The Knobs

I live in the Ohio Valley where I have a view of  a high ridge called "Floyd's Knobs".

It is beautiful in the autumn when the colorful hardwoods are cloaked in mist. And it is a peaceful sight as I walk in the evenings with the sunset glowing behind the treetops.

Something about that ridge, standing on tip-toe, reaching for the clouds, makes me think of one of the songs of David that the people sang going up to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles: .

I look up to the mountains—
does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth
Psalm 121

That part of Indiana is beautiful Karen...we used to ride up there from Kentucky when we lived in Louisville.

I really like that psalm. Your photos of the leaves are wonderful.

Reassuring words. I loved your description of the sunset above the treetops.
