Reflecting on being a pilgrim and feeling inspired by this verse from the Bible "..To God's elect,strangers in the world,.....who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,through the sanctifying work of the Spirit,for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood:...
from 1 Peter,1:1
Of course this is also a journal of sorts,and so often has mundane jottings as well as deeper thoughts!

more beautiful than this..
this past saturday morning,in the early gray, with lots of chores already done,we two set out. we saw:
a late dandelion,
this wall,gray with tints of moss,
multi hued cauliflower,
crates of apples,
pie pumpkins waiting to be turned into pies and cakes and oh,so many things,
and the coffeeshop promised us pumpkin lattes...
We found that the colors and textures of autumn are beautiful,oh so full of beauty.
We remember there is Something more beautiful than this:
"God shines from Zion, the perfection of beauty." Psalm 50:2
Beauty pointing us to that Perfect Beauty,Creator of small beauties. We are glad we know the source.
