I'm glad that Thanksgiving is in the late Autumn. These cool, beautiful days are my restful time of year & I have a chance to reflect over all we've accomplished during the long hot Summer! Harvest is in, cattle are sold, our garden is complete except for a couple of rows of pumpkins that I'm trying to let ripen for as long as possible! Autumn just makes me so full of gratitude. I thank God for blessing us with such a life full of love and natures bounty.
Psalm 65:5-13 By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance, O God of our salvation; you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. By your strength you established the mountains; you are girded with might. You silence the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples. Those who live at earth's farthest bounds are awed by your signs; you make the gateways of the morning and the evening shout for joy. You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide the people with grain, for so you have prepared it. You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth. You crown the year with your bounty; your wagon tracks overflow with richness. The pastures of the wilderness overflow, the hills gird themselves with joy, the meadows clothe themselves with flocks, the valleys deck themselves with grain, they shout and sing together for joy
Psalm 104 is full of the Splendor of God & His creation too. I hope you find time to read it, it is so beautiful. Here are verses & from it:
14 He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate—bringing forth food from the earth:
15 wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their heartsBy the way, Happy October!! I hope you all have a blessed day
