My Favorite Season of the year.... Autumn


...This time of year has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. Our Wedding Anniversary is October and most of our vacations are spent during this season. What do you think of when Autumn begins? My thoughts rush to the beginning of cool nights. Colors of the leaves decorating the outdoors as far as your eyes can see with their brilliance. Pumpkins, apples, fresh Pies, Soups, Gingerbread with warm tapioca cream. Children helping Mom and Dad raking the leaves then making hills to dive into. Hayrides, hiking trails, campfires for cooking hotdogs followed by smores. Singing your favorite hymns with your family & friends while gathered around watching as the fire starts to die down. Ending a perfect night. Below is a poem my sister, Debbie Curtis wrote about the harvest season. This poem says what I feel about the harvest and so I thought it was Perfect for this post! I will also be posting some of her Yummy recipes very soon! Thank you Debbie for sharing !!

HARVEST BLESSINGS

Pumpkins, apples, corn stalks, and gourds

hayrides, cider, and bonfires with smores

Families all gather with thankful hearts

Yet another fall season is ready to start

Falling leaves gold, orange and brown

slowly but surely float to the ground

Cool nights with moon so bright

stars in the sky twinkle their light

Thanksgivings approaching

God's blessings to share

so make room at your table

and show someone you care

Remember as Christians our

witness to bare

yields lives that are changed

because of our prayers
