Fall Colors, the Harvest, and Family Time

Fall . . . it’s that time of year again.

Brilliant blue skies.

Leaves turning from green to a rainbow of colors.

A bountiful harvest for the farmer or gardener.

And for us, family time and so much we are thankful for.

675.  Laughter and giggles.
676.  Breaking bread together.
677.  Caramel apples and apple cider.
678.  Coming home with apples, pumpkins, squash, and corn, and oh, yes, peaches.
679.  Kylie’s description of going to the apple “torture,” her pronunciation of “orchard.”
680.  God’s provision in so many areas of our lives.
681.  Safety going and coming.
682.  Incredibly beautiful fall in the Pacific NW.
683.  The anthology that includes one of my pieces hitting the bookshelves this last week.
684.  Personal healing bit by bit for Bob and me following our visit to his brother’s.
685.  Gift of prayer and praying for friends and family.

  1. Fall, pumpkin pie, and Thanksgiving – after ten years in this country, it’s still a magical time because it’s so different to where I’m from. While we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, the month of December is synonymous with celebrations: it’s the Summer Holidays, end of our academic year, and Christmas.

    • Sounds like December is packed with celebratory activities in your homeland! I loved hearing you refer to Thanksgiving here as a “magical time” due to the differences in your country. It’s always interesting to hear someone from another culture/tradition speak to what seems so normal to us.
