Autumn


"Every season hath its pleasures
Filled with varied fruits of time,
Yet the harvest's golden treasures
Reaped in autumn, ever shine.

Though the leaves have done their duty,
And the flowers fade and die,
Still all nature gleams with beauty
As we pass her treasures by.

In the time of peace and plenty,
When all cares have ceased and fled,
Think we then of blessings many,
Which upon us have been shed.

We learn how lightly, quickly pass
This world and all that's in it.
Only one in so great mass,
There is not time to lose one minute.

Life's year thus begins and closes,
Days though shortening, still can shine,
Though at times there are no roses
Love is present all the time."
~ Terry Donnell Sharpe ~


Happy first day of Autumn, beautiful friends!
Have a blessed Lord's Day :)

Such a beautiful way to mark the most beautiful of seasons, my friend... Fall is my very favorite!

Pumpkins, apples, leaves, sweaters, football, cider, early evenings...

Happy Fall!

Such a lovely poem, and yes Fall is in the air! I have enjoyed this season coming, when years past it was never my favorite. Winter is what I look forward to.
So many things to be grateful for in the Lord, and I believe that is why I have enjoyed this season.

Beautiful photos. Those blue, blue skies, just breath taking!

You have a blessed Lords day as well!
