This weekend the weather has felt much more like early fall than late summer. Although, I love summers, I am excited that autumn is right around the corner. Here are some of my favorite things about fall:
*leaves turning colors
*hot cups of coffee on cool mornings
*opening the windows in the house
*fall smells--apple and pumpkin in particular
*fall colors for fingernails and toes
*sipping hot apple cider with lots of whipcream on top
I really appreciate living where there is a major distinction between the four seasons (although I must admit, I do wish winter lasted only 6 weeks). With each season, there is a renewed sense of excitement and hope. It's a reminder to me that there is definitely an amazing, loving God (Universe, Allah--whatever name you prefer) who has much bigger plans for us than we can ever imagine ourselves.
