Something New

If you live in the north east, colored leaves are nothing new to you, as a matter of fact, by late fall they can become quite a bother...but we love the color year after year. It is just the raking that we can tire of quickly.  Oliver is playing in these dry and colorful leaves for the first time and shows his delight.  Of  course most children relish playing in the leaves year after  year. It is the adult whose attitude has made them a little less than awesome.

Attitude can mean everything in many situations.  Lets nurture good attitudes, especially toward other people.  The Bible instructs us to love others as we love ourselves. We make mistakes, and we must realize that all people do. Don't judge your fellow man by  one mistake. Try to understand where he is coming from, where he has been, what he has experienced. Try to love him, as God has instructed us. Learn to forgive. It will mean a lot toward getting along with others and in avoiding heartache, both physically and spiritually.
