I used to compare the fall colors in our state to other
states, like Vermont or Tennessee or Michigan, and
felt rather sorry for myself that we didn't live in a prettier place.
But then we moved to the desert in Arizona and Mexico,
where there is no fall to speak of, and when we moved
back here, suddenly, it was all so much prettier!
I really don't know what I was thinking!
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant
nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain,
but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
1 Timothy 6:17
