One Thousand Gifts

These are some of the priceless gifts the Father so graciously gives as I ride my bike:


My riding partner getting the bikes loaded up.



The little park where we park and begin our ride.


Ready to go! The weather has finally cooled off and it is a perfect day for a ride.

Our little Post Office.


The beginning of the ride - and my usual view of my husband :-). He very kindly doubles back occassionally so that he doesn't get too far ahead.


Beautiful horses peacefully gracing as we make the turn to the next little country road.



My favorite little driveway. I don't know where it leads, but it is so enchanting.


One of the many ranches we pass.


A little road that leads to an old cemetary.


Sweet cows totally unfazed at having their picture taken.

The ranch where there is a rodeo every saturday night.






Another ranch just at the next turn.

A horse ranch (excuse my finger in the picture, sigh....) with magnificent horses.



Rolls of hay scattered across the field - looking like giant spools of thread.


A flower garden planted by the hand of God. The sunflowers stretch as far as the eye can see. Gorgeous!




My "girl friends". I give them a shout out every time I ride by. As you can see, they aren't impressed.


Thank You Father for the abundant blessings You pour into my life.

I've decided to stop numbering the gifts. I don't think the Father is keeping count; His blessings are numberless.

Blessings,

Your pictures are beautiful and for these weary eyes, it's a relief not to see a single downed tree or missing roof!

How beautiful Linda! I just love your pictures and the simple beauty you captured. Makes me wish I was right there with you! Thank you also for your sweet comment on my blog ~ it is so nice to catch up on my blog reading, and to come and see what you have been up to. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts as well...we are grateful.

Many blessings, Alycia

I've been thinking about this post for days... you invited us along and now I think of you both out on your route--what a BEAUTIFUL part of the world you live in.

I'm praying for you...

All my love,
Ann
