Today’s post is Part of a 31 Day writing series where I will choose moments from my life and let them be my writing prompt for the day. Click on the button to the left for the complete series.
Today I had a free afternoon so I walked next door to my parents to spend some time with them. It was a gorgeous day so we decided to take a drive to the city park. My father also wanted to stop by the site where my brother is building a new house and the farm to pick something up, so we went that direction first and ended our drive at the park. I took several pictures while we were out and about, so thought I’d share them with you.
It was a beautiful outing, but later in the early evening I became a little stressed and frazzled, so spent some time talking to God. I felt that I needed to be sustained and restored. Sometimes, we let the busy and the interruptions handle us instead of turning them over to God. I often struggle to find the balance between what is needed of me and what I need. Maybe that happens to you as well?
Sitting down to look over the pictures taken earlier in the day helped restore the beauty and during my talk with God I was reminded of these verses from Psalm 51:
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Sustained by grace,

So gorgeous! Your views are simply amazing! I did a photo post yesterday too. Not as pretty, but pretty memories for me since moving away from California recently.
Thanks for stopping by, Susie and for your kind comments. On my way over now to check out your photos.
Beautiful! Makes me want to meander NE for a visit soon.
It was beautiful out today – I think we may have a few days of good color left as some of the trees have not completely turned yet. If you come this way give me a holler and we could meet for lunch, or you could stop by for a visit.
You did a great job. You didn’t give up!
