What if...? Day 3

These past few sunny weeks I have been thrilled by the extraordinary autumn colours.  Driving around Bucks there are certain places where the blends of gold, copper and yellow are wonderful.  No trips to New England needed here!   It is as if the trees are clinging to their leaves for as long as possible, although my lawn tells a different story.   It is so easy when racing from one thing to another, to ignore natures picture around us, but just the briefest acknowledgement that colour, texture and form are freely available in God's natural world, puts man-made life into perspective.  We don't have to do it all........

What if each of us stopped for a moment today and smiled at the autumn trees?

  1. Chance would be a fine thing.
    My bus trips into town afford precious little by way of scenery, but I do know from previous happier days how lovely Buck's can be at this time of year.
    Enjoy while you may.
