Photo Prayer 2021-46 -- Creekside Detour

I thank God that checks needed to be signed for my village or I would not have found myself walking near the creek. How could I forget how much I love to stroll alongside it? Here the water is in no hurry to reach the sea and, with those checks signed, I was in no hurry to get home. I let myself amble. “Look at me!” cried the deep blue of the reflected sky. “Look at me!” shouted the fallen yellow leaves. My eyes could barely keep pace with their demands, yet there was no sense of urgency or anxiety, only pleasure as I stepped over roots and, here and there, left the path to peer over the bank. I will go back, I will. Having been, I will again. My computer screen won’t miss me.

Impressionist tones reveal a floating sky of forest primevals. The colors captivate and yes, I could look at this forever.

And the people all said "Amen, Amen!" God's limitless, inimitable paint brush to thrill and delight us. Wonderful picture and reminder. Thank you, Danny!

What a wonderful line - “the water is in no hurry to reach the sea”. I want to be that water – so much ahead but content to sit here and now. If you don’t mind, that may wander into a song somewhere down the road :)

Danny, Thank you much for your photos and prayers, they help me. We are heading off for our trek at Brandywine Creek State Park to walk the ridge trail at Thompson’s Bridge. By the creek and a few hundred feet above the frenetic activity all around us , for a few minutes anyway. Take care and hope to see you at the dinner.

A+++ for beauty and reminders to stop the other stuff for awhile and return to or find anew a soul-satisfying view. Thank you!

Oh how you have captured beauty and reminded me that it is so important to take time to enjoy nature. Each day unfolds with different beauty if we take time to look.

Just lovely.


So perfect in loveliness and the reminder to take thee outside of the ordinary and routine and dismal everyday at least for a brief encounter with what is all around us!

Love it!
