Adding a Few Items for Fall

I love this time of year.  I love watching the colors change...shifting from vibrant greens to bright yellows, oranges, and reds!  Everything comes to life in a new way, even though we are marking the end of a season.  God is good, even in the passing of life there is rebirth and newness.

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. ..Ecclesiastes 3:1

My Mom passed away 2 years ago September 27th.  She never liked the Fall.  She said it reminded her of death and dying.  I told her that that was true, but without death there can be no rebirth, no new life.  She agreed, from then on we'd talk about the leaves crackling under our feet and how good the crispness in the air felt.

I decided to create a couple of new birdhouses commemorating the Fall season.  If she were here, she would have said, "Oh Honey, I love them!"  I miss those words of encouragement, the love that flowed through every comment she made to me. 

Hold close those you love...remember to tell them how much they mean to you and how very important they are to your life.  You never know what tomorrow might bring.

Blessings to everyone!
