You’ve heard that before, haven’t you?

We moved to Minnesota from Texas  last winter. I’ve always heard how intense the autumn leaves can be in the north. I haven’t had to be deliberate about “stopping to smell the roses,” or taking time to enjoy the beauty around me.

With bright, intense, amazing colors filling my vision everywhere I look, it’s more like the world is a canvas awash in color. The colors are as vibrant in the fall as they are in the 11218857_10207907903521485_3291168080911024215_nspring.  Here, there is as much beauty in dying leaves as there is in spring flowers.

God has outdone Himself with the colors. His creativity astounds me.

And we, His children, should be creative too!

What about you? Do you have a skill or a craft you enjoy? What do you love to create?
