Autumn

Ahh, this is when I know it's autumn, for real. This is when my heart lifts and sings - no matter how crazed the week has been or how hectic, stressed or moody.

When the maple outside my window turns to flame, my heart and soul, too, set on fire with dizzy color saturated contentment. I love autumn.

I love the Fall! The crisp cold morning air. All the vibrant colors. It was always my favorite season growing up. I miss it living in CA.

We have two trees just like this directly out our front door. Right now our whole front yard is littered RED. Beautiful.

Lori, I would love your house! Just for those trees! I grew up in the desert and so these just colors and this season - still, even after all these years here - make me a bit giddy. M

I think these amazing, flaming red trees are God's reminders of his famous burning bush. That he is THAT God, still here, still involved. And he shows us these beauties many, many times each fall. Once, I even think I caught him waving at me through the leaves. Enjoy his display!
