Note to my fellow 31 dayers: I know I am a little behind…since I jumped into this month of inspiring words a few days late. But I do promise you 31 posts. You don’t mind if they spill over into November…do you?
And sometimes… if I wait a day between… maybe it’s just to give a bit more time to savor what I hope are some “scarlet ribbons” for you… like the ones I shared in Day 5…
A Psalm of Autumn Praise
You speak to me, O Lord, in Autumn’s royal raiment;
You whisper softly in the treetops With the soothing, breathless sound of the sea in your voice.
“I have beauty for ashes in your life…
I am rising my glory over you
You hold my heart… for I make you a vessel…
and inscribe ‘holy to the Lord’ on yours.” +
You show me a season within seasons, O Lord; Trees that burst into flame and fizzle, like firework splashes against the sky that quickly…too quickly…burn out and die.
Others that take their time to glow… Brighter and brighter… As if time- releasing their beautiful bounty
Leaf by leaf
Blessing by blessing
Dancing, sparkling, pirouetting to carpet the ground gold.
I ask…but…when is my time, Lord? I am but a vapor on this earth… Will I ever see my dreams come forth?
You answer… “Do not listen to the lies…
I must be forgotten…
My hopes will never be…
Dreams have passed me by…
“Listen as I confide Cana wedding truths; Sometimes the best is held for last… See how I save radiant glory To burst forth as a final hurrah of joy; Spectacular beauty Reserved as afterglow sparkle showers that Shimmer Deeper… stronger… And linger long upon the heart.
“Trust to my dreams for you Dreams to give you a future and a hope.++
“Yes! My glory…is rising on you… And joy for every sorrow, Every moment that has seemed too long to wait.
Sometimes My best is held for last…”

As I write these posts in celebration of fall, I’m linking up with Melissa Michaels at her beautiful inspired room.net where she has many warm and lovely ideas to make your home fall-cozy - see her welcome page for31 inspired days, along with the rest of the “31-dayers” who are also sharing various month-long inspirations!
I’ll tag these stories under the category of “Autumn Leaves.” Let us open this seasonal book together to find those “roses” tucked within their leaves…
