He Changes the Times and the Seasons

Have I mentioned--I really love Fall! I have been so much enjoying the changing colors, the Fall scenes with pumpkins, and pretty leaves, etc.

I was out the other day, and wanted to take some pictures of some of the beauty around me, but it was cloudy, and misting on and off and not a good day for pics. So I settled for these that I have.

Daniel 2:21 says "He changes the times and the seasons" I actually enjoy all of the changes, from Fall, through Winter, Spring and Summer--even a little snow! It's wonderful to know that it is not something man-made, but His creation, placed here for our enjoyment.

Daniel 2:21 also says, "He sets up kings and deposes of them". In light of our current political climate, that truth is also re-assuring to me. (But I digress, and that's probably a topic for another time.)

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of god; the skies proclaim the work of His hands

Psalm 8:1,3,4 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him...?

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:...He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Beautiful pictures! I especially love the Burning Bush...we have a hedge of those here and they are turning such a beautiful shade of red.

Enjoy your weekend!

Fall is my favorite; still to see much change over here, but I'm ready! With each new season, God brings changes to my heart as well. This is the most contemplative season I know, and I'm greatly looking forward to God's thoughts and my thoughts therein.

Blessings, friend.

It's been raining here in Ohio too Donna...really like the photo of the moving water in the creek.

Oh Donna such beautiful verses you chose! And I am so happy to discover that I am not the only one who likes winter. I sometimes feel like a black sheep amongst summer lovers! I love all of the seasons as well. I hope your rain is gone. We had it for three days straight. But today was beautiful. Although I like the rain too! Love Di

I love the changing seasons also, and see beauty in all of them, but fall soothes my soul. I am hoping we get to experience an Indian summer this year here in Mich. but it doesn't look to promising.It is cold here.. 24 last night. Brrrr.

Hi Donna...
I may get to see some of these beautiful sites for myself. Jack and I are probably headed to the mountains for our fall break from school.
I wanted to stop in and say hello and let you know that I am thinking of you.

My favorite pic is the last one...we have a pond with a stream in our yard and it looks just like it! I love fall too! I feel blessed to live in a state where we get all 4 seasons. In fact, tomorrow the forecast is calling for some rain and a bit of snow. But next week, 60's may be back. Have a great weekend!

Somehow I missed this post earlier. I am loving fall, also. I just cannot get enough. I love driving around marveling at the trees and going for walks. Even though we have had a few days of rain, it has still been pretty. I love the verses that you quoted. Blessings

I liked all of these pictures, but especially that large pink bush!

Antwerp's library WAS a Carnegie. I believe I saw it on a cornerstone.

It's good to be back. We're back, but NOT back. I rearranged the living room inspired by my one night stand in the B&B....we went out to eat at Triangle Park & Gary worked in the garage. It was a satisfying Friday.
