“Autumn is the season I love here in Belgium. I am always fascinated how God created this fall season with its beautiful colors of leaves and trees while birds are chirping, busy preparing their nests and food before the winter comes.
“Leaves with their different shapes change their lovely colors, especially when the sun rays flash them and dry them from rain showers and morning mist.
“Even though the weather is becoming more grayish and colder, autumn is becoming more beautiful and awesome when I am enjoying the calmness of nature sounds.
“As I love this autumn season, I used to pick and collect fall leaves from the garden and on the road while walking, for I love to dry them between the pages of my books and paste them to our yearly homemade Christmas card to our family and friends to share with them how God is good to us, giving this splendid season.
