It is October here now and the leaves are showing it well.
Tomorrow Lauralea and I are off to a pastors and spouse retreat for a few days and I've worked hard this year not to be busy leading different activities for it. I'm just making sure there is a space for morning and evening prayers and running a prayer station if you can call it that, during our communion evening, and one little ten minute piece during a service. Lauralea today mentioned that she'll have to rethink the retreat with me being available this year.
And we've been going pretty hard since mid August, actually really hard, so this will be a good couple of days away.
Then we come back and get ready for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend next weekend, and then later that week herself and I shall fly out to the warm sunny beaches of the United Kingdom for two weeks of celebrating 25 years of marriage together. But more on that later.
For now, some beautiful photos of Autumn moving through the area we live in, fondly known as The Field.
