The colors of autumn

The colors of autumn always spark a feeling of awe in my spirit.  Living in New England and experiencing the changing of the seasons such a blessing.

This week, look at the trees like you’re seeing them for the first time.  Pick up an acorn and see the intricate pattern on top.  Follow a leaf flutter down off a tree, then hold it in your hand.  Notice the color, the stem branching out into each section of the leaf.  See how it isn’t shaped perfectly, the color isn’t uniform, yet it is beautiful.

Nature has a way of bringing us closer to the spirit of God.  Stop long enough to view of colors as you drive, or look out your window at the tree in your backyard and you will feel the presence of God.  He is right there waiting for you to notice him.
