Goodbye August….

Fall is in the air on this last day of August. This morning, when I went out for my run, the cloudless sky and brisk temperatures opened my eyes.

Beauty everywhere as summer begins to shed her coat.

And the endless gifts continue…

Chestnuts fallen in piles around base of fence.

Fragrant honeysuckle beginning to yellow.

Morning glories in white and pink trailing through evergreen bushes… splashes of joy.

Blue heron standing tall as he stares past reflection into seamless pond.

Canada geese skimming through water, single file.

Moving day for neighbor: boxes stacked in driveway, two little boys winding in and out.

Sunshine through tree profile: light peek-a-boo.

Faithful furry friend in window, waiting for our walk upon return from run.

The sound water makes as it passes over stones, murmuring that secret language that works magic on my soul.

Butterfly…

Breeze gently blowing leaves.

Mangoes, kiwi, red raspberries…

A place to sit in the sun and eat my snack as gentle breeze kisses face and gives hair tendrils a tune to dance to.

I count my blessings, one by one…

Visit Ann over at Holy Experience to share more of the endless gifts.

    I felt as though I had gone on that run with you. We are surrounded with beautiful gifts, if only we have eyes to see. You most definitely do!
