Beautiful autumn colours. I envy the dramatic change in seasons and all those gorgeous leaves. It just gets wetter and a bit greener (!) here in winter.

Beautiful !

This layout was done in response to a challenge at Cocoa Daisy, to make a fall-themed layout with the title as part of the journaling.

The photo is of a church in downtown La Ronge, seen through fall foliage, and most of my journaling is a poem by Ted Loder from his books Guerillas of Grace:

O extravagant God,
in this ripening, red-tinged autumn,
waken in me a sense of joy
in just being alive.
joy for nothing in general
except everything in particular;
joy in the sun and rain
mating with earth to birth a harvest;
joy in soft light
through shyly disrobing trees;
joy in the acolyte moon
setting halos around processing clouds;
joy in the beating of a thousand wings
mysteriously knowing which way is warm;
joy in the taste of bread and wine,
the smell of dawn,
a touch,
a song,
a presence;
joy in having what I cannot live without–
other people to hold and cry and laugh with;
joy in love,
in you;
and that all at first and last
is grace.
