I love the colors of Fall, the crisp morning air, a blazing fire in the fireplace in the evening, fresh apples and the smell of anything baked with pumpkin and spices.
The colors of nature in this season: the oranges, yellows, reds call to something deep within me that I don't fully understand. I have been known to pull to the side of the road to just sit and soak in the beauty of it. That in itself sort of surprises me, because I don't like orange. I don't think that I even own anything that is orange.
But, I do have a creator God who will take colors from his palette, double load his brush, step back and say, "Watch this! I hope you love it."
Then he paints a landscape that takes my breath away.
Maybe that's why I struggle at times in the Fall. The season that makes me want to pause and dwell in the creative genius of God is also the season where my schedule picks up quickly. Even though I'm back at it, inwardly I find myself fighting it. I'm not ready for all that this season brings.
So, maybe this blog entry is really for my benefit alone. He is reminding me of his continual presence and of the way he blesses me by showing a smidgen of his power for my eyes to behold while here in my temporary home.
Psalm 104:32 says, " May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works - who looks at the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke."
