1,000 Gifts

"The trees down through the woods filled all summer with sun and now they spill with it.The trees of the fields, they dance now with the glory before Him. In October, what is real is seen: even the trees burn with primeval fire for their Maker... Now is not the time to be demure in joy.  In October any wonderful unexpected thing might be possible. Joy isn’t ever in a season, but in the way we see. His Grace, His mercy, His love — saturating everything."
