A beautiful day

It was a gloriously beautiful fall day in the UP today. I spent it on the road with a friend travelling to Marquette for shopping, talking and stopping for lunch. This time of year never ceases to amaze me with its beauty. What a wonderful reminder of change and the necessity for all things to grow, then to age, then to die and to live once again. Its amazing how nature reflects the very character and wisdom of God. He told us that we cannot see the majesty of nature and deny HIM.
I feel a certain sadness too, knowing this beauty will end and the trees will be bare and the contents of the woods will expose their skeletons in the "closet" and the cold winds will replace the warm. But there are days of beauty yet...the awesome first snow, cleansing, purifying, and covering up the cold hard ground.
Yes life is to be appreciated in all its seasons, its comforts and discomforts, "to everything there is a time and a purpose under heaven....".
