Fall in NC

For several weeks now I have been watching and waiting for fall to really come, and this week it finally happened. It has been just beautiful. On Wednesday I had gone out to exercise and only got to the stable before I saw a group of trees so beautiful that I had to turn around and come back to get my camera. I was taking pictures as I made my way back to the beautiful trees by the stable, all the while listening to “Redeemer of Israel” by Lex de Azevedo. (The soundtrack of my life recently.) I was pleasantly surprised to realize how much more I was enjoying the music as I stopped to take pictures along the street. I reached the trees by the stable just as the music was reaching it’s climax. As I listened I thought “wow, this music is even better than ever today. It’s somehow more intense than normal.” I was sure it was because I was so focused on the beauty of the world around me. I framed my shots while thinking that the bass parts were more full than I ever remembered hearing before—almost rumbling, they were so deep. And then, right as I took the last picture, a dump truck drove by.

Ummm…I guess that explains the rumbling bass!

I had the same feelings as I was driving to the dr. yesturday. Some of the trees are so beautiful, both in color and in their natural shape, that I was amazed at the process that Heavenly Father made. Much better than every 28 day periods. Ugh.

I am jealous. Cindy, your picture made me a tinge homesick. Can you believe it? I am glad that you will still live there even after Dad and Ramona come here, so there will always be an excuse to come back.

You know you are always welcome to come visit. Although Dad & Ramona may tell you that you don't want to visit on a hectic week like this one was--adding in swim lessons for the littles has really made us insane...
