September Favorite Things

September is usually a wonderful month all of the world since it is a collar month around the equinox.  Here in the midwest, it is the last hurrah before long winters, hanging on to the last of the sun.  Below are some of my favorite things in September that give me joy.  Once you slow down to notice, you see God's treasures and surprises are everywhere.
