Fall is beautiful here in the midwestern US, with vibrant leaf colors and cooler temperatures. I am reminded that God is such an amazing creator that He even made the discards of the trees a thing of beauty. How wonderful to see the sun shining on, and through, the leaves on the trees and again as they become a carpet under the tree. Yes, winter is coming and it tends to be a bit long and dreary, though it does have its own beauty. How nice to have this brief time of riotous color flame to life, before the leaves dry up and break down to soil.
