More than just leaves...
I see friends on Facebook whose status each day is what they are thankful for.
We're trying at dinner to talk about our day and what it is we have to give thanks about.
But it's all so miniscule compared to all the blessings that God has showered down on us.
Here in the Midwest the color is spectacular.
Every leaf is trying to outdo it's neighbor in brilliance.
Footsteps are muffled in golden carpets and the sun filters through a canopy of the same; and then the wind blows and the leaves swirl down and take your breath away.
"Pour out Your unfailing love on those who love You.
Your unfailing love, O Lord, is a vast as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of Your wings." Psalm 36:10,5,7
As I walk through this fall's scape I am reminded by the sheltering canopies of the shelter of His wings, of the paths He's prepared for me as I kick through golden carpets and of His many, many blessings as He pours out His unfailing love, as bountiful as the autumn leaves that swirl around me.
