Imagine having the whole WORLD to paint!

When I was growing up and going to boarding school in Africa one of our teachers organized a play. We did "Down By The Creekbank" and it was so much fun! The story was about a group of kids who spend a summer day down by the creek bank and the lessons they learn about God. I still remember most of the songs we had to memorize and one in particular comes back to me once in a while. I don't remember the name of the song but this is what I remember of it...

"God paints the world with love
that's how we know He cares.
He filled the earth with colors
and in that way He gives such happiness.
Oh, how we're blessed to have this picture of
a wonderful God who cares so much
that He paints the world with love!"

Just look at all the colors He's blessed us with!

I want to share some of God's love with you today...

Autumn Pinks

Autumn Greens

Autumn Reds

Autumn Blues
Autumn Oranges
How has God shown His love to you today?

So beautiful! It's so funny that sometimes, we search and search for evidence of God's love, when it's all around us, in clear view, all the time!

Drop a pebble in the water, watch the circles grow, that's the way when we love each other everyone will know

Your pictures are so beautiful and I love the title "Autumn Oranges." Thank you for leaving me a comment about the Pioneer Women's coobook. I did see it this morning and was SO thrilled! I never win contests. When I saw the name "Missy" listed as winners I didn't think it would be me. Thanks again!
