October

“This was one of my favorite books when I was growing up,” my mom told me years ago when she gave me a copy of Anne of Green Gables. It quickly became a favorite of mine, too. I loved reading about the imaginative Anne Shirley and her life on the farm with Marilla and Matthew. It was one of those books I couldn’t put down and didn’t want to end. But of course it did have a wonderful ending with an inspiring quote (“God’s in His heaven, all’s right with the world”). I read and reread the book several times, finding out much later that there were actually sequels to the book! But I always liked the first book best. I still have my copy somewhere and when I saw this quote from the book, it made me want to read it again! 🙂

I can just imagine what Anne would enjoy about the month of October–the beautiful colors, the cool autumn air, the gently falling leaves. Hope you find many things to enjoy about your October, too!

God has made everything beautiful for its own time. ECCLESIASTES 3:11 (NLT)

    I used to love Anne of Green Gables when I was growing up too. I so miss Michigan’s autumn and the crisp air, the crunch of the leaves, the bountiful farmers markets and cider mills. I could keep going but as you can tell I am just a tad homesick!

    Anne of Green Gables is a must read for Canadians. I read the whole series as a child. The tv series with Megan Follows is wonderful. We have watched it many times!!!!
