eternity



The tiniest of seeds will scatter to the four winds, bury themselves in the cold earth, and await the warmth of spring to climb upward -- autumn reaches for eternity.

How true...beautifully said and illustrated by your photograph. (I'm hoping for less weed seeds!)

Oh, Mary! Garsh, this is beautiful! I am wanting to go out and try "catching" some seeds. Yesterday, on the way to church, I saw that there had been a very heavy frost and the soft sun was just starting to make the seed pods sparkle. I almost yelled, "Stop the car! I'm playing hooky, today!!!" I'm glad that I didn't - church was incredibly uplifting - met God! =] So, now, "please, God! Give me another chance. Please, please, pretty please!!!"

Anyway, LOVELY!

Gorgeous, Mary – and incredible words. It's encouraging to think of spring growth when the November world is looking gray and dull. Have a lovely week! xo – g
