Our Blessed Life: Fall’s Golden Splendor

dsc_0730ew-titleAmong the group of bloggers that I have followed for several years, quite a few say that fall is their favorite season. While I can’t choose a favorite season because each season has its special and unique appeal, I most certainly do love fall. Having lived most of my life in south Florida, where evidence of seasonal change is nearly non-existent, I am acutely tuned in to the autumnal changes here in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains.

It is a very special blessing to live in this beautiful area. Each time I step out of my door, I am treated to this view from our front deck.

I feel a sense of urgency to soak up this fleeting beauty while it lasts. Mr. MT Nest and I take enjoy taking drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway and winding mountain roads to absorb nature’s autumn splendor. Last week we took several of these drives…photo safaris,  as he calls such excursions.

“I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.”

    I love autumn’s beauty, too. I think we South Floridians have a greater appreciation for God’s handiwork this time of year. Your photos are beautiful.
