Even though it's October 1st the leaves on the trees here in Northeastern Oklahoma
have not shown their colors of Autumn yet.
Within the next few weeks we will hopefully see the beauty
of the season in our foliage.
I say this because I'm hoping the severe drought we had
this summer will not rob us of the wonderful colors.
My sister, Susan, who lives in the Kansas City area, sent me an email on Thursday.
She does not have a blog, but she writes some of the best thoughts that she shares in emails.
With her permission I'm posting her email.
Taking a zig-zag through town yesterday, I spied the fall colors starting to make an appearance around the landscape. My usual thrill from seeing fall color is as familiar as an old friend. Turning the corner brings hope of seeing more trees that have begun the change from God's paint brush. Hues that speak to me, myself and I. We three happen to agree on most things, especially when fall shows off in ways that a peacock take hints from. I sometime utter my delight out loud and I, myself or me will confirm. : )
Something about the seasonal changes bring memories of comfortable, secure and cozy moments tucked safely in the timeline of years past.... geese flying in a 'V' shape southward.... aroma of apple dumplings, caramel corn, and hot cocoa.... warm jackets.... cold nose.... piles of leaves.... sitting on the porch swing with a blanket.... the glow from a candle inside the friendly jack-o-lantern.... etc.
Take time to see the scenery from God's paint brush, His touch is there are you looking?
Thank you, Susan for sharing your thoughts on Autumn.
Have fall colors arrived in your neck of the woods yet?
