On, In and Around Mondays - Frosty

Nearing the end of September and Autumn doesn't linger here. Forecasts began to call for frost early in the month, and we would wake in the morning, not sure what we would find.

Yesterday there was no more questioning.

And so it's time for cleaning the garden, pulling up vines that have withered. The vegetables don't seem able to tolerate the cold.

And yet flowers blossom still, colours dance in frenzied winds that bluster strong. Soon even they will hide, leaving the blacks and whites of winter.

For as long as Earth lasts, planting and harvest, cold and heat, Summer and winter, day and night will never stop. Genesis 8:22 The Message

Frost, already? I'm glad we don't get it this early in my part of the country. (Though we've been having some record rainfalls.)

What kind of flower is it in your post? It's interesting. I guess I'm not familiar with it.

I pray that God will bless you richly and give you eyes to see the abundant life he has for you. (Sometimes we are looking at the down sides and have to look harder, peer back and remember, to realize we really are rich beyond measure, that we really have had an abundant life in Him!

I'd be glad to have you stop by my site.
