Beautiful Constancy

The golden orb is settling down
  for the night.
The tree stands sentinel
  over the valley.
The river down below
  doesn't mind.
It's the way things are.
Praise God for these motions
  that make sense.

Merci a vous deux.

K, the name is a nod to my English heritage. Plus I like to be silly (as if you haven't already guessed that!) The photo overlooks the Mississippi river valley in northern Illinois.

Joanne, you are very welcome. I sometimes feel like events are so out of my control, but God has created this world and maintains it by the power of his word. There is such comfort in that.
