Ravished, Raptured, Dazzled...

Another stunner!!

How much more wonder we are lavished with
than we ever deserve!
Thank-you, Lord!

After taking these photos I took the truck to the mechanic just up the road
and walked a long, loveliest way home!

Ravished and raptured by sun up and down 
Lavished with laughter at nature’s renown 
Wonderstruck by weightless shadows, blue-bent 
Dazzled by diamonds that don’t cost a cent 
Wooed by a woodland begging to be trekked 
Stunned by its branches and bloom-hulls, star-flecked 
Awed by God’s goodness that reckons no bounds 
Resolute mercy beckons and confounds 
Ravishing, rapturing, lavishing oh 
Dazzling and wooing and stunning us so

I had just returned home, brewed a fresh pot of coffee
when the door was flung open
and 'what to my wondering eyes should appear
but my darling daughter and two grandchildren dear!'

With camera still in hand I said wait and let me get a picture,
because, in spite of all the beauty I've seen so far today,
this tops it all!
Needless to say, my heart over-floweth with wonder and gratitude!

Psalm 24:1
The earth is the LORD's, and the fullness thereof, 
the world and all who dwell therein.
