The last vestiges of summer's searing heat flare across our autumn sky. Exhausted, depleted, they leave their mark in colorful hues. A whispered good-bye, as the sky's cool breath pushes the strands into summer's compartment, awaiting next year's return.

The colors of autumn mornings sparkle with children dressed in red sweatshirts, brown sweaters, and long pants to greet their morning yellow bus. The chill will deepen, night times wrapped in warm blankets with wisps of swirling smoke rising from cozy chimneys.
One season paints the next as the rhythm of time gently rolls into predictable patters. Each season with its own joys and colors.
And the Good Lord paints them all.
