For the beauty of the earth,
for the glory of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies;
Lord of all, to thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.
Folliot S. Pierpoint
Driving to work this morning I was awestruck with the beauty of the earth. I am adjusting to more light as I leave the house, with the end of daylight savings time, it is now light when I leave at 6:15am.
This morning, I just smiled all the way to work. I don't know if it was the wet spring, or the few cold days and then the warm ones, but the trees are wearing the most brilliant colors I have seen around here in a long time. Everything just looks so beautiful. Before people get handy with their rakes, the earth is blanketed in a brilliant quilt of reds, yellows and orange. It is truly awe inspiring.
The sky to this morning seems to be a blanket. The clouds are carrying some rain, but the sun barely peeking through them this morning made the earth even more beautiful.
So I raise a glass of cheer to autumn.
