Now it’s up to you to pick us all up and put us away till next year.
You can just blow us off somewhere unless…
…we get stuck in the nooks and crannies.
And now we are wet which adds another dimension of challenge to get rid of us.
We are mostly off the huge Maple in your neighbor’s yard. Just one more good windy day and the branches will be bare.
The day has come and now you can clear the rain gutters of the last remaining leaves.
You leaf laborers have earned yourselves a good meal off the smoker and out of the oven with all the colors of Fall. Ribs off the Traeger, roasted vegetables, coleslaw, jalapeno cornbread, and barbecue beans.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry for the leaves are gone till next Fall!
Thank you to Rattlebridge Farms, Amy at Love Made My Home, and Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.
And if laboring over leaves wasn’t enough I’m now having some physical therapy to help with the extreme tightness of my IT Band that has been giving me some grief. Sad but true you have to exercise and try to endure more pain to get rid of the pain and here is one of my new torture instruments.
This is called The Stick…hmm…catchy but it works like a rolling pin to work out the tightness of your muscles.
So…thank you Lord for seasons, for the strength to deal with the fallen leaves, for the enjoyment of good food that nourishes our bodies, for physical therapy to repair and strengthen our bodies and for Spiritual therapy to strengthen and anchor our souls.
Hebrews 16:19-20 (ESV) ~ 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
