Autumn in The LOFT

Autumn in lower Alabama doesn’t look starkly different from summer. The temps do drop for a portion of the season. Mornings do get crisp and evenings do get a chill. In fact I have a pot of vegetable beef soup simmering right now for this semi cool morning. Lets see what is the temp at this writing? Oh well . . . 69. It was cooler this morning and I’m gonna enjoy my soup imageanyway 🙂

I do get a thrill seeing Autumn’s Artist at work and looking closely I found some Fall colors right here in our own yard. See.

This is our elm tree; well, a close up of our elm tree so you could see that color I found. image



And these are the marigolds in our front bed. It’s not their aroma that endears them to me.  🙂image

And if you look closely here you will see our Umbrella tree’s leaves are turning yellow; she will eventually loose them all. image 

Pumpkins! One of Autumn’s fruits (vegetables). Traveling from lower Alabama to Georgia last year we found these. IMG_1329Beautiful aren’t they?  Well, that about covers Autumn’s colors for me.

And now that it is Autumn, I’m already having thoughts of Winter and Christmas; but that’s another post. Perhaps . . .

Protection and Safety

I see a theme in my praying today for family and friends. Protection and safety from the evil one and those who do his will. Yes, satan has a will too. And a plan for each soul. Many are in his ranks, some I believe by conscious choice; most, I think, by default. Either way it seems good and right to cover people with prayers for protection and safety as we move about our lives doing our best to do the will of GOD. 

1 Peter 5:8 (CJB)

Stay sober, stay alert! Your enemy, the Adversary, stalks about like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

John 10:10 (CJB)

10 The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure.

Life in the fullest measure. Yes, that’s our GOD. He means to give us life eternal and life temporal to the fullest measure.

Blessings! Until Next Time ~ ~ ~ Kathie
