Fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp cool weather and the amazing colors of the changing leaves. The smell of cinnamon, everything apple from cider to apple pies, raking leaves, the squash crop, and everything pumpkin all contribute to my delight in Autumn!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Today was trash day. I took an early morning stroll outside to roll the trash can to the street. Oh my, what a view! Fall in all it’s glory! I quickly ran back inside to take these pictures for you!
Somehow, the time was right, and the two mighty oaks decided to let go of almost all of their leaves last night. What a beautiful golden carpet that created! I love it!
Daniel 4:12a Its leaves were beautiful.
1 Kings 13:13-15 So he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And when they had saddled the donkey for him, he mounted it and rode after the man of God. He found him sitting under an oak tree and asked, “Are you the man of God who came from Judah?” “I am,” he replied. So the prophet said to him, “Come home with me and eat.”
2 Samuel 18: 9-10 Now Absalom happened to meet David’s men. He was riding his mule, and as the mule went under the thick branches of a large oak, Absalom’s hair got caught in the tree. He was left hanging in midair, while the mule he was riding kept on going. When one of the men saw what had happened, he told Joab, “I just saw Absalom hanging in an oak tree.” (funny!)
I strolled over to Amanda’s bedroom window where we have been watching our pet spider. Look how big she’s gotten!
I think she is the kind of spider that will lay eggs and then die before winter.
I watch every day to see if she is still with us. She has gotten quite large over the past weeks.
Job 8:14 What they trust in is fragile ; what they rely on is a spider’s web.
As I started around the house, I noticed this thing on the side of the house. Huh?? Looks like an ugly slug. I was tempted to go grab a salt shaker, but decided to leave the guy alone.
Then I walked to the back corner of the house where I let Teddy put in his flower garden. (my weed garden!) Impressive! The flowers were all in their glory!
I just wanted to share with you today the spectacular Fall that is happening. You better look quick before the snow flies. You know – this IS Michigan!
