Fall is in the air and I love everything about it. It seems like such a special time, with God’s mighty hand on everything! With the cooler weather, juicy fresh apples, leaves turning beautiful colors of red, green, orange and brown, creating a carpet of beauty in the yards, yes it is a very special time of year! It’s the time we usually take our annual road trip to the mountains to get fresh apples and as we gather our apples, we smell the aroma of sweet apple cider and oh, let’s not forget the fresh fried apple pies! Yum, yum! Yes, I love this time of year… before all the hustle and bustle of the holidays begin. God is so good to us all the time, but I think He knew we’d need a season such as fall, to just relax and reflect on the beauty that only comes from Him! He is so faithful, every day!

While enjoying all that God has given us this time of year, brings to mind one of my most favorite hymns, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.” If you’ve never heard this great song, I encourage you to try to find it on YouTube and listen to it. The words are such an encouragement to me of God’s promise to us every day. I leave you with the words to this great favorite…

“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father, There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“ Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest, Sun, moon and stars in their courses above, Join with all nature in manifold witness To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“ Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, Blessings all mine, with 10 thousand beside!

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“ Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Lyrics: Thomas Obediah Chisholm (1866-1960)

Music: William Marion Runyan (1870-1957)
