Rainy beauty

I headed out to drizzle and came home in rain. 

Red on red

 As we walked, I stuffed my pockets with beauty.


Sunday, I watched one-year-old Kinsey pick up fallen leaves
until her hands were full.


On the road to adulthood, it seems we forget to look around


to treasure the simple pleasures of God's abundance.


Even the leaves were dancing this morning.

Moss tray

Now my office moss tray is bursting with color.

Granddaughter Kinsey stops picking things up when her hands are full.
Her Oma stops collecting when her coat pocket won't zip shut.


**Oh God, thank you for beauty in the rain.**
