Loving October

October. Love October. Driving along streets lined with bright golds, oranges and reds makes me want to stop and take a photo every block. I can't help myself. I am an artist and a lover of our Great Creator. So I pull over, take a picture, go on my way. I am trying to capture the beauty. Maybe I will post it later to share some of the moment with dear friends.

The beauty of creation is something that always beings a smile to me. It doesn't have to be trees. Sometimes its a doggy in a car, ears flapping in the wind with the biggest smile, feeling free. Or maybe its holding a grandbaby with their chubby little fingers holding tight to a bottle or toy.


We continually hear of fires, hurricanes and earthquakes. Creation is also powerful. We are overwhelmed with it as it surrounds us.

I have been to many other countries. Places with huge mountains, islands surrounded by oceans, fabulous waterfalls and rolling hills. I am so amazed by the diversity of it all. It doesn't have to be a fancy place but even the fall leaves in my very own neighborhood make me enjoy the beauty.

It's true that I will be raking those leaves very soon but I want to enjoy them. And when October turns to November and the weather gets colder, there will be beauty in that too. Someone please remind me of this in January...

I always feel like I accomplish a lot in Winter. It is not my favorite season but I appreciate the time inside. It has its own beauty. Then I am incredibly thankful when Spring comes and once again I am outside.

I live in a four season state. I definitely appreciate the variety. So right now I am relishing my time outside on lovely fall days. Stopping on my walks to take pictures. Closing my eyes to imprint them on my mind.
