This Fall has been spectacular in Southern Ontario. I’ve had this conversation over and over during the last several weeks. The colours seem to be brighter than in recent years, the trees are holding on to their leaves longer than usual, the light shining upon all those shades of gold, copper and crimson is breathtaking.

I hope you have a chance to get outside and enjoy some time in all the natural splendour of this season. To breath fresh air tinged with a slight scent of woodsmoke. To remember that even in a difficult year, there is extraordinary beauty to be found. And that the simple pleasures of this season are a gift from God.

And if, for any reason, you are not able to get out and enjoy it all, let me share some photos with you with the hope that they will brighten your day.

Until tomorrow, dear friends, may you know that the gifts of God are all around you!
