October Runs Its Course

As October runs its course, Autumn colors are in the fullness of their flair. Autumn sunsets light up the sky in the early evening, as the days grow brisk and shorter.

Mornings also have their glories along the Blue Ridge, in the Shenandoah Valley, with angles of sun on the mountains and woods of bright leaves:

Full daylight brings out all the variety right here in our neighborhood in town:

It's a glorious celebration of exuberant color:

And bright fire warms the air in the countryside after nightfall:

As the days and weeks near the end of another year, we look forward to our preparations for a beginning that is ever new:

"The Word was made flesh...." Annunciation (from Atrium tracing card)
