Sunlight rises through skeletal remnants of trees that once were lush with a canopy of green.

The sunshade turns from hues of chartreuse and emerald to rust, gold and crimson.

The demise of summer is right around the corner.

When the heat soars, so do our tempers. Our level of patience seems to wither along with the flowers. When fall approaches Minnesota, we know that winter isn’t far off and we want to hang on to every precious bit of sunshine and fresh, crisp air.

Soon enough we’ll have to hibernate again, along with the bears, for at least 5 or 6 months of bone chilling cold. It seems we have become natural hibernators.

Along with the decreasing temperatures, we have a shortage of sunshine and depression can easily set in. Spring brings a treasure of sun into our lives again.

When the sun shines, we thrive. When Jesus is in our lives we also shine and no amount of difficult weather or circumstances can take that “Son” light away.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. 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

    Does it feel like Fall now? We are about to have a couple of days with a high in the 60s, but it still feels like a few 80s days may not be far off. Or am I being cynical?

      Last week we had a couple of chilly days. This week is a mixed bag. Next week is supposed to be in the 60’s. The color are changing and that always brings thoughts of autumn. The season seems to go so fast. I enjoy this one most of all.

        In the South, I liked Autumn because of football, but disliked it because I had to go back to school – growing up. Otherwise, it got “not as hot” and wetter. But I agree with you now that we are living in Pennsylvania. I look forward to the color change, which has not yet started.
