It's Fall Y'all

Nothing pleases me more than decorating the front porch for Fall. The colors of the mums are beyond beautiful, and the pumpkins just look so homey. Leave it to our Lord to make the dry, dying foliage so spectacular and moving. The only thing missing so far this year, is the cooler temperatures. But with the beauty of Autumn, how can I really complain?

The mums I planted earlier in my two blue pickle pots around the pump are blooming tremendously and are such a source of joy for me. How did God come up with such beautiful things? Not to mention creating beings as complex as humans? It boggles the mind. But, the point of all this, is that I want to say Thank You to my LORD for His creations and his beautiful world.

I spent the day with my sister yesterday and enjoyed it so much. We found the three new pots on the porch, and also looked at Christmas decorations. I even bought one gift, and she bought two. Eventhough it was too hot for us, and we were drained and exhausted when we left Little Rock, we had a lot of fun and just enjoyed being together. Sisters are a gift from God. I've seen that phrase often, but I have experienced the truth of it more times than I can count. Thank you Lord, for all three of my sisters.

I hope and pray you all can enjoy this time when the air begins to dry out, the colors of Fall decorate our world, and the anticipation of Christmas begins to seep into our minds.

I love fall and I bought two mums a couple of weeks ago. One of them is doing great in the big pot Richard brought me from Mexico and the other is sad. I love pumpkins,but they wish it were cooler outside as much as I do.
