Quote & Psalm – The Timely Glow and Shine of Autumn

I find this C.S. Lewis quote very timely:

“Now is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It won’t last forever. We must take it or leave it.” ~ C.S. Lewis

Here are a few timely photographs of the foliage transformation to Autumn colors in my Mid-Atlantic state of New Jersey. These photos were taken at Alcyon Lake Park in Pitman, New Jersey. The accompanying verses are found in Psalm 144:12-15. (The Living Bible Translation) The words of the Psalm, written by King David, 1000 BC, are another timely reminder of what to hope for in our country and in countries all around the world. Let the glow and shine of Autumn warm your heart.

Psalm 144:12-15(TLB) A Psalm of David:
“Here is my description of a truly happy land where Jehovah is God:
img_3604-2
Sons vigorous and tall as growing plants.
img_3634-2
Daughters of graceful beauty like the pillars of a palace wall.
img_3626-2
Barns full to the brim with crops of every kind.
img_3627-2
Sheep by the thousands out in our fields.
img_3615-2
Oxen loaded down with produce.
img_3609-2
No enemy attacking the walls, but peace everywhere.
img_3602-2
No crime in our streets.
img_3610-2
Yes, happy are those whose God is Jehovah.

And to that I add my own, “Amen.”
