Kidron in the Fall - Dave Ross


Sitting here staring at this screen is about the most uninspiring thing a person could do on a day like this, but we'll hurry and be brief with this writing, and then head outside once more to enjoy the scenery.

We waited for this - the time of year when the leaves are turning many shades of yellow, orange and red in our part of the world. What a wonderful gift it is to be able to see and enjoy all this natural beauty that surrounds us in the month of October.   I thank Creator God for these things.  If you haven’t been out and about yet, you really should take a drive to see for yourself. Consider our area if you are able, but if not, allow me to share some pictures that were taken in the places I generally walk, east and southeast of Kidron.

I wanted to cover more ground this morning than usual, and hit a few additional roads in our neck of the woods, so I jumped into my car and headed east on Jericho.  I don’t remember steering it actually, because I became so caught up in the surrounding beauty that the car was pretty much on auto pilot.  It seemed to read my mind though, and made quite a few quick stops to allow for capturing the scenes of autumn that are making beautiful backdrops for the Amish farms.  The farm houses and barns are rustically attractive any time of year, but this is like putting the bow on the present. What a gift it is to live here in Wayne County Ohio. I do not take for granted the fact that my home is surrounded with enviable scenes of bucolic beauty.

Sometimes it is almost necessary to pinch myself to believe it is real. Perhaps you will be inspired to get out of the house and see for yourself.  If you do not live in our area, you are most welcome to visit.  We should have another week or so of gorgeous fall foliage.
