I can't say I'm necessarily looking forward to Wisconsin winter, although I am definitely glad to have a short commute. But what I can say for sure is that fall here is at least as beautiful as it was in the town I grew up in.
I may be about 2-3 days past the peak, and pictures don't do it justice, but we took some photos on our walk today. Breathtaking colors! Enjoy!
|This is right behind the church. |
That red tree, while beginning to lose its fullness,
has taken my breath away every day this week.
|We have a church member who decorates the church--outside and inside-- every season. |
This week I'm preaching on Genesis 2.
|Well, the coat's big but it has to last her all winter.|
|Someone needs to work on their parallel parking skills. |
|Maic remembered a tradition his family had of filling contact paper |
with leaves and putting it on the window. I love how it looks.
Well, this pastor mom is off on a much-needed retreat as soon as church ends tomorrow until Tuesday afternoon. The retreat is for Wisconsin clergy, and while I look forward to meeting many of my colleagues, I look most forward to some time to gather myself and resort my priorities, so that I come back to on Wednesday as a recovering workaholic. It's too soon for me to be this exhausted.
