Listening for November's song

Falling leaves sing November's song. When November's days are sunny and serene the leaves seem to sing in soft whispers as they are gently released from tree branches. Dreary, windy, cold, dark days bring fully orchestrated music while whistling winds tear at the remaining leaves, seeming to rip them from their branches and send them scattering in all directions. As I gaze at this show of nature's power I think of the music of Beethoven.

November is the prelude to winter's song. November helps to prepare all God's creatures for the long, sometimes bitter, cold days ahead. November is the time when all creatures seek shelter and gather food to survive the coming winter. I am November's friend. It is the month which welcomes all kinds of weather. We are given a preview of the days to come.

For now, I turn the music up to soothe my soul. I will serenade the season ahead as I wait for spring's song to appear.
