This morning was the end to daylight savings time. It has been quite a few years since we have been in the US to celebrate this glorious event that gives us one extra hour’s sleep!
But, with daylight savings’ at a close, our nights become longer; our dark evenings start sooner; and winter seems to set in. I have a hard time relinquishing this season of beauty.
Yet I loved watching our children today after church as they celebrated autumn in their own way. The huge sycamore tree in our front yard has been shedding its expansive leaves over the recent weeks. Each gust of wind brings a few more tumbling down… the perfect objects to be chased and caught by six eager hands. The pictures speak for themselves as our kids lived in the joy of the moment, with no concern about what comes next, and entertained all of us immensely.
