Fall in the TX Hill Country...

Along the road from the Cody Center and Tennis Courts at Laity Lodge...
Japanese Maple at Laity Lodge
It's not just the northeast that has beautiful foliage in the fall.  The hill country of TX waits until Thanksgiving time to display its  glorious panoramas.  I have taken  photos of what we have in our hills right now.  I share these with you so you may see the way we experience God's creation each fall.

 Psalm 19: 1-4
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
Along the drive approaching Laity Lodge...
Romans 1:20
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - 
his eternal power and divine nature - 
have been clearly seen, 
being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse.

What joy is felt as I ponder the proclamation of God's hands through his handiwork that surrounds me - especially at this magnificent time of the year.  This is the "voice not heard" of a loving God who desires that all creation recognize and embrace his truth - revealed through what He has made.
We are "without excuse" - He has been revealing himself  
"since the creation of the world".
Along the road past the Hovde Houses...
