In the dark stillness

November’s moon reigns on high

Stars hide from view

I was fortunate tonight to be able to walk outside about 6:30 pm and see the moon in its giant fullness. The sky was in total darkness except for this gigantic moon. The photo I took with my cellphone doesn’t really show its beauty and size. It truly was a sight to see.

Amy Nieskens of the Old Farmer’s Almanac guide said: “Centuries ago Native Americans kept track of the changing seasons by giving a distinct name to each Full Moon – names we still use today.

“November’s Full Moon was known as the Geese-going Moon, the Frost Moon and perhaps the most well known, the Full Beaver Moon.

“Traditionally this is the time of year that beavers are preparing for winter and also the time to set traps before the swamps froze, to ensure supplies of warm winter furs.”

Jar with James 1:17 scripture

Treasures abound.

Many gifts are waiting

In my Father’s house.

Only good and perfect gifts

Are waiting to be found.

Tanka

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17 KJV

Autumn’s Bio

Painted leaves, Autumn leaf lady
“Miss Autumn” leaf art by LeonasDesigns

I am Miss Autumn

Dressed in vibrant colors

Creating crisp brisk breezes

Inviting leaves to dance

As maple trees clap

Their red and golden appendages

Beneath cloudy skies

And furry grey squirrels scamper

To gather the oak’s treasures
