Autumn Gold

Autumn Gold comes to visit me

about this time of year,

From the murky waters of the bayou,

she appears.

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,

Rosh Hashannah,

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

Blessings Terri
