"Praise and thanksgiving, Father we offer
Harvest of sown fields, fruits of the orchard,
hay from the mown fields, blossom and wood."
Even though God has created beauty for us to enjoy in each and every season the of the year, fall is my favorite! I just love all the colors~ oranges, rusts, and golds. I love the smells outside...the dry crisp air~ and I love the sounds of the dry leaves rustling, the squirrels hunting for food to store and the geese flying overhead on their way from the river at the end of our block to the nearby field and lake. Of course fall is also a time for gathering what the farmers and ranchers have sown. Harvest. And what's not to love about pumpkins, gourds, and squash picked from our gardens, too. Autumn has so many attributes to offer us.
It is so beautiful up here in the upper Midwest, I would like autumn to last 6 months of the year. Yet, God in all his majesty, has created the 4 seasons for us to enjoy. I just enjoy fall a little more than the others! It is a time to pause and give thanks for the beauty of God's creation and the bounty of our farmers and ranchers hard work. Thank you Lord for another fall season that is filled with your glory!
