The Gratitude Project - Day 13

This morning, I looked out my window to see the leaves raining down. One thing I love about living at this house is watching the leaves change colors every fall, and then, with the slightest breeze, get blown to the ground. It is simply a beautiful thing to see, and it's something I look forward to every year.

Besides the leaves, there are many other beautiful fall signs and colors bursting out at every turn. This is my favorite time of year (right next to spring), and I am so thankful that God shows me his beauty in all of His creation.

God promised Noah that there would always be seasons. He keeps His promises. So I know, each year I will be able to sit at my window and see the beauty of the leaves falling.

This morning, I just couldn't stand it, so I went outside and tried to capture some of the beauty in photos. No photo could ever truly show all the beauty of nature. It was so much more beautiful in front of me. But I want to share with you some of what I observed.



This is what my woods look like in the fall. BEAUTIFUL!!


I LOVE the pinecones that are all over my yard right now. 

This is my neighbors tree that I see across from my house each day. I LOVE this time of year when their tree starts turning colors. I have no idea what kind of tree this is, but I'm glad they planted it in their yard!

 My sasanqua tree blooms every year around the end of October or the first of November. It has beautiful pink flowers that last through a lot of the cool weather. It is a beautiful burst of color this time of year.

Every fall, my althea tree's leaves turn light yellow and green. In the spring, it puts out beautiful purple flowers. It is equally beautiful in both seasons.

In the fall, my lemon balm herb turns from a bright green to a beautiful purple and green mix. It is so amazing to see how this plant can change so much during the year.

When I look at all of the beauty around me, it is easy to see why fall is one of my favorite seasons. I am so thankful that God makes His creation so diverse and gorgeous. It takes a BIG GOD to make things so different and all so beautiful.
