The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation

Harvest Time

We are so blessed to be able to watch the seasons change from our back window. We know Fall has truly arrived the afternoon that the combine and grain truck show up. There is something so final about hearing the hum of machinery and watching the golden fields stripped bare in preparation for winter. It really feels like we have crossed the threshold between waning summer days and full-blown Fall now.
This marks the beginning of cozy family evenings spent reading or playing board games together. Bringing out the flannel sheets and wool sweaters. Mowing the lawn for the final time until Spring. Preparing our hearts for winter-truly a hard time of year in this part of the country.
So thankful, so blessed.


  1. I love fall too (minus the allergies...). My favorite things are the amazing colors in the trees and the crisp, cool air -- so invigorating.

  2. Mmmm...we missed to combining of the corn-field next door that we call "ours." (-: But I think it was worth it to go on vacation! Pretty soon we'll get the tractor and some old chicken food bags and go find the corn the farmer missed...a fun part of fall, if you ask me. (-;
