Autumn Marks Its Season

     Autumn stirs my senses and beckons me to embrace its vibrancy like no other season of the year.  Pumpkin orange, sun-fire yellow, burnt cranberry, maple-leaf red encircle me like a forest of color.  Candles glowing dance with fragrances of autumn leaves, apple cider, and pumpkin pie spice.  The whole house tingles with the season's sensations and the anticipation of holiday celebrations.
     Gratefully, the Lord has created beauty for each season of the year and each season of our lives.  To Him be all praise, honor, glory, and thanksgiving:
