Fall 150 Years Ago
Yesterday my brother and I talked about the fall scenery we are both seeing right now. He lives about two and a half hours away from us and says that the leaves have been at their peak for two weeks already. Around here, as I showed you yesterday, many of our trees are just beginning to turn.
We live in many places, so we are not all seeing fall at the same stage outside our windows; but on this Saturday, we can peek together at a fall scene 150 years ago. Enjoy fall through the eyes of artist Winslow Homer in his illustration entitled “Chestnutting,” as seen in the October 29, 1870 issue of Every Saturday: An Illustrated Journal of Choice Reading.
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food
will supply and multiply your seed for sowing
and increase the harvest of your righteousness;
you will be enriched in everything for all liberality,
which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.
2 Corinthians 9:10-11
