Autumn has been flighty and rather indecisive, but yet beautiful in its own lovely way. There are gloomy days, where it rains and we are stuck indoors. The air is cold and fingers go numb. Those days are the ones we stay in bed, and it takes all our willpower to crawl out from under the warm covers.
Then there are the gloriously sunny days, with clear blue skies. The air no longer holds its finger-numbing chill, but retains its crispness.
Those days are wonderful. Just to take a stroll by the lake, seeing the ducks and the geese paddling by, the sail boats in the distance.
Those days are perfect for heading out on our bikes, hearing the whirr of the wheels and the crinkle-crunch of the leaves as you pedal.
Those days are great for little explorers, to trudge through the ever-growing piles of leaves...
... and to relish the simple pleasures of jumping into those piles.
This week, we give thanks to God for autumn, and all its colours and beauty. We're just waiting for all of us to get well so that we can head out to enjoy more of fall's gloriousness!
What are you thankful for this week?
