Fall Colors in Jasper, GA

“Think of the self that God has given as an acorn. It is a marvelous little thing, a perfect shape, perfectly designed for its purpose, perfectly functional. Think of the grand glory of an oak tree. God’s intention when He made the acorn was the oak tree. His intention for us is ‘the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.’ Many deaths must go into our reaching that measure, many letting-goes. When you look at the oak tree, you don’t feel that the loss of the acorn is a very great loss. The more you perceive God’s purpose in your life, the less terrible the losses seem.” Elisabeth Elliot

  1. Claire, these pictures represent all that makes fall so enjoyable. Your camera pinpointed the individual leaf as well as the colorful panorama of the mountain ridges. Great Job!
    Elisabeth Elliot’s quote was the perfect choice to give focus and a deep truth.
