I love Fall. I know how basic this makes me sound and I’m totally ok with it. I love nearly everything about this season!
I have started to call my morning walks through the neighborhood my walks with Jesus. I pray and sort things out. I count my blessings. I recall that morning’s scripture or devotional. I am being kind to my body and clearing my head.
I was thrilled to feel the brisk air as I made my way up from our little culdesac. I know this is a strange thing to be excited about, but the air was cold enough to make my ears hurt! I was pumped. This might have been my last t-shirt weather, morning stroll of the year.
I love how colorful this season is and the coziness it calls for. I love eating off my husband’s pie plate at Thanksgiving and having bonfires with the kids. I love me some apple cider, y’all. I love how still and quiet the mornings are.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
I have a house covered in white pumpkins. I have a favorite chunky knit sweater. I love the movie Hocus Pocus. I am thrilled to finally be justified in wearing the boots I wear all year. I am telling you, I am basic and basically in love with this season.
I love watching the leaves fall from the trees and knowing that something new is coming. Fall feels like letting go and making room for new growth. It is a visual reminder that I can breathe deeply.
This season always brings me much closer to Christ. I give it all away to Him. I am reminded that the resentments and worries in my heart are optional. I can shed them just like the trees in our yard shed their leaves.
I can fall into the arms of my Savior and make room for spiritual growth.
I made my way back through the neighborhood and smiled as I saw all the leaves my sweet husband would soon be complaining about. These were the little reminders that new things were coming. I think I may have even smelled cider.
Let go, Mama. Make room for all things new and good.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
