WPC: A gift from Mother Earth

 

In honor of upcoming Earth Day, the WordPress Photo Challenge topic for this week is Earth.

All you have to do is open your eyes or take a deep breath in to appreciate all the gifts that Mother Earth has given us.  With no help from mankind, God uses Mother Earth to send us gifts every day:

  • The fresh smells of roses
  • The bright color of a peacock’s feathers
  • The sound of waves crashing on the beach

We can get no credit for these gifts.  It is God and God alone.

Then, sometimes God gives men the knowledge to create amazing new treasures from Mother Earth.  Paper, medicine, food, and one of favorites…

Wine.

Even if you are not a fan of wine, you have to admit the beauty of the vineyards themselves is gift alone.

Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge- Unique adjectives

I am a teacher.  Adjectives are part of our curriculum.  I always encourage my students to use unique adjectives in their writing to make it more interesting and get their point across.

I give the author of this sign an A+ for creativity.  Because really, what better adjective can you think of for wine?  Point made.  They sold me.  🙂
