Of An Evening

On the way home this evening.







Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway.

Poked

Look through our window. What is that?

Lets go outside and have a look. It doesn't look like much from a distance, but wait till we get closer.


It's a Pokeberry Bush! Or technically speaking, an American Pokeweed Bush. Other names are Red Ink Plant and American Nightshade. I love it's brilliant colors!



You can see that something has already eaten a few berries.


Brilliant colors often mean poison, and this plant is.The berries and roots are very poisonous, but do not seem to bother birds.

The Fear-of-God is a spring of living water so you won’t go off drinking from poisoned wells.

Sunday Sunset

This evening's sunset was beautiful. Here it is in order, watch it with me.


It looks like a messed with the color, but I did not. The color for all of these is just as it came out of the camera.


“As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love to those who fear him. And as far as sunrise is from sunset, he has separated us from our sins.

Psalm 103

The Great Pumpkin

I looked out the kitchen door today, and could hardly believe my eyes. A pumpkin!
 Upon walking over and inspecting closer, our next door neighbor had planted a tiny pumpkin patch! I don't know how we could have missed this, as our door looks out on this and it is only a few yards away.


Wonder what happened to the rest, or if this was the only one? I don't know if I have seen a pumpkin so early. But for all of you suffering from the heat, hope is on the way!

At the close of a long hot summer, the appearance of the pumpkin heralds the welcome arrival of autumn. ~Kari Spencer
