When did the tree turn ruby red?  I walked outside with Paddy early this morning as the dark was lifting from the pond and realized our oak outside the kitchen window was solid red leaves.  Before me on the ground was a carpet of red fallen leaves and still a bounty above on the limbs. 

The palette of fall is alive with wonderment and strong vivid hues of reds, oranges and yellows. Such will be my painting.  When we were in the midst of summer just two months ago it seemed like today was far away.  Cooler temperatures, rain and trees bearing up the regal autumn colors.  God's touch in our lives keeps change constant.  Change is something you can count on in your life and God is there with it. His light even shines in the darkness that sometimes seems to creeps in.  When we feel lost in shadows or situations, we need only close our eyes and envision His light bathing us with His love. 
This day is Veteran's Day.  This day is a day to honor all the men and women over the past two centuries who have fought to preserve our freedom.  This day is celebrated as well for special birthdays of my oldest friend Janet  aka JJ in Austin, Texas, and for Terry's deceased brother David.  (I will make a low fat Italian Creme Cake for us to share over the next few days in memory of David.  We miss him so much.)
That thought takes me back to the loss of Ben, Terry's Dad in September and stopping in prayer to allow God to remind us that death is but a CONTINUATION to the next change. We will remember him today as he served in both the US Navy and the US Airforce.  My Dad served in the US Army.  We all have someone near and dear to us that has given of their life to defend and serve the citizens of the United States of America. 

"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?"  Psalm 27:1
