Oh, the joys of the seasons! How delightful they are! Reminding us of God’s wisdom and care – all things in their time! I am encouraged at the outset of this beautiful fall season – that a stormy season in my own life is just that – a season! Here today – replaced by another tomorrow – with new hopes . . .
So, on a cool, dreary fall day this week, I had the simple joy of being off from work and able to give my attention to something that I’d let slide these few weeks – a trip to the farm market for my pumpkins and mums!
This is the newest market in our farming community – where every farming family seems to have a roadside stand. Here, at Bergamos, I knew who I’d meet inside. My dear old friend – Saralyn, and her mom, Dolly! Saralyn is the farmer’s wife – Ed – I went to school with him. Saralyn and I have many fun youthful memories that we share. And, today – a new one! My first visit to her family’s roadside stand – actually quite an impressive fresh vegis and Italian food store.
To be sure – fresh broccoli came home with me for dinner – and a few other staples. But, the big buy – my mums! Love how they look on my front step!
A simple joy . . . fall flowers, old friends, a cozy day off . . . joyful in new seasons!
