Autumn JOY

On the way to visit my parents, I drove through rain on a dreary morning.  By the time I arrived twenty minutes later, the rain had stopped, but the dreary continued.  However, during my visit, the sun appeared, and when we looked out into the backyard, our eyes met a beautiful sight.  The sun was shining brightly through the golden leaves, and it was nothing short of breathtaking.

I hope that you are taking the time to enjoy this season of God's creation, and making time to put the JOY in each day.  Some days, JOY comes easy... and other days you might have to look harder.  No matter how it comes... make time to find it.  It will change your outlook on the day.

I found JOY in the golden brilliance of God's creation.

Today, I am thankful for:
1. JOY in unexpected places
2. pumpkins of all shapes and sizes
3. blue sky & sunshine
4. several blue jays in the yard

Thought: God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?"


  1. Today I'm thankful for a good morning getting the troops ready for school AND the chance to get away for the weekend with family. (I'm choosing to embrace the "camp" experience this year.) :)

  2. Chatty Cathies Unite! LOL!

    Okay, I could have written this post. Perhaps we really are cut from the same bolt. I am thankful at least some of those many seconds...first thing in the morning and last thing at night and sometimes during the day, which all amounts to "not enough."

    Lovely photos of the golds!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
