Golden Autumn Days







November is golden for a little while before she turns to steely gray.

A warm day is a special gift she gives before she turns to blowing her chilling winds.

But she ushers in a season of thankfulness, 
that warm season of remembering and reflection.

Can you see the wisdom in those pilgrims of long ago,
--who, more than we will ever know or comprehend--
 knew about the blessings of plenty, 
following the seasons of very little.

Thankful be...

As I turn the calendar page over to the eleventh page,
I need to count my many blessings, one by one.

Beautiful thoughts to go with your beautiful pictures.
We awoke to a beautiful glowing November sky. Now... the rain has begun....a prelude to snow.

Beautiful Joni. November is truly special, I feel so blessed throughout the year and am always thanking and loving God above, but knowing and preparing for Thanksgiving Day along with the weather changes going on outside creates such a feeling of warmth.
