The changing colors of autumn are one of my two favorite seasons of the year. Each one brings with it the revelation of the heart of God: His love for His creation.
His expression of fall color is beautifully displayed when the temperature drops and then leaves turn so vibrant. What strong smells this season brings along with the insatiable desire to jump in a pile of leaves.
I remember when we lived on 102 ares in Alden, NY, and we had these ginormous Maple trees that dropped so many colors. We could make a daily path through orange, red and yellow leaves from the road to the house. That would go on for several weeks...ah, memories are something that no one can take from you. I only wish I'd had my camera back then.
Here in Texas, tho, the leaves don't turn too much...there are some maples here and there, but for the most part, they like a different climate. And even when it does get colder, we don't have the spectacular show of His beauty like in the northern climates. Perhaps that's to encourage those who must endure such harsh winters; one last sprinkling of color to revel in before everything dies off.
