To every thing there is a season . . .

Fall LeavesToday there is no denying that it is fall – it’s chilly, the sky is overcast, and the wind is all blustery . . . it’s blowing the leaves everywhere!

The fall leaves always remind me of change; how each year we cast off the old foliage, start over, and allow for new growth.  In church this morning we talked about how today is the last Sunday in the church year.  It’s easy to become stagnant in our lives, and I’m hoping this year to really take the challenge personally to focus on new growth and development.

Plus, the combination of a really fall day and the thought that Advent starts next week has gotten me super excited for Christmas!
