I hope that everyone is enjoying this nice Fall weather! It’s actually a new season; since my last post in July with temps in the upper 90’s and miserably hot and humid, it’s October and the air is dry and cool and very pleasant! As I was walking around our Pumpkin Patch, feeling the morning breeze and listening to the Blue Jays screeching territorially, I was so struck by the sights and sounds of the season. There were a few leaves beginning to fall from the trees overhead, leaves are beginning to change color, pecans and acorns are falling and I’m doing my best to release my tightened grip on control over things that I can’t control (which is pretty much everything and everyone!). The trees do it so seemingly effortlessly! At the right time, in the perfect way, leaves begin to fall; no conscious effort…they are just doing what creation does as part of God’s endless gift of life! They are just released…they fall…they eventually dry and die, becoming part of the earth…and are reborn into the energy of the trees roots that begins the cycle of life all over again. Pretty amazing! Let us use these days to release our cares, our concerns and our gifts of love and light back to the One who created us and continues to create life and love in and through us! God bless you! Enjoy this precious gift of life and all it’s seasons; changing, creating and causing life to be full, rich, abundant and eternal! I think I’m gonna go get some pumpkin pie…!
