This is what my lawn looks like after the first few frosts of the fall. I love to watch the "maze" patterns that appear beginning with the first one. Each additional frost just adds more details in the patterns. It is really amazing to look at.

There are times that I feel this is what my life is giant, confusing maze but the perfect "constant" in my life is Jesus Christ. He takes every step that I make, He is there when I think that I've hit a dead end, He turns me around and gently guides me back the right way and I never have to walk it alone because He is there with me.

In the little maze games we know the plastic one with the tiny steel ball...there is a "prize" point that you aim that says "I won", "I completed the task" and "I didn't let it defeat me".

Well, my "prize" in the maze that I call life is spending eternity with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ living in my mansion on streets of gold when this "crazy" life is over. It will be worth every wrong turn, every dead long as I win the "prize" when it's all over.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. what a cool lawn. I totally will all be worth it in the end when we are with our savior.

  2. Amen! What a great reminder! Sometimes we get so discouraged by the problems of this world. We forget that this world is not our home. God has something better for us. All we have to do is follow Him. Thank you for that reminder today. Take care my sweet friend! And I love the pics...too cool!

  3. Frost? Did you say frost? LOL It's going to be 88 here today!
