Twilight in Autumn

There’s something lovely about twilight in autumn; the stillness, the serenity of it seems to penetrate into the heart.  As the last glow of day dims, and the shadows recede into nothingness, a peace enters in.  O, that peace that delights the soul and gives evidence that God is near, willing to hear our deepest desires and to share something from His heart with ours.

How strange then is the irony of a loneliness which wells up within.  Perhaps from memories of days long gone, or the silent wish of reliving those moments – a hug, a laugh, a shared dream.  A sigh wisps away from slightly smiling lips and awakens one to the present moment.

Ah, twilight in autumn; where mercy surrounds, and the hope of a new day containing all God’s goodness awaits in the wings.  You are a gentle reminder to pray and to breathe, and I cherish you.

Good day, friends, and welcome to Leisure Lane, with a special welcome to Leisure Lane’s new followers.

I hope the above filled you with the beauty of Autumn.  Perhaps it persuaded you to slow down and take a cup of tea, while you ponder the delights of a new season.  I hope so.  I’m continuing to work on my newest romance book, River Runs Deep.

Thank you for strolling by today.  Until next time, may happy days abound!

Marianne
