A Beautiful Day in My Neighborhood

Spring flowers blooming and sidewalk chalk art

Neighbor

And I had a

Delightful walk today

Inspite of all the troubling news

We saw

Colorful flowers blooming and

Cheerful sidewalk art

On display in the

Sunshine

Butterfly Cinquain

After the fall rain

Bits of joy

Scattered around

I love taking pictures of oil slicks in parking lots after a rain. They are always so unique and beautiful.

And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.  Genesis 9:12-16 KJV
