Thankful for the Little Things

Often it’s the “little things” that make life so beautiful. Don’t miss them in search of bigger things, otherwise you’ll miss so much.

Here’s a song shared by “Under the Radar” http://undertheradar.reframemedia.com/ that I hope you enjoy, as I have today.

We have much to be thankful for this week, and always.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Autumn Serenade

Autumn's Serenade: Roses, Birds fly south, Leaves change color, fruit trees and rain, heather

When like a tune, late afternoon
Sunlight plays on roses
And crisp, fall air, becomes a stair
To walk from summer’s poses.

And with the fade, a serenade
To mark the changing season
The sound of flight, as birds alight,
Warmth and south, their reason.

As colors change and leaves arrange
In such extravaganza
You’ll hear and see, a melody,
That creates September’s stanza.

As nights draw in, the gentle rain
May soothe the soul and heart
And harvest gains of fruit-filled lanes,
Play a harmonizing part.

Embrace the autumn serenade
Hear what others miss!
Let sweet notes of fall, fill your soul
Raise your cheek to nature’s kiss!

~ Kim Batson

Sometimes I wax a bit poetic and this first week of autumn seems to be one of those times. My hope is that through these few verses you would take a moment to pause and reflect on the gift of God we are given in the changing seasons. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!
