There is so much beauty and majesty this time of year – from the colorful leaves to the pristine, white snow. It seems appropriate that the Savior of the world would be called the “Firstborn over all Creation”. Jesus did not first arrive as a baby in a manger. Jesus was not created but has always been.

Jesus was asked a question about marriage in heaven: If a man dies, having no children, and his brother is to marry his wife, whose wife will she be in heaven?

Even the weather has an air of serenity about it. But mostly, I love the Autumn scents. I wandered by a candle shop the other day where they were having a sale – two candles for the price of one.
