It is an early Sunday morning in October. The air is cool but not cold. There is a slight breeze. The sky is blue and the sun is warm. As I walk the street of my neighborhood, I am awestruck by the beauty of the trees. As the trees prepare for winter, the nutrients are starting to go deep in their core. And what is left is this beautiful gift of brilliant colors. For months, I have observed these same trees cloaked in a green wrapping and now there are brilliant gifts of color for a short time period.
I wonder how in our lives there is beauty in the life transitions from season to season.
Today, I choose to look for the beauty that is being reveled in the transition of the season.
