Walking with my husband and two little dogs daily as I do, these last few weeks I have been overcome with the spectacular beauty surrounding me. I find I cannot walk more than 10 paces or so down the little country lane we live on before I’m stopping dead in my tracks again…looking up to heaven…and erupting into spontaneous heartfelt praise to God over His magnificent artistry. It simply takes my breath away.
To me, fall is the crowning glory of all God has put His hand to in nature, where even the sun itself blazes in a hue quite unlike any other season, casting that heavenly golden glow upon everything in its path. Oh, Father, You are awesome! I glorify Your Name!
No surprise fall is my favorite season. I suppose that’s why it is in the fall particularly, when I survey God’s Art Gallery all about me, that I have to scratch my head, contending that one would have to work awfully hard NOT to believe in a Divine Creator.
For the very heavens declare the glory of God!
Day after day, night after night, the heavens speak to us. So says the Word of God. And so it is. God has never, no never at any time, left mankind without at least this one witness: Creation itself. The incontestable witness both to His very existence. And to His great glory.
And that being so…the TRUTH is…there is not one inch of soil on this earth upon which man has walked, where any will ever be able to claim the Creator has NOT clearly spoken, has NOT spectacularly, lovingly, revealed Himself…again and again…through the things He has made.
To God be the glory!
“The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.”
~ Psalm 19:1-4 [ESV]
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
~ Romans 1:18-20 [ESV]

Sooo true…Every leaf cries, Look at me.
I’m beautiful….I believe Fall is showing his Glory…And the Winter represents the Covering…..Blotting out my sins….Praise God, I’m free in him…
Loved your post…
I love your thought, Linda: “Winter represents the covering.” Oh yes! I totally agree! In fact, the minute I read your words, that verse from Isaiah came instantly to mind: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow…” Praise the Lord!
