Autumn

Autumn

There’s a crispness in the air that greets the morning sun, a feeling of anticipation, a new day has begun. Harvest days are ending, winter is drawing near, yet in between is surely the most special time of year. They call it Indian Summer, and it seems to fit the bill, for it’s as if the Lord took a feathered brush and painted all the hills.

Now as I sit contented, atop of one of these, a book in hand to pass the time, the sound of a gentle breeze, I can almost imagine an Indian child upon this mountaintop, looking down at the land of her forefathers, lost within her thoughts for in every persons lifetime some heartache may occur, but on these hills in quiet solitude, God helps us to endure. So I say that the eyes are a window, beauty is found within the soul, and upon the hills of Autumn, that are strewn with red and gold.

Of all the seasons Autumn has to be my favorite. As I watch the foliage change it is as though our Heavenly Father took a paint brush and painted all the hills and valleys in wondrous colors galore. As I breath in the crisp morning air and look into the clear deep blue sky I stand in awe of the glorious colors of Autumn against it’s Heavenly hue.

What a wonderful time to be in the wonder of color the Father has provided for our enjoyment. A special time to walk the hills and valleys while talking with our Heavenly Father, drawing ever closer to Him as we commune with Him and meditate upon His Word. 

Psalm 104:24 O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

Psalm 104:30-34 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke. I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.

Yes, I will be glad in the Lord for He is my joy and peace!! 

Have a blessed season my friends. ~Jeanette
