Beautiful Fall

I don't remember a fall as beautiful as this one for many years. Normally we change from very hot and trees full of leaves to our mild winter temperatures and all the leaves on the ground - seemingly overnight. But this year we've beem treated to a veritable riot of colors.

I've heard explanations having to do with the temperature and amount of rainfall. But I believe it is a sign of God's great love to give us this gift of beauty. For to look at the splendid colors on display truly is a gift, as long as we slow our busy lives down enough to see and appreciate it.

As an aside - the surgery went well and I am in an immobilizer sling for four weeks, which translates to one handed typing. :)

The rarest Autumn morning,
of leaves set all ablaze.
The mildest touch of sunlight,
amid the Autumn haze.
The booted feet of daybreak,
falling to the ground,
The cool clear air a stirring,
God's poetry profound.

Our leaves were beautiful this year too...though to be honest they are every year. It's been rather mild though. Today, in fact, may have set a record. It was over 20 C - not normal temps for the middle of November.
