A beautiful morning

Yesterday was a fun day with the main event attending a concert by a well-known gospel singer, Reiko Uehara. She's held a concert in this area four years running and I've been to every one. I get completely caught up in her beautiful voice and the message she brings. Wonderful day!

This morning Choco and I took a long walk and I snapped some pictures along the way. More Japanese scenery. This is a picture about half way through our walk overlooking some of the rice fields and the river that runs through the fields. You can still see a little bit of the water between the rice shoots, but soon this whole area will be only green.

Here and there amongst the rice fields are these little patches of pink clover like flowers. I'm not sure if these are just fields that have been neglected this year or if they have been planted with wildflowers but it is very colorful and pretty.

While most of the scenery is green, I noticed that the wheat field is already turning a golden color. God's beautiful earth is ripe and full .

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord
And whose trust is the Lord
For he will be like a tree planted by the water,
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of drought
Nor cease to yield fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7-8

Tanya - not sure what time in the morning you took your walk but the top photo looks like it was captured in that misty silent peacetime that is early morning before anyone else disturbs the world - lovely!

Wow different seasons. We are just planting our wheat and yours is turning and nearing the end.
