On this warm and windy Thanksgiving Eve my house smelled of cinnamon and spice and everything nice as two loaves of pumpkin bread baked in the oven. It evoked a feeling of coziness and safety.
And yet another reminder of how much I have to be thankful for.
Inevitably – as it always is in nice weather – the back door was open and I wandered to the back yard so I could enjoy a few relaxing minutes. In addition to the delectable aromas wafting outside I noticed a red tinge to the sky.
Another one of God’s beautiful pieces of art was evident for all to see. The sun was setting and the sky was lit up with those brilliant colors that make you want to stand still in wonder at the majesty of it all.
The colors were changing by the second and within ten minutes the brilliance had dissipated.
Another reminder to savor the little moments when and while you can.
On this, the last night of the amazing hues of autumn, (before the Christmas colors take center stage) I couldn’t help but grab my camera so I could remember the moment.
Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
