HIS EYES LIKE A FLAME OF FIRE
Then Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the RULERS of the congregation returned to him; and Moses talked with them. Afterward all the children of Israel came near, and he gave them as commandments all that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. - Exodus 34:31-32 . #thebookofexodus .
Hear the word of the Lord, you RULERS of Sodom; give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah: “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool." - Isaiah 1:10,16-18 .
But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered RULERS over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” - Mark 10:42-45 .
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the RULERS of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. - Ephesians 6:12-13 .
Ever green! 💚✨🌲 I love the way this gorgeous, dark evergreen is standing tall alone, & flanked by attendant golden maple & walnut! As long as I can remember, the image of one of these trees touches some deep spiritual chord with me. I still get shivers looking at one, whether it's decked out in twinkling lights - or twinkling stars! #fallfoliage#evergreen#autumnmood#leafpeeping#autumnglory#myneighborhood
Two of the glorious maple trees on the street behind us. The leaf experts say this will be the last weekend to see peak color in Southern Indiana. I really think we peaked up here a week ago. I shot a bunch of photos on my walk through our neighborhood, just before Halloween, & the colors were unbelievable! So will probably be sharing several of these pics along with current wax posts, since the garden has finally given up in the face of freezing temps.😔🍂🍃🍁🌬❄ #fallfoliage#fallcolors#autumnglory#mapletree#mapleleaf#instatree#myneighborhood
It’s cold out today and all those fading colours are taking over. Planting up smaller London gardens always involves lots of evergreen structure but it’s important to get some plants that are going to ring the seasonal changes. This Hydrangea starts as a lime green goes to cream , then fades to these lovely faded pink colours. ( Hydrangea paniculata ‘ Little Lime’)
. "How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow." - Elsie N. Brady
Autumnal glory at River Cottage HQ this morning. It’s @brazier.lucy here, walking down the sunny track towards a day of baking (and eating). After 12 years on the RC team I still love turning the corner and seeing HQ nestled in the valley. There is a hint of woodsmoke in the air and curious sheep watching our cookery school guests arriving... #autumnmorning#thetrack#cookeryschool
