I simply can't express what it has meant to have access these past months to our local trail. When the COVID lockdown started I, like countless others, needed to get outside and breathe fresh air! So beginning in March I would bundle up and get going!
Throughout these past seven months I have developed a group of friends (although we don't know each other personally). We wave, say good morning, and basically enjoy the beauty of God's artistic talent! During these past seven months I've seen trees go from empty branches, to budding, to birds singing and building nests. Now I'm viewing leaves in an array of colors accompanied by temperatures ranging from chilly to mid-morning warm! It is simply glorious especially as the sun shines on the reds, oranges and bright yellows of the trees lining my path and my front yard!
We are going to gather around our fire pit tonight and enjoy the milder weather before it becomes time to wrap up in blankets! But I want to take this opportunity to just thank the Lord for this beautiful time of year and the ability to be able to enjoy it. I am so blessed to have a sweet, loving family; a great church; an incredible spouse and a mom that has taught me to love Jesus since I could understand words.
May God bless your fall with a ton of blessings and I pray if you don't know Him personally, you will seek Him because He's not in the habit of hiding!
Jesus Comforts His Disciples
14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
