wide awake


To us also, through every star, through every blade of grass, is not God made visible if we will open our minds and our eyes.  —Thomas Carlyle

Hi Leslie,
You have sent a beautiful postcard. Your blog is lovely-so full of nature. I particularly love the robin picture and quote.
Thank you for your visit. I did not make the twig lights-I bought them at my school from the bookseller.

I forgot who said this:
"Earth is crammed with heaven and every common bush afire with God."
Your post brought it to mind.
Lovely.

I love how you were able to highlight that one frond yet not diminish the others--great artistry in this photo.
Am concerned about the wide awake title--that can mean more than the quote. I hope you are feeling better and are able to get sleep.
Praying.

Eyes open... awake... what a gift to see, to know... :o) Happy Day, Leslie ((HUGS))

This is such a lovely image and yes I agree with that sentiment, if we start noticing we see that great uniting source in all of nature.

Thank you,

Hi Leslie, Thanks for coming to my blog. Come back anytime. I am enjoying yours. My hubby and I raise lots of flowers --especially roses. BUT--I have never seen a candy-stripped Geranium before.. That is fabulous.... I need to look for that one... Thanks!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy
