Welcome to Autumn!

My favorite time of year!

Messages of Autumn

Autumn gives us hints of God's great love

As falling leaves blanket the flowers

And birds are called to warmer climes

To nest in greener bowers - 

God cares!

Autumn tells us of God's fatherhood

In the yellow gold of ripened grain.

In fruit trees heavily laden,

In crops matured by sun and rain - 

God provides!

Watching the Earth put on her Festival colors  for the Fall Season. The warm breezes. The deep blue sky. The cool evenings. The quiet and peaceful solitude that Fall brings and the  splendor of the changing colors. This is the time of year I love the best.  It's like the grand finale of the year before the weather turns cold and ...... well, let's not go there!  I don't like thinking about winter toooooo soon. Blah!


I actually grew my own pumpkins this year. They are small but they will make wonderful Jack O'Lanterns.  I  tried last year and I got 9 teeny, tiny little pumpkins. Cute they were but hard to draw faces on em.  I kept ALL of them in the kitchen window all winter long and they lasted till April. It was just a fun reminder of the change of the seasons and that even though it was mid-winter, I knew Spring would come real soon so I could try again. Look super don't they??  I can see the "faces" on them now. :) 


Autumn brings treasurers of heart and of hand,
God-given gifts for the service of man.
Beautiful color enriches the scene.
Red leaves and gold now jewel the green.
Skies are much bluer- there's a nip in the air.
Geese travel south where winters are fair.
Signs of the harvest appear in the field.
Crops overflow- abountiful yield!
Food for the table, beauty to share,
Autumn's in splendor...God's everywhere!

This Day

This day, I'll walk to some old shady elm,
Beneath its spreading branches I will lie
While scarlet leaves drift down around my head
And fleecy clouds sail in an azure sky.

This day, I'll walk beside a sparkling stream
That winds its way into the quiet wood
Reflecting in its depth a passing cloud--
On grassy banks find peace and quietude.

This day, I'll climb again on yonder hill
To walk through rustling leaves when trees are bare
To hear the sound of wild geese in their flight
When there's a tinge of autumn in the air.

This day, I'll see in all this beauty near
The peace and joy that nature seems to give,
The morning sun will find a thankful heart
That in this glory God will let me live.

Behind the Fall

Somewhere behind the autumn days

The winter travels unknown ways,

Across the fields once lush and green

A little guy - Jack Frost is seen,

He sprinkles white on leaves of gold

At summer's end - so stern and bold.


Behind the fall - October's blend

All nature's beauty God doth lend,

It seems so very short a time

That colors bright are yours and mine,

The harvest stored - the air is chill

With browning grass on yonder hill.


We dream of winter just ahead

While catching leaves of crimson red,

Beneath our feet and all around

So much of beauty doth abound,

And then we hear November's call

As winter comes - behind the fall.
