It’s getting to be that time of year…that beautiful, blissfull, favorite time of year…
The cooler weather, the crisp leaves, the breathtaking colors. They all take hold of my heart and keep it captivated as I’m reminded of God’s creativity in the changing of the seasons. I’m fully convinced that He made Fall especially perfect to remind of us His beauty. There are so many fun activities, so many memories that go along with this season. Fall festivals, pumpkin patches, state fairs, apple picking, jumping in leaf piles and riding with the windows down… don’t even get me started on the smells. Cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg spice, it’s my favorite season! (There’s also that beautiful thing called Alabama Crimson Tide football, Roll Tide!)
I’m becoming a list person. I like to make to-do lists. Some are in order to keep my life from being crazy chaos, but other lists are for fun, to ensure that I don’t let myself get too overwhelmingly busy and actually slow down to enjoy the season. Thus, the reason for this post: my electronic Fall to-do list.
Must-Haves/Do’s for Fall 2010:
- Alabama football with my family every Saturday
- Matt’s 23rd Birthday
- Cagle’s Dairy Farm for the North Georgia Corn Maze
- Pumpkin Carving with my Fiance
- Apple Picking in the North Georgia Mountains
- A ride through the country side with the windows down
- Boots shopping
- Scarf wearing
- Camping Trip with my friends
There’s so much to look forward to! I don’t want to miss a bit of it. Way too often, I’m always looking forward to the next big thing. But I’m beginning to learn that the Lord has intended for me to not just count down, but to live every day with the intent of glorifying Him through being fully aware and alive in the midst of never-ending change. That’s it. That’s my thoughts today. So go out there and enjoy Fall everyone! It will be over before we know it.
