The Autumn of Life
What a wondertime in life's autumn
when the leaves of the trees are all gold.
When God fills each day as He senates it
with memories, priceless and old
What a treasure-house filled with rare jewels
are the blessings of year upon year.
When life has been lived as you've lived it
in a home where God's presence is near
May the deep meaning surround this day
like the paintbrush of God up above,
Touch your life with wonderful blessings
and fill your heart brimful with His love

I try to care enough about all the moments of life to live all of them well. One thing we cannot do in life is to ignore it. Life teaches us lessons relentlessly. We learn to enjoy each happy part, to endure each costly part, to cope with every exhausting part, and to learn from every difficult part. It's important to learn the lessons well so that life is more meaningful and worthwhile.
Life's biggest lessons aren't learned all at once. Just like my little grandchildren I still have much to learn. We adults often find irrational reasons for judging, and complicated reasons for liking things or people. Children don't need complex reasons for enjoying or loving.
What matters most is that we learn from living
Have a SUPER Saturday everyone!
P.S. I am getting a notice that I've exceeded my limit for photos...and they won't let me upload any more. Has this happened to anyone else?
