|On my front porch....|
|I love the way the tips of the leaves were touched in red, like a paint brush.|
I have had a terrible time trying to get the house decorated for Autumn in the midst of still trying to find a permanent place for everything. I feel a bit out of sorts but feel that things are finally starting to come together. I have managed to take many pictures as I have enjoyed the leaves change, the days shorten and fireplaces awaken from their long slumber.
|What is Autumn without a good bbq? Thankful for smoked pork and my man!|
|Thankful for my girls and local fall fairs.|
|Thankful for backyard fires and roasting marshmallows.|
And in all of this Thanksgiving has snuck (again? is that a word?) up on me and I am reminded that there are seasons for everything and that nothing waits for me. Time comes and goes and takes no days off. I have much to be thankful for. I have my family; that given through natural means and that forged by the work of Christ. I am thankful for my hardworking husband who goes far beyond just providing for us. I am thankful for our home and all that God has put as stewards over. I am thankful for the finished work of Christ. I am thankful for the gift of being able to enjoy beauty in all the things I see.

his cause for a blueberry pie can rest easy.)
|Thankful that I live in such a beautiful area!|
