Monday Morning Offering: 10/26

  Image: George Mendoza

Good morning, good God!

I offer you my thanks
for your divine imagination,
your playful wisdom shaping mother earth,
her seasons and their beauty...

Who first knew your plan, O Lord,
for shorter days and autumn chill
to sap the summer's chlorophyll
from leafy, shady boughs?

I see revealed in summer's loss,
in each tree's seasoned fading,
your glory: gold and russet,
purple patched and crimson crowned...

A gift of longer nights,
these hidden hues now bared reveal
your hand in every branch
bestowing blessings on the breeze...

Fall's light now filters softly
through leaves aglow within:
so simple, your fine artistry,
delightful and divine...

When my heart's hope is fading
paint my soul in autumn hues,
illumined with that holy light
whose only source is you...

I offer you my thanks, Lord
for leaves that sigh and fall
and pad the pathways I wander
on my journey in your grace...


I first posted this MMO 10 years ago and each year since
I've reworked some lines and phrases so this is the latest edition!
