Ah the amazing crisp cool autumn air! It almost begs to be breathed with gusto! I get energized in the fall. All the sluggishness of summer "falls off" : P, and I am renewed with vigor!
Pumpkin anything is on the menu, and the aroma of cider meanders through the kitchen as I create masterpieces again.
Why I fall for fall: The air is comfortable, and rarely humid - even in New England.. he he he ... You can cook and "not bake!" The flies magically disappear! That alone is reason to celebrate!
With a new season are new adventures. When you purpose to find something new and exciting, it lightens your heart, and you dwell with an air of expectancy. As soon as I get through Halloween, which I don't celebrate anymore, I know that Christmas is coming soon. While I tolerate winter, I adore Christmas! Talk about expectancy! But I will get to that later.
Thanksgiving is another season favorite for me. I am discovering thankfulness. Let me tell you that if your heart is thankful, there isn't a lot of room for other junk to settle there. You DO have to be intentional about it, though.
I had a lesson from a dear friend a few years back- when she first got "Super Connected" to her Heavenly Father, she began to pray constantly, cultivating a thankful heart. It has carried her through some grueling storms, and what a life raft. It has been inspirational to me, especially in learning to stop complaining.
Then there are the fairs, apples, and Roger's Orchards. GREAT TIMES! Nuff said.
Fall, the A/C gets a break, and for a woman that runs like a furnace, all I have to say is one word.......... RELIEF!!!!!
So as you see, it really IS the best season. What is your favorite season, and why?
Have a great day, and remember to respond in kindness today... you never know what kind of impact that you might have on a hurting and lost world...
PEAS out!!! <3>
