Autumn is a fabulous season, right? Sure, we put up with a few days of rain, but the scent is breathtaking. Crisp leaves. Fall flowers. Cedar and pine trees radiating their scent. Even a walk on mushy leaves is refreshing. I love the fall.
One day when driving to Belgrade, Montana I saw this tree. I pulled over and waited for semis and other traffic to pass, for the sun to be just right, etc. and snapped the photo.
Wow. Talk about a complete story of God's creation. Rocky mountains in the background, plump clouds overhead, and one tree, (on the east side of the Rockies this is considered a forest!).
I printed this one out and hung it in my living room.
We just never know when God will surprise us with a scent or view or sound that will stir the spark inside us. You know the one. It causes you to want to stay where you are. Take a deep breath. Cock your head to hear better.
Brice Anders the main character of my October 2017 release debut book had a similar experience. Life just seemed so difficult. So much had gone wrong, yet when he really needed it, God opened his eyes to a similar blessing. Stories like Brice's are good to read. They remind us that we are not alone in our struggles and there is a good at the end. CLICK HERE AMAZON LINK

God has given us so much this year, right? Take a moment and reflect on the bright colored moments from this year and give a shout out to God for His goodness. My list, seriously when I make the time to think of it, would take way more than a moment!

CHRISTMAS WITH THE ENEMY
By Mary Vee
Samantha Windermere, a successful marketing intern, is lured by her parents to leave a hectic Chicago life for one relaxing week in the Windermere/Tucker family-share lodge. She arrives in a Rocky Mountain blizzard before anyone else and is scared when the family enemy walks through the door.
The generation-old disagreement between the Windermeres and Tuckers over a priceless antique toy sparks when Sam’s parents arrive a few hours late and find Hank. A family Christmas just can’t be celebrated with one of them on the grounds.
Sam’s boss calls with an emergency from the Chicago office to the archaic lodge landline. She must attend a meeting tomorrow evening or her money-making account will be given to her rival. With no cell phone coverage or Internet at the lodge, city girl Sam must ask family enemy and mountain man, Hank, to guide her through white-out conditions to find an Internet connection.
Blizzards, avalanches, bear attacks, snowmobile accidents, and deadlines become minor concerns when Hank’s parents arrive unexpectedly, igniting the toy train feud and exploding any chance for Peace on Earth.
Have a great fall. Read some good books in those early dark nights. I've shared some with you that I hope you will check out.
