November

Well, after the last few days, I need to get back to basics.
I can't believe it's November already.
I can't believe the direction our country just headed.
I just need to remind myself that God is in control of all things and everything will work out
to His Will.

Ok, no more election thoughts. I'm done with the whole thing, so.....
********************

I just love November.
The leaves are beautiful & falling, I start planning the Thanksgiving feast, we have two birthdays to celebrate and of course....starting to plan for Christmas.
Let's just take a break before all of the chaos insues and look around at God's beauty that surrounds us everyday.


These are of a lake that's not far from our house. Just beautiful!

I had more but once again, Blogger's not cooperating.

Hope everyone's enjoying this beautiful Wednesday.

Be sure to leave me a note & tell me your favorite thing about November.

I agree it's time to put the election frenzy behind. One of my favorite things about November is looking forward to having family and friends gather at our house to celebrate Thanksgiving. The time spent together that day is so worth all the preparation to me--it's priceless!

Hi Duchess,
Yes, it is good that God is in control isn't it? ~♥~
November is my "slow down" month-Do I slow down? Yes, but only to spend more time crafting, sewing, decorating and baking-My kids love this about November too. They love all the goodies I make.
Your photos are beautiful-All the leaves have fallen from most the trees here in Seattle it's starting to get colder but I am loving it.
Have a great day,
Robin~♥

I really love how November is a little slower than the hectic October and December. I need to force myself to slow down and enjoy it!

Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays and I adore fall! I agree with Darlene, the weather finally gets cooler, the air is brisk and the beauty that surrounds us as the trees change color is simply the best.

My favorite part of fall is exactly what you photographed. The beauty of God's landscape! Great pics!
