Autumn has been glorious this year. It is hands down my favorite time of year. One afternoon driving up to our home it seemed as though we were in a world of GOLD. So beautiful. So blessed. Many years we have lived where autumn is dismal and grey so I do tend to go on and on about the beauty surrounding us.
Though the gold and rich colors represent a death of sorts, the crisp morning air is full of promise and the anticipation of warm afternoons and evenings ending cozy with soft quilts, reading aloud together and soft kisses for bedtime.
A lot of first’s and beginnings happen. I have always liked how the end of summer and beginning of autumn marked a new year in the Bible. First days of school, the beginning of new Bible studies and children programs. Cool mornings and warm afternoons are cherished. More than one afternoon the light has been worthy of pausing for leisurely enjoyment on the porch. If the “Dad” is willing, we often have a pre-dinner fire in the back yard fire basin. This year we have been surrounded by
Golden Fields, Vines, Leaves and LIGHT.
Hope your days are blessed too.
Peaceful views from our front and side yard and the grape vines in the back.
