Fall Tour....

We have had Awesome color this fall!
The oak trees were green up until last week when they turned colors to
amazing shades of reddish orange and some yellows..  

Off on a country road....

Kyla took this pic while I was driving down the road..

They had apparently planted a cool weather crop here and baled it.
But the green with the other colors....
Well I could have stared at it all day!

Mostly Oak Trees.....

About a mile out of town.....

Heading into town...

Almost there.......

On Steele Bluff overlooking our town!

Our local lake..
Otherwise known as a Giant bend in the river!
They worked on it a few years ago and cleaned it up..
Now its a very nice place to go!


The other view...

In those trees is our Grocery store,
part of downtown and a local feed mill..

Part of the residential area...
 I just thought the colors were so bright this year! Every time we drove some where it was like Wow Look at that! However.. I can see its slowly being replaced by bare trees... All the pretty leaves are being blown off and slowly but surely taking on their winter look.. Creeping in here and there.. I am not ready for it.. at all!! However.. Time marches on and I certainly cant stop it..
 I had a thought while listening to the minister today in church.. He was saying how that God Spoke everything into existence.. That is the Power of God.. All he has to do is speak and its created... However.. Man... he formed from the dust of the ground in his Own Image and breathed his Own breath into Man so that he became a living soul... Its amazing that HE so carefully created us.. Genesis 2:7.... He formed animals out of the dust too but he didn't breathe his own breath into them...
 I am so thankful for God's many blessings!!! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
