Finding Providence On A Gray Day

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Watercolors 113020a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The distant thunder of the CSX line on the opposite side of the river echoes throughout the Kanawha Valley. The pristine white snow has given way to the typical cold rain of late Fall. Officially, Winter is not for another two weeks and yet the damp chill of the oncoming season already grips my bones. “It’s only a small thing that’s common to all of mankind” I tell myself as I search for the wonderment of creation that certainly exists in this place. Then I spotted the bright leaves of a sweet gum seedling. The bold colors stand out against a gray climate in total defiance of the melancholy weather. The cheer of the eyes brings enough joy to the heart that the warmth of a touched soul drives out the previous chill. It seems that the Good Lord himself has saw it fit to paint a warm flame into nature’s canvas. The valiant sprout burns with vibrant life in spite of the long nights and cold days. The gentle flame from God’s palette was enough to return hope to day and remind me that brighter days are returning soon. For the new light is born on the first day of winter and sorrow is always delivered with hope. It really just depends on what you choose to focus on.

Stay positive when things look dark and trust in providence.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
