Brisk weather, barefoot walking in the cool grass.  Who needs shoes?  Autumn all around me springing forth – hues of red, orange, green and gold.

The children playing in the dirt, making mud balls and pies and stirring the earth up into whatever they wish.

Pumpkin cake in the oven – throw things in a bowl and stir recipe – follow remnants of known recipes, use flavors that will blend, don’t measure anything that would be too easy – the end result will be fine and it was good!

Proverbs 3:1-7 the theme of our reading today, “…and He shall direct our paths”.  That’s a promise and what a comfort it be and should.
