Fall is HERE!

It's HERE. I don't think we can deny it any longer. Fall is here friends. The cold weather, wind, leaves changing and falling! I love fall. I love the colors, wearing sweaters, and all things pumpkin. I love having a hot drink in my hands and the fact that fall means CHRISTMAS is coming! (and just wait till I tell you how much I love Christmas!)

My one concern about fall is that as exciting as it is now... things outside go from brilliant red and orange to brown and grey. What is fun and exciting will soon become dreary and drab. Fall will fade into winter in the blink of an eye. And before I know it I'll be dreaming of green grass and daffodils and tulips.

Isn't it interesting that life goes in cycles like the seasons? We have great beautiful times that we love and then we go through a season of change and things look dark and bleak and we are longing for a spring time of our souls.

I'm hoping and believing that this year I'll work on appreciating each and every day. Last night some dear friends and I shared about asking God to show us his blessings each day. I think that my friend was right. If we ask for him to show us that means we'll have to be looking. If we practice this now in the season that is fun and exciting and new then in the winter times, the dark times it will be easier to seek out what God is doing in our lives.

I'm thinking of you all tonight. Praying for each of you. We are all in different seasons but I'm praying that you will find God's blessings wherever you are!

  1. Thanks for that Shan! I have been praying that prayer too. Even in times where it seems like nothing is going on, that God will speak to our hearts and show us His true blessings in our lives, especially the ones we take for granted!
