November is Here...My Favorite Time of Year ~ Landscapes {Northern S.F. Bay Area Photographer...Shelley Hohe}

I am so excited that November is here! November is a month that we can look out side and see all the beautiful fall colors. It amazes me every year when i see each and every new color that is different from the year before. God is such an amazing artist, He put so many fine touches on this earth and November is one of His Masterpieces. Think about how many different rich colors there are during the fall....yellow, orange, red, green, brown, burgundy and many many more. I love taking walks outside during this time of year, walking along as the grounds are blanketed with leaves, noticing all the rich color pallets, feeling the cool crisp autumn air, the scent of wood burning in the fireplace and of course a nice warm pumpkin latte in hand. Mmmmm could it get any better.

During times like this i just want to rejoice and thank God for all He has given. He has given so much...He gave His son Jesus to die for our sins and that through His son we can have everlasting life. Just as the colors of leaves change, we are given a chance to change as well. What ever is not going right in our life, we can come to our Father in Heaven and lay all of our burdens at the foot of the cross. As the trees change color and let go of their leaves so can we with our burdens, our struggles, our problems. With Thanksgiving coming soon, it is the perfect time to look around at all we have and give thanks. Thank you Lord, this really is my favorite time of year!

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

~ Psalm 100

It is good to praise the LORD
and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.

For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD;
I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
How great are your works, LORD,
how profound your thoughts!

Psalm 92:1-5
