Fall is one of my favorite seasons! So, in honor of the start of this new season, allow me to share a couple fall-ish thoughts, favorite things, and ideas with you!
There are so many things about fall that I love- from all things pumpkin to the crisp cool air and changing leaves. Living in Florida means summers are real, real hot and by the time August comes around I am ready to start feeling the cooler weather- unfortunately we have to wait until almost November until it cools down into nice breezy and chilly weather, but when September rolls around, fall decorations go up and pumpkin bread is in the oven! There is just something about coming home after a long day and lighting those delightful candles, putting on your favorite sweater, and watching a movie or reading a book while snacking on some fresh baked pumpkin bread that makes a heart full of all the warm and fuzzy feelings!
“Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.” -Elizabeth Lawrence
Take some time to cuddle up in your favorite cardigan and blanket with a cup of tea and reflect as we enter this new season. Maybe you just entered or will be entering a new season of your life. Maybe you can reflect on all of the times God has protected you from harm. Maybe you can reflect on the many blessings that are in your life. I encourage you to take a few minutes out of your day and pause, watch the leaves turn.
“The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let the dead things go”.
Fall is a perfect representation of what change looks like, one day the trees are bright green, and you start to notice a yellowed leaf fall to the ground here and there, and before you know it the trees have changed their color. What about you, how have you changed? What do you need to let go of? What are the dead things in your life? I encourage you to embrace fall, not only the fun fall activities but also allowing yourself to let the dead things go in your life.
Happy Fall, Apostolic girl!
