Yellow

A brilliant sea of yellow greets me in the garden this week as the mums awaken from their slumber and show their cheerful faces.
As they awaken, the cone flowers start their season of slumber,
Joining in a wave-like form behind them comes the goldenrod.
"See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life." Deuteronomy 32:39a
The old and the new.
"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven-" Ecclesiastes 3:1
Life comes from death.
"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." John 12:24
Abundant life.
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10

Lora,

A lovely yellow post. I pulled out some fall place mats today and could barely believe it is that time of year.

I am sure I have said this before but I envy you being in the south because of the difference in trees, flowers, and most of all birds.

I long to see blue birds and orioles, hear the mocking birds. There is a part of me that still wants to be in the south.

Changing of seasons to me is a great reminder of God's beauty. Not only in nature, but how I also change during seasons of my life.

Beautiful pictures!
