Foggy Morning

"First things first...We are truly blessed to have the means to set a pretty table and invite our friends to join us for good food and fellowship. I am mindful that many are not so fortunate. My daughter has a passion for the work of the Food Bank. As a singer-songwriter, she has written and recorded a song that is the anthem for the world wide Crop Hunger Walk project. Her song, "Raise Your Voice" is featured in their video. I've included a link in the side margin of my blog. During this beautiful season when we celebrate harvest and Thanksgiving, I hope that it will encourage you to support projects in your community that contribute to the effort to overcome hunger.

I've been enchanted by fog for many years.  Perhaps it's my degree in English and the role that fog played in many a volume of English literature.  Can you just picture Heathcliff roaming the moors in search of Cathy?  Fog also takes me back to the year that I summered in Nantucket as a college student.  I loved to sit on the beach as the fog rolled in across the magnificent, rugged beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. As that marvelous gray soup closed around me, I felt as if I knew what it must be like to sit in the middle of a cloud.  So, on the rare occasions that we experience fog here on the prairie, I love to stand outside and feel the droplets of moisture kiss my face.  We had a lovely fog just the other morning, and I was blessed to capture a few pictures of my front and back yard clothed in a gentle gray mist.

 

Ephesians 5:20  "...always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

When I think of Fall, I think of the changing weather as the earth prepares for winter sleep as it waits for another Spring.  How about you?  With thankfulness for her dedication and efforts, I'm joining the multi-talented Tablescaper for her fabulous meme SEASONAL SUNDAY.  Hope to see you there!

Beautiful photos. I think fog is very interesting, unless we are in the car. I have been terrified a few times while on the road. I love fall...I'm just not crazy about winter:)

My memories of Oklahoma City all seem to be sunny ones - I don't recall fog in the year that we were there. Your shots are lovely, with that wonderful mystery that fog imparts to a landscape. We are often in the midst of the mist that can be seen from the city when people look up toward the wooded hills. I love it too - perhaps it's the transplanted Maritimer in me!
Such a gentle post!
