God’s been romancing me this week.
Wooing me in pinks and golds and greens and blues.
I drink His beauty, but I can’t get enough.
I take photo after photo from the kitchen window of the blooming tree next to the garage, about 40 feet away (and discover that the big girl camera has captured a bee) and of the other tree just outside the living room window.
I’m overwhelmed with the art in the blossoms and the leaves and the limbs and the sky.
And I’m drunk with the wonder and the glory of it all.
One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
~Psalm 27:4 (NIV)

I’ve been drinking right with you, dear one.
I counted colors until I got tired of counting on my way home today. Soooo many.
And today was that spring day, this year, when I really saw them for the first time.
David. Rupert says
Make that a double!
Drink it all in
Oooh, GORGEOUS. You just keep right on drinkin’, Sandy. And that is NOT something I ever say. :>)

Beautiful, beautiful creation! God is an artist and we are his appreciative audience.

Spring’s colors are only a memory in this part of the south, but how blessed I am to delight in her loveliness outside your kitchen window. What amazing beauty the Lord displays in His creation!

That’s my word for this year–drink! Thanks for the reminder to get outside and get busy doing more of it.
Sheila Seiler Lagrand says
“Drink” as a word for the year.
Why didn’t I think of that?
Wendy Paine Miller says
It is intoxicating in the best of ways!
Geesh! I know what you mean, after that pink explosion you just posted. I feel a million times happier. 🙂
It’s raining here and I was a little grouchy about it. Thanks for shifting my perspective and bringing the sunshine 🙂
Nice to meet you through IP!
How did happy face emoticons get on my comment? did I put those there? I usually don’t emoticon…where’s my coffee?
Brandee Shafer says
Beautiful. (Yay, God!)
I went to our downtown park today and captured the red roses and some kind of flowers that had big purple balls and captured a bee sitting on one of them. I love to drink in his beauty too. Wasn’t that so nice of HIM to give us the gift of flowers and colors?! 😉
Ooooo! So pretty. I don’t know if I can pick a favorite photo here. They’re all so lovely.
Drinking it in with you. It is, as they say, “5 o’clock somewhere.”
