A Wonderful Day; A Wonderful World

It is just amazing to see the leaves turning their beautiful colors this early in the fall here in in Mississippi. I remember times when it has been late November before they would turn. I also remember seasons when the leaves did not turn at all. One day they were there and the next the were gone, never having turned a color. So, I considered it quite a gift today when my husband and I headed out for a ride, to not only experience some coolness and crispness in the air, but to see a few of the leaves already turning brilliant colors of gold and red as we traveled along on the interstate. Of course, it was no time and the temperature was already 84 degrees but it was such a beautiful day I felt compelled to share it.

On one of our busiest highways has a car dealership that has wild flowers that bloom every spring and fall. I stopped there the other day and took this picture. When I stopped, a salesman came out, I guess he thought I was there to buy a car...then he saw me taking pictures of the flowers! He looked a little disappointed, ha!


A beautiful lake my husband and I found today...sits behind a major shopping mall. It was truly an awesome find.


If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, well, it must be a duck, right? I took this picture from my car...I'm afraid of animals. They were so cute though.


These are just a few of the beautiful flowers that grow in my garden. No, not really, just kidding. They were growing at Roses department store. I thought they were so pretty and beautiful I had to have a picture. People look at you funny when you take pictures at stores.


Did you know that wherever you go, there you are?

Wonderful day, wonderful world, wonderful God.
