Aww…Monday’s Music Moves Me

Happy Fall Y’all!

The theme this week at Monday’s Music Moves Me is Autumn. I don’t know that my music will feature Autumn as the main topic so I am going to post a few images that I captured recently. The peak fall colors here in Northwest Arkansas typically arrive in late October or early November. The best colors can last from one to three weeks, then the wind blows and all the leaves fall off the trees and winter begins. We had a l-o-n-g summer and I was still mowing the lawn the first week in October. In one week we went from a high temperature of 85 degrees to a low of 33. The next night we experienced the first light freeze of the year and that stopped the growing season for the lawn while setting the stage for the commencement of autumn color. A few trees began to make the transition, so I grabbed the camera and headed out to capture a few images.

Okay, that’s enough fall photos for now. Stop back by on Wordless Wednesday and I may have a few more.

The crisp, short days, the final blaze of color, and the thought of a warm fire in the fall put me in a mellow mood. A little over a year ago our oldest grand daughter intorduced her dinosaur of a grand father to John Mayer. ‘Nuf said.

I’m going to close this set out with an inspirational song by a Christian artist that reminds me of John Mayher. Jason Gray’s music has a lot of Mayher influence. I have met Jason and he is a great young man with a message of hope. This is a song of praise for the life that we have been given by our creator and we should not waste it. We are reminded that we are not promised tomorrow, therefore, we are indeed living on borrowed time. Scripture tells us that before we were placed in our mother’s womb, God knew everything about us (Jeremiah 1:5). The Good Book also states that it is appointed to man to die once and then face judgment (Hebrews 9:27). We do not enter heaven based on our works. Our place in eternity is determined by what we do with Jesus Christ. Have a blessed week.

  2. Driller,

    I can relate to that mellow feeling that fall inspires in you. That’s precisely the sentiments that envelope me this time of year. I appreciate the introduction to John Mayer. I like his style and certainly will check out more of his mewsic. I hope one day my granddaughter will share with me the mewsic that moves her. BTW, you’re not a dinosaur. 🙂 Also loved that shared Jason Grey this morning. He’s also new2me. Our trees are making the transition around town, too. I managed to capture a few images with my iPhone over the weekend but the sky was too grey to make the colors pop. Maybe next weekend will be better. Have a joyfully, boogietastic week, my friend!

  3. Our summer was cool, but lots of rain. The lawn never stopped growing and we mowed until mid-October. Finally the trees were beautiful, but we got a hard frost and most of the beauty drifted to the ground. Weather can do some weird stuff. Beautiful fall photos.
