Harvest Time - Fresh Baked Pear Pie

It’s the third day of Autumn. The temperatures are dropping, the sun takes its rest in golden skies, and the fields are being harvested. We’re surrounded by reminders that this beautiful season is upon us.

Apples and pears are being picked, friends and neighbors are getting out their scarves and boots, raspberries are ripe, the grape jelly has been put up from this year’s harvest, the trees are well on their way to a full bloom of what is fondly called Autumn colors.

Just as there is a time to plant there is a time to pluck up what is planted. “For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

There’s something peaceful and exciting about each new season – as one goes, another comes.

We look back at what God has taught us and brought us through and look forward to what He has in store for the future. We see His merciful hand at work every step of the way, knowing that His works are good and His ways are righteous.

With each new season – and each new day – comes a reminder of the faithfulness of the Lord. “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22) “But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:21-23)

His promises never fail.

    You have such a neat blog! Did you design it yourself? Or use a program? If so, what program? Also, how do you get blog buttons at the side, such as Pinterest and Flicker? Thanks! ~Tashia

    Hello. I am new to your site and checked out your embroidery patterns. I have learned to really enjoy doing this hand craft now that I am a momma to two growing blessings. *smile* Have a great week and I hope your October went well. *smile* I have added you to my updated blog reading list and look forward to learning more about gluten-free cooking. I know very little but that it seems more and more people are gluten-free so this may be a great thing to know more about. *smile* Thank you for having this blog and I hope you will keep it going. *smile* Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!

    These pictures are beautiful, Emily Rose! Truly God’s blessings to us are freshly abundant in each new season, and it is good to recall His faithfulness to us. Jesus is such a faithful Shepherd and Guide. “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits… who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.” (Psalm 103:2,4)
