Autumn Gold comes to visit me
about this time of year,
From the murky waters of the bayou,
I see her along the tree line
as the cotton picker pulls from the vine
white balls of snow.
But little did I know,
she ushers in the first day of the Jewish new year,
the anniversary of Adam & Eve,
The creation of man is now here.
Autumn pushes the hue from her sweet face
to reveal her red leaf lips
Her auburn hair of apples dipped in honey
hidden from view her Shofar ears
Can you hear
the trumpets blast their hundredfold
harvest of gold?
A new beginning is near
as she speaks of the fore-told coming year.
Like sparkling wine with amber hues of green and gold,
she repents and give thanks to Our Father, Our Creator.
And His streams of blessings penetrate us
and His prosperity permeates our souls
as she reads to us the Aaronic Blessing,
a harvest of autumn gold.
Aaronic Blessing is found in Numbers 6:22-27 (Amp) -- . . .The Lord bless you and watch, guard and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). And they shall put My name upon the Israelites and I will bless them.
So I give thanks today in Christ and I pray that you and yours be covered with God’s anointing and favor for the coming year in Jesus' name. Amen
