Downtown McMinnville charm
Week two of Festival of Leaves. A few days of wind and rain contributed to leaves on the ground. I lack no enthusiasm, when it comes to capturing falls leaves and color.
I am a happy Festival of the Leaves participant. It will help me, to keep my focus on the beauty of Fall, and all of the heartwarming blessings of the season. This was taken yesterday at a local park in the community of McMinnville, Oregon. Thank you Dawn Miller for hosting, once again..

a fashion statement
they won’t make the headlines
they don’t cost hundreds of dollars
or it depends on
who is wearing them~
Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious to God.
Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, and our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water..
I honestly was thinking that today was Sunday. I blame it on the thick smoke and dark days. My heart breaks for those that have been affected by the fires. We are to weep with those that weep, and rejoice with those that rejoice. Life is moving in a rapid pace. Too much change all at once. Hearing, seeing what is disturbing and sad. I will continue to lift up my eyes to the hills, from where, my help comes. My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalms 121:1-2
