Even though Fall’s great Beauty may be touched with poignancy,
we must partake of it with fullness of heart. We must honor the leaves
magnificent colors that shine so proudly in the October sun.
In life, glorious moments touch our hearts, and we wish they could last forever.
But, like the leaves, those moments, too, have their life cycles. In the end,
the Beauty of the leaves, and the Beauty of life’s moments are all gifts
from the Creator. They will live within our hearts forever.
