Season of Thanksgiving

After last week's freezing temperatures, I'm sure this is probably the last rose of summer in my garden. It's a perfect reminder of God's faithfulness  in bringing each season for us to enjoy. As summer becomes a memory, we're enjoying the harvest of crops and the anticipation of winter rest to prepare for spring growth. I find thanksgiving in each season.
The second verse of the old hymn, Great Is Thy Faithfulness says it all:
Summer and winter,
and springtime and harvest,
Sun,moon,and stars in their
courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness,mercy and love.
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.
Great is Thy faithfulness,
Lord,unto me!

                               Blessings to you and your family in this season of Thanksgiving!
