The first day of Autumn, a great wind blew in, as if on cue that Fall was here. The extremely warm days turned into a cooler one. Children who were loathe to go outside because of the hot weather and "too many bugs" ran back and forth outside with abandon, not minding the strong, blowing wind or sand in their faces.
The trees shook with the forceful Autumn wind. Windows had to be shut down to keep the sand from blowing in. No air conditioning was needed because God supplied His own.
The sky darkened and a storm came---one of those short, silly storms where the rain beats down hard and the thunder rumbles for just a few minutes. Then the storm passed and we were left with the realization that Autumn had just swept in, just like it was supposed to.
This week I read a favorite book to my children: The Year At Maple Hill Farm*. I have read it to them for many years--six now. We enjoy looking at the pictures and words of the ways the seasons change throughout the year on a farm.
I thank God for the change of seasons. Fall is my favorite.
