Fall is heavy upon us here in Indiana.
The kids have been thoroughly enjoying the benefits of a backyard full of huge old trees, with piles and piles of leaves to play in.
There have been outdoor homes made, where “rooms” of grass have been raked bare of the dry leaves and “hallways” were drawn in between the spaces to connect them.
Of course the kids have made leaf piles.
Piles and piles of them.
So there’s been a lot of jumping and running, and dry leaves in curly hair.
And swinging in Alix’s birthday hammock.
And a birthday bonfire.
And soon there will be the feasting of Thanksgiving, and the fun of wearing pilgrim dresses,
and then, the wonder and joy of celebrating a Miraculous Birth.
But let’s not hurry things along too much just yet!
Let’s be thankful and enjoy the changes God brings to our lives.
One at a time.
