Colors Roll Across an Autumn Sky
|Arizona Fall sunset last night as seen through our Palo Verde tree|
The last vestiges of summer’s searing heat flare across our autumn sky. Exhausted, depleted, they leave their mark in colorful hues. A whispered good-bye, as the sky’s cool breath pushes the strands into summer’s compartment, awaiting next year’s return.
The colors of autumn mornings sparkle with children dressed in red sweatshirts, brown sweaters, and long pants to greet their morning yellow bus. The chill will deepen, night times wrapped in warm blankets with wisps of swirling smoke rising from cozy chimneys.
One season paints the next as the rhythm of time gently rolls into predictable patters. Each season with its own joys and colors.
And the Good Lord paints them all.

How will you mark this season with the Lord?
Those photos are absolutely glorious Janis! Isn’t He just the best Artist ever!
I enjoyed your thankful points. Learning braille? How wonderful that would be! Thank You Lord for this provision of ‘reading’ that you inspired Mr Braille to invent for the vision impaired of this world!
Bless you Janis for thinking of others the way that you do…
Such beautiful photos! Makes me thankful for the eyes God gave me so that I can see his awe-inspiring creation.
Janis, the last sentence was so thought provoking! I would have to answer – growing and learning. Definitely some changes for me. But, change can be a really good thing. Thanks for sharing and asking. Excited for you to be featured on incourage. I’ll be reading!
Gorgeous pictures! Congratulations on the new writing project!
Have a blessed week!
God is such a Master of color – His work is breathtaking!
I’m planning to spend the day in the mountains with my sons one day this week. The trees should be beautiful.
I’ll join you in being thankful for #315 – Christian friends to support and pray for me. I’m very grateful for each one of them – including you!
Wow, those are gorgeous pictures. I love to take pictures of the sky. Blessings ~
Thank you all for visiting and your sweet comments. We are so blessed to be able to see the Lord’s magnificent creations and artistry in the sky. Working with the visually impaired and a student who has been blind from birth have given me new insights and appreciation for the gift of sight.
I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.
God Bless You 🙂
