I’m getting pretty excited! It's only two days until October. Those of you who’ve been reading my blogs for a while understand my enthusiasm. Fall is my favorite time of the year. This most magnificent month of October awakens my soul. I am transformed. Alive. Energetic. Happy.

Can’t paint a charming portrait
Or sing a lilting song
But I can tell you what I love
If you’d like to tag along.

I love a cool crisp morning
When autumn comes around
The twinkling of an early frost
And leaves upon the ground.

An azure sky excites my senses,
A pumpkin wet with dew
A sunny, cloudless afternoon
A field of cornstalks, too.

When mountains are emblazoned
With colors warm and bright
Their splendor can’t be hidden
Even from the night.

As autumn leaves are falling
Each one a different shade
Who wouldn’t marvel at the sight
Our wondrous God has made?

It emerges early in October
This awe-inspiring view
I love it, oh, so very much
I hope you love it, too!

I could not agree more! It's a beautiful time of year that is incredibly too short to enjoy. Only two months away from the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.

Yes, Chase ~ the Christmas season will soon be here ~ the one time of year when everyone treats others with love and good will. Can't wait! Can you?

This is so beautiful peggy. Everything you write has such emotion running through it. The reader feels it and wants to keep reading. jeanette

Wow! You did it again, Peggy. You peel back the layers of the outside you and let us see all the excitement inside that you have for this precious October. Would that you could have an October every other month all year.
