The Winds of Change

Autumn has fallen, It's like it almost comes out of know where. Last week, I looked out upon the mountains and I spotted the color splashes. When I saw this I couldn't help but to get a wash of exciting cause and sensation. So, I planned it in my mind to get a better look, and headed up to Sundance.

As Stephen and I walked the familiar paths and we stood on the bridge where he proposed marriage, I perceived it to be like the pages out of some romantic story book- minus the Japanese tourist taking pictures.

We conversed of the winds of change in our lives, the type of conversation that is as deep as the red crimson maple leaves in the fall.

How life is ever changing with children, jobs, economically, spirituality, physically. We go through photosynthesis. The scientific term photosynthesis can go into great textbook depth all just to understand the change in color of the fall leaves. Photosynthesis which means "putting together with light" Is what allows the leaves to turn the beautiful colors they do.

On the way down the mountain and the perfect day it was, I rolled my window down to take in the spiritual moment. My eyes fixed on God's painted canvas of such beauty and then let the wind of change rush trough my hair. Knowing life is sweeter when we can appreciate change.

We loved seeing those fall colors too. It was breathtaking! I love driving up the canyons and want to explore more. Your writing is beautiful, what a great post.
