The pictures are to help us feel that we are really able to experience the turning of the leaves, the brisk Fall weather, and the beauty that God has given us in all parts of our country.
I am praying much for our country and feeling a bit drained by all the news and political fighting. I want to shout out: "Just think of the common good" and stop trying to use the power we have given to our elected congressmen to try to control in light of the party's interests and not of the entire people of our country.
I really try to stay away from politics in this blog, but these last two weeks have tried my patience. We are the ones who elect our officials so we need to pray a great deal for them and maybe do a better job of discerning the right candidates before we vote. And please do take responsibility for voting!
Here is a word for the day:
Every time we feel satisfied with what we have, we can be counted as rich, however little we may actually possess.
Alain de Botton
