God is so good. Autumn is God's greatest art project in my opinion. He uses no shortage of colours, textures, line, contrast and perspective. The images are like a colourful symphony.
Autumn flashes by so quickly in our neck of the Canadian woods, that you have to capture these moments and savour them for as long as you can. The winter here is long and hard. I am especially thankful that this Autumn has been longer than usual. Last year, we had snow in September and all of the leaves fell on one day. This year the leaves are still on the trees and are falling more deliberately and slowly. Hopefully, we can take a few more walks, collect a few more leaves, sip tea by candlelight and savour every moment of Autumn.
by Katherine Mansfield
Now's the time when children's noses
All become as red as roses
And the colour of their faces
Makes me think of orchard places
Where the juicy apples grow,
And tomatoes in a row.
And to-day the hardened sinner
Never could be late for dinner,
But will jump up to the table
Just as soon as he is able,
Ask for three times hot roast mutton--
Oh! the shocking little glutton.
Come then, find your ball and racket,
Pop into your winter jacket,
With the lovely bear-skin lining.
While the sun is brightly shining,
Let us run and play together
And just love the autumn weather.
God Bless and enjoy the autumn.
