Changing Of The Guard ....


Rain, autumn leaves,
wind rustling through the pines, cloud draped moon, breath suspended mid air, a tinge of frost with the last of the garden
hanging on by deep roots
and straw bed covers. Oh how I marvel at the work of
God's creative hand
exchanging the pages of summer for the warm fire glow of fall.

Dear Mrs. Mac,
A wonderful piece of poetry midst in our stormy, rainy night.
The autumn for sure is a hymn of praise that too. I should think more of that, instead of worrying about all the things I should have done before king winter is knocking on the door.
Today I at least have got to save the old hammock from the storm.

Your beautiful Idaho scenery might be a part of Norway, such beautiful surroundings.
Yours being mightier and larger, of course.
Have a blessed Sunday.
From Felisol

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year! As the abundance of summer winds down Fall ushers in a slower pace and leaves me feeling refreshed!

Beautifully said with a beautiful picture to illustrate.
What a wonderful season Autumn is, filed with color, fragrance and the message that God loves us in the color of every leaf and frosty morning.

I'm way behind in my blog reading - just read your post about Nathan. And I marvel (again) at the goodness of the Lord - and how He speaks to us - and fulfills what He has spoken! You are indeed blessed!
