Chapter 11, Page 3, Book 18

November’s sky is chill and drear,
November’s leaf is read and sear.

Sir Walter Scott

Today I’m thankful for Nature

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us ever hour, if only we will tune in.

George Washington Carver

November is the time when we think about the abundance that nature provides.  It’s time to celebrate the harvest of our bounty which culminates with Thanksgiving Day.

It’s easy to take for granted all the food we have and the farmers that have the job of growing it for us to enjoy.  Sad, but true, not every enjoys having a good meal on the table every day.

On my thankful list today:

6487. for sandwiches, mmm good
6488. for sunshine, always wonderful
6489. for an extra hour of sleep tonight.  

If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

Vincent Van Gogh

We have natural resources all around us that we fail to appreciate. The one that comes to my mind top and foremost is fresh water.  We cannot live without it. 

 This world and the environment we live in are precious gifts to us and ones we should take care to protect. And never fail to be thankful for.

All the works of Nature are Miracles, and nothing makes them appear otherwise but our familiarity with them.

Samuel Butler

Even though it seems like it's been raining most of the week here, we just have to be thankful for it. Water is a something we need and I'm thankful.

I am thankful you posted a quote of George Washington Carver. I had never read that quote, and wondered as I read how he knew about 'broadcasting'. I thought he passed in the 1800's. I did not know I was alive when he died. He lived until 1943, he was an amazing man. You my friend, are an amazing lady and am sure your children call you 'Blessed.'

I, too, was struck by that wonderful Carver quote. For so long now, I've been guilty of taking all the food I enjoy for granted. Did you watch that sweet video Susan (Swiderski) shared on her post yesterday? What a lesson in perspective!

So true to protect our natural resources, especially water. Like I said before, living in a desert makes one truly appreciate water and the effects of not having it abundantly.
