“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time…” ~Ecclesiastes 3:11
Our area is becoming a popular spot for stargazing because its nighttime sky is one of the darkest regions in the Eastern United States. Recently a group of amateur astronomers spent several nights at the local park exploring the sky. They were gracious enough to allow us to look through their massive telescopes. Hope is our family’s science buff, and she thoroughly enjoyed her first attempt at stargazing through the lens.
LEAVES OF AUTUMN
The leaves begin to turn.
About God’s love and beauty
This is the time to learn.
Just look outside your window
At colors bright and bold.
Leaves of red and orange and brown
And some look like pure gold.
You say you don’t believe in God?
I say, how can you doubt?
When you go to your window
And simply just look out.
Outside my kitchen window
A tree grows strong and tall.
It brings such joy and peace of mind
To watch leaves of autumn fall.
It sways in winds but never falters.
And from its pattern never alters.
It must be God; no man can say
I made that tree to look that way.
The sun rays form a halo
Around that big strong tree.
And there’s a voice that seems to say
Look up and think of Me.

1. My firstborn is home again! Shay arrived home on Sunday afternoon after spending 3 1/2 weeks in Florida. She had a good return flight and is now a pro at packing her bags and avoiding a TSA agent confiscating her full-size beauty products. She learned that lesson the hard way on her first flight. This picture of her and her lovely grandmas was taken at the airport in Florida when they dropped her off.
