Happy first day of autumn! My favorite season, finally arrived. As Panera and Starbucks compete to draw in customers with tantalizing pumpkin-inspired holiday treats, the air is growing nippy early at night and early in the morning. When I walk around the lake at night to pray and enjoy the moonlit waters, the air is no longer full and sultry with summer's embrace. Now I can smell the fullness of herbs, the crispness of the leaves, and the briskness of the breeze. This has been one very long, but very fast year. I was thinking about the verse where God talks about making everything beautiful in His time. From the very dawn of creation, he was inspired to craft seasons, shifting solar patterns, and the standard movement of time. In heaven, there will be no time. No seasons, really. It's just this wonderful, special gift God has given to us, now. As I watch the holidays pull near, I am so thankful to God that he is giving more time to reach out to others, to make a change in this weary, hopeless world. What are you doing with your time this autumn? Make it count! =)

  1. Your post stirred up my Autumn taste buds and I ended up dashing off to the kitchen, peeling an apple and then slicing it up and putting it into a little pan with 1/4 c. water, 1 TBSP sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and letting it cook till tender. Then I stirred 1 tsp of starch with 2 TBSP of cold water and stirred it all together for one minute. Hot cinnamon apples! Looked sooo good, I poured it over vanilla ice cream and yum, yum!!! Thank you for putting me into the Autumn swing of things :).
