Psalms 42v1


Psalms 42:1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

Autumn Quotes

I enjoy autumn quotes and I share some with you.

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Heavens Gold on Earth



This beautiful photo is used with permission of,  and was captured by Larry J. Martin in Montana. USA.

I never knew where I would find one extra special one for Autumn until I saw this amazing photo and asked to share with you all here. I am told this is a trout stream that’s  flowing through the area . Thankyou Larry.

Words escape me to add to this post, its so filled with the glorious  golden colours of Autumn . We can get a taste of the glory of Heavens Gold on Earth  when we see these amazing sights.

It’s best to stand alone, besides to add a tiny verse here that I had written many years ago – one time in Autumn.

We only  have just a tiny view of  Heavens Gold on Earth when we see these beautiful colors that  have been set here for us to enjoy at each autumn time.

Here is one such line I received one time, after asking  for a poem.

The Windmill


There are many places here in Australia that have water underground and it is brought to the surface by digging a well to reach down to where the bed rock is that carries the water, then from there it is pumped upwards into water tanks to hold it .

Water has for many uses, one being for drinking water for the household.
