Chapter 10, Page 14, Book 12

Orange pumpkins,  a bounty of squash, ears of dried corn and pots of beautiful burgundy and yellow mums

Visual candy corn 

Autumn asks only that we just slow down and in a measured pace, consider making room in our hearts for blessings hidden 

I think Autumn reveals to us a lot about our faith. It's a season when things are reserved, calming. Leaves are changing colors and twirling to the ground. It's almost mystical. There is still color, but it's muted. The air is brisk and tangy. Some view the falling leaves as a peaceful wait period before the promises of Spring and renewal. 

Using the visual candy corn or the real thing, I think we can save up enough Candy Corn to last us till Spring

Sweet blessings to you all this day.

I see autumn as a time where we receive bounty for our hard work. I feel I am in the autumn of my life and this is a time to enjoy all the good things that have been part of my life all through it. Wishes for a wonderful Sunday!

I like that "the air is brisk and tangy". That is a good description of autumn air indeed! Though today at 85 degrees for our high, it doesn't seem too autumn like here!
