An Autumn message with Thanksgiving …

“The blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving, The honor and power and strength, To our God forever and ever and ever! Oh, Yes!” Revelation 7:12

Autumn

Corduroy slacks, flannels, turtleneck shirts
Leaves turning color, falling, crunching under foot
Crops in the field drying, changing color
The hum of harvest equipment
Animals preparing for winter—
Squirrels with walnut cheeks
Children dressing up for Halloween
being someone or something else for a day
Football games–especially the marching band
Pumpkins, pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream
Apples dipped into caramel or becoming apple pie
Skies so blue, sunsets so orange
Trees painting brilliant pictures
Cool nights, warm pajamas, comforters
Slowing down—preparing for winter
Watching for first blooms of spring
Enjoying carefree days of summer …
Finally, autumn again
Thank you, God, for creating it all. Amen.
