September 19, 2009 Autumn Is Upon Us!...

Autumn Pleasures...

Another Autumn is upon us, and with it many changes. In preparation for the routines that Nature follows, the leaves will change color, if you have those kinds of trees near you, which I mostly do not. I miss that.

But we do have many fruit and nut bearing trees that are known to this area. So harvesting is just round the corner.

In all of the changes that are overtaking the scenery and routines, with summer over, school begun and harvesting being prepared for, there is also, today, the birthday of my oldest nephew. He is 24 today. Amazing. To think, he was just turning 14 when I first met him. And now, he is a man.

Life is definitely full of changes. I have said it many times before. It is sad sometimes to see how quickly it all goes, but... at the same time, it is very exciting.

I look forward to seeing where the Lord directs your life, Ale. May your heart always be directed to follow in His steps and where He leads you.

With so much love,
Zia Celita

Your words spoke to me. Changes are always among us. I try to believe that GOD has a plan in it all, but its so hard to hold onto anymore. BIG HUGS

Dear Lynda,
May the Lord grant you His peace in each of the changes is your life. May He fill you with "strength for today and hope for tomorrow" and give you an unexplainable joy to carry you through each challenge and true rest as you wait on, lean on, and cling to Him.

Proverbs 3:5-6
1 Corinthians 10:13

All things "come, to pass..."

hugs back,

Your paper cut is gorgeous. You are such a good designer!

I live in an agricultural area so mark the changing seasons with the cycle of planting and harvest. It is SO beautiful to see the corn and beans ready for harvest and the displays of pumpkins and hay bales in front yards or on front porches. God is good.
