Today I give thanks for the vine growing up the tree in our backyard.  When I looked out our bedroom window this morning I saw beautiful red leaves.
It is just a little thing, but it gave me a happy heart to see them.  I grew up in Ohio where the leaves turn beautiful colors in the fall.  I miss seeing all the colors. The trees in Texas have mostly brown leaves in the fall. So when I saw the brilliant red leaves I thanked God for the beauty he gave me today.
 Keep your eyes open for bits of beauty
that God has give you
that might otherwise go unnoticed.
