Cold Weather.

We had snow falling quite often last week.  It was so pretty.  But yes, very cold.
I have consumed copious amounts of tea.
So thankful for the warm fire.  And the woodshed stocked with firewood.  (Not so much the many treks out to get the firewood but… you can’t have everything.)
Also, I am happy I didn’t fall off the road on my way to work last week.  I fell in love with my 4 wheel drive that day.  I know I wouldn’t have gotten to work without it.  It drove like a dream.

We had the most amazing icicles.
Seriously.

     turning leaves

     Summer is over and Fall is here! I am always surprised how excited I get every time it comes around. The brilliant-red of the turning leaves always stirs something inside of me. I start thinking about all the cozy evenings. Wrapping myself in a blanket at the fireside reading Dickens and listening to the pattering of raindrops against the window panes. The smell of hot cider floating on the air and the sound of joy and laughter ringing through the house. Family and Friends coming to visit and share a meal. Oh, the meals of Fall and Winter are so lovely… Roasted chicken, stuffed with Mamas savoury sage dressing, gravy and mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, homemade donuts… comfort food, seriously. But yes,  pretty soon the colourful leaves begin to drop one by one to join the leaves of yesteryear upon the ground. It amazes me how anyone could observe the changing seasons and not see The Creator.  It is so evident to me that he has planned out every detail [from the falling leaves to your life story] according to His purpose. Reminds me of a song out of Psalm 8.

     Oh Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Thy name, in all the earth! Who hast set Thy glory above the heavens. When I consider the heavens the works of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars which Thou hast ordained, the sheep and the oxen, the beast of the field, the fowl of the air, the fish of the sea… What is man that Thou art mindful of him.

     I love that song. Life gets busy but I hope I’ll always have time to stop and admire Gods handiwork. And I desire to never stop singing His praises. He is so worthy of them.

     Go out, admire the falling leaves.
