The Colors of Autumn

Each season has its own glorious colors. Autumn, even in Atlanta, comes with scarlet and gold and blue. It's too easy to be so busy that the colors come and go unnoticed. How sad to think that we allow the "tyranny of the urgent" to keep us from enjoying the fleeting beauty before us! Each season with its colors offers reasons for us to lift voices of praise to the Creator who has given us this gift of color, eyes to see, imaginations to understand, and hearts to appreciate the wonder of it all.

the Reason for the Season- a puzzle

I enjoy collaborative art projects, and this particular project will be part of my Christmas decor. The artists who worked on this altered puzzle came from all over the US. I love that it all works together even though the only perameter on the project was the title: The Reason for the Season. It's a little illustration of how God uses his children. We are all so different, yet we become a single work of art called the Church. Each element is important and tells part of the story. Any missing piece is obvious. Put together we are whole.
