winter is an etching,
spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting,
and autumn a mosaic of them all.
Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
~ Elizabeth Lawrence
I myself find God in the beauty of turning leaves, and in the gentle hearts of friends, and in love. The evidence of God’s grace is all around us, even in this difficult age we live in. And in moments of stress I feel the power of His support and cannot imagine how anyone lives without faith.
I walk in the September moonlight with the dogs and breathe the sweet smoky smell and see the sugar maples coloring the night and I look at the white stars so far away and wish a happy autumn to my friends all over the world.
