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 -
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 -

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,
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.
