Autumn Leaves

A Collection of Scriptures, Meditations and Prayers

“Here is the purpose of this book—to give you a place of shelter in your daily life. What follows is a set of meditations, inspired by selected Scriptures from the Old and New  Testaments, with the hope that wherever you find yourself in your relationship with Jesus Christ, of the faith we followers of Jesus call ‘Christianity,’ you will come out the book’s end  having given a portion of each day during the autumn season to time set aside with Him.”
– From the Introduction of Autumn Leaves
