Right In My Own Front Yard

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in
all that surrounds me.

must be open to it!
The Glory of Fall
It is all in the colors
And the joy it brings


Thanks be to God!!!


Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon for Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words  there to enchant and encourage!!! 


  1. What grand and glorious color you've captured, Cathy. Here, a few leaves are hanging on to maples and oaks and dogwoods, but they're looking pretty bedraggled. The color is tired now. We're reverting back to the muted, winter shades of evergreens and the way they stand out in relief against a gray, rainy sky from November to March or so, when the deciduous trees assert themselves again.

  2. Thanx for visiting me Cathy. Looked for your Blog everywhere. At last I found it. I hope and pray you and yours are well.

    God bless.

  3. Been under the weather and your words always lift me up Cathy. Blessings to you.

  4. The glory of fall in northern climes is the color, but in our desert, the glory is in the blessed coolness! Thanks be to God!

  14. So beautiful Cathy! I do hope you'll participate in the Gratitude Quilt this year… information about what it is and how to participate can be found @ this link

    If I already asked you and you sent me something, please forgive me for asking again. I'm trying to reach as many people as possible. I don't use last names and so when I look at the quilt so far and see the same first name more than once I'm not certain if it was from you or someone else with the same name.

  15. Fall! Joy and Rapture
    Fill my days, fill my night's pain
    Resurrect anew

  16. we have no Fall here
    i miss the bright colored leaves
    the South misses out

    thank your for your kind words of our Melly
