The promise of Fall

The Dogwood leaves are beginning to turn and I am coming across some golden maples strewn across our driveway.
The promise of Fall... that's what I always say when I see early "color"...
a promise that Autumn is on her way!
I do believe it's my favorite time of the year! I love the richness of the earthy colors, the bold oranges and reds. Just does something to me!
And I am "chomping at the bits" to decorate our home with colorful Fall leaves, Autumn wreaths, seasonal flowers, autumn scents and pumpkins of every size!
I am really having to restrain myself for I usually wait until the last week of August to turn our home into a magical autumn land, hanging the autumn flag, the outdoor wreaths. Our Anna always decorates her home in early August and this time April was persuaded by Makenna to add a few autumn touches while burning candles, sending those wonderful autumn smells throughout the house.
We are all awaiting one of the most magical times of the year! It's as if God reaches down with His paint brush and adds a bit more color each day. I find myself constantly seeking out His handiwork and I feel incredibly blessed to watch autumn unfold right before my eyes!
Autumn's majestic richness...selah...words just don't seem to do it justice.
