The heat of summer has passed away,

Giving way to gorgeous color everywhere,

God’s paintbrush caresses the trees,

Casts brilliant hues throughout the landscape,

Fills the sky with burnt orange, crimson and gold,

Autumn reminds us of the coming winter,

Soon we’ll be blanketed with white,

Encased in  shroud of ice,

Struggling to keep our balance,

Watching icicles clinging to the eaves,

Growing longer with each day,

But for now,


Soak it all in,

Delight in the glory of so many hues,

The brocaded tapestry of color,

Created by the One True God.

My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
