The beauty of Spirit

red bike and burning bush

Out on the job, I rode my bike. Had to stop and take a picture of the fall leaves.

The colors captures the eye, the heart, and the spirit.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “Instinct is better than misguided reason, even as nature declares. The violet lifts her blue eye to greet the early spring. The leaves clap their hands as nature’s lively worshippers. The snowbird sings and soars amid the wind gusts. Birds do not catch a cold from wet feet; securing a summer residence with ease. Earth’s atmosphere is kinder than the atmosphere of human mind—kinder than the milieu crowded with thoughts of flu, colds, and allergies.”

“The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Rev. 22:2
