Fall Family Pictures

We just can't get enough of those gorgeous fall colors!
So the other morning we headed out as a family(the ones at home with us) and we took family pictures and also some photos of the children. We do look a little cold on some pictures as it was still early just as the sun was coming up. This way we got the early morning sunshine on the leaves,making them look even brighter. Although it was hard not to squint :)
Now after having some wind in the area alot of this beauty has been blown to the ground. Seeing the trees go bare again always puts a tinge in my heart. We know that this is what we will be looking out to for the next 6 months or so. But I am so thankful that we have a creator who takes care of our seasons and gives us each one to enjoy to the fullest.
We need to make the most of the time that God has given to us. Time and again we see and hear how God takes away health or life and our lives are just not the same anymore. So often in our everyday lives we would like things to be different or how we wishes we could change things. But we are not in control of any of these things and need to fully give God control of our everyday lives.







Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,

Sun,moon and stars in their cour es 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!

The Lord is faithful, are we faithful to Him?
