Autumn Joy

Not to be confused with the plant with the bee-lovin' pink and red fall flowers.
This joy is GOLD.
First spotted one afternoon after school. 
Bright, almost blinding in the sun.
Out of place, 
as every other branch is still green.
Then a closer inspection. 
Inner leaves are losing their chlorophyll.
Now isn't that just another miracle in the garden? That yellow has been there all the time and is revealed to us only in the fall. I can relate this to my walk with God because He is with me all the time!
God is everywhere.
Look for Him!

Amen! Yes He is. I don't know why it is but I always feel closer to My Lord God in the fall. A time for change and seeing the beauty that is within. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I can always count on you my blogging friend.

Marilyn, yours words ring true! He is always with us every step of the way. The changing of the leaves reminds me of how much God does love and how he showers us with these incredibly beautiful blessings each day! Have a beautiful weekend dear friend and enjoy!

I was over on another blog and saw this little heart icon in the followers block - gosh - I have forgotten what those look like, but I knew I recognized the heart... it's yours! (Since WordPress doesn't have the gadget I don't get to see them.) It was fun spotting it!
Those leaves are beautiful and I love the last sentiments ... so true!
Take care and HUGS!
