Reflection: Let’s think about Maple trees. Just Maples. Autumn Blaze. Japanese. Sugar. Yellow. Brandywine. Flame. Just to name a few. And mostly maples get their names from the color of their leaves in the fall. Then there are so many other variety of trees that make front yards, ridges and mountains just explode with color this time of year. Isn’t it just gorgeous? Some folks make sure vacations to New England coincide with the changing of the leaves. Yes, it is just gorgeous. In New England, in our yards and all around us.
The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Take time to enjoy God’s creation.
