid rich and many-hued tapestry by which to view His majesty!
