Blue Clear Sky

After a long hot summer, the crisp, cool, clear air of autumn is most welcome here in the Ozarks.  It was a day that I actually didn't mind that fact that there was not a cloud in the sky.  This week-end promises to be more of the same. 
For the inspirational song this week, I am going to return to one of my favorite contemporary Christian artists, Jeremy Camp.  The song reminds me of something that I fail to do on a regular basis.  When I get up in the morning, I often fail to begin my day by spending time with my Savior.  I get up, shower, dress, have a little breakfast and head to work.  I fail to invite the creator of the universe to come along and guide me through my day.  Many people rely on various things to guide them through life.  Many people spend time analyzing the stock market and social trends to help them make the correct decisions regarding their daily lives. Some rely on horoscopes, others seek the wisdom to "life coaches".  Give all of the self-help books, Oprah's, Dr. Ruth's , and other experts telling us what we should be doing to experience the "good life", it is little wonder that many people are confused and frustrated.  I just need to remember, "In the morning, when I rise, Give Me Jesus."  The rest of my day will go well for me.  Have a blessed week-end.

 I just wanted to see what this looked like in Sepia.  A blogging friend does a regular post called Sepia Scenes and I really like the effect.


  1. I'm really loving our blue skies here also. Fall is northeast Oklahoma's best season.

    Great sepia.

  2. What a lovely post--such a good thought and the right way to live life. Beautiful blue sky, and I love the steeple. Great header shot too! I'm a Kansas Jayhawk but I always root for the Big 12 schools. Mickie :)

  3. Very nice photo.
    I like both versions.

    Regards and best wishes
