Autumn Is Underway


Summer is my favorite season of all, but who can deny the first month of Fall is absolutely glorious in New England? The Roost posted some fun ideas to celebrate the new season. (She's got some good recipes, too!)

I too have been pondering the wonder of this Earth. One of the verses of Great Is Thy Faithfulness rings in my head:
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

The trees turning all shades of color help remind me how big God is, that He is control of the universe and causes the season to change. I am such a small speck in the timeline of eternity, in the Grand Design and yet God sees me, knows me, loves me. It's too much for me to take in.

You can't help but stand in awe of who He is.
