On the advice of a Dove Candy wrapper (sea salt caramel & dark chocolate), I got lost on purpose….
Swallows dance above Crabapple Lake. Even though it is an overcast day, I can still see their shadow on the surface of the lake as they swoop within an inch of the water.
The wind pushes northward and along with it, a single cottonwood seed, floating in slow motion above my head.
The crabapple trees look thin. One looks as if it has changed prematurely, a brilliant red for autumn. But on closer inspection, half the tree has lost all it’s leaves and the only thing that remain are the brilliant little crabapples dangling in clusters.
The mighty oaks across the lake stand firm. Strong, thick, and firm.
How does one strengthen their faith as strong as the mighty oaks on Crabapple Lake?
By denouncing emotions and relying on the Word instead….
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You. Isaiah 26:3
The brilliant red crabapple tree
Here’s wishing you many happy adventures when we get lost on purpose.
I need to buy some more Dove chocolates, apparently! I always liked their little messages, and had forgotten about them. I haven’t had anything I didn’t like with salted caramel! Enjoyed all your photos and the reminder from Isaiah.
Ha ha….They’re yummy aren’t they?!? Thank you for your sweet words.
I really enjoy your sketches and encouraging words you share.
Thank you, Danine, you’re very kind.
Celeste and I need no purpose to get us lost – it comes by us naturally
This is beautiful, the writing and the pictures! Merry Christmas, I look forward to following your blog:)
What a nice Christmas present, especially during this COVID-19, gives me something to look forward to painting.
