Early Autumn is still green as I walked through the park. More green means a little longer life before the leaves turn colors and die. The end of the trees growing cycle ends with vivid colors as the end of a day often brings beautiful sunsets. The end of a life cycle can be sad and also beautiful, especially for a Christian. The end of this life brings a new eternal life.

A burl on an oak tree along the trail has been decorated through the years with a face that looks like Cecil and his Afro hair is still green.

A clock tower in Red Bluff was made as a replacement for a building that had a clock tower that burned up. At the end of October daylight savings time will end. The time will fall back one hour.
For those who have fallen away from God, it is time to give your life to Jesus Christ, who is the redeemer who forgives your sins. Jesus is Lord, the way and the truth that the watchtower cult does not believe in.
