Falling Leaves

September 22 was the first day of FALL- but alas, it has NOT arrived in Mexico— yet. Preparing for it thrills as I hunt to locate my comfy jams and sweaters. A shopping list began to elongate with memories of an aromatic crock pot brewing a stew or a pot of Chili. Great expectations are swirling as CHANGE is coming. Out with the old and in with the new. Lovely leafs float to the ground and feather the earth. They mulch naturally under the hooves of horses in my hood. Our Fall colors include marigolds in the garden, then comes the poinsettias! EVERY SEASON invites a change. Letting it blow out the dust bunnies in my brain and on the front porch. Imagining roasting weenies and marshmallows over an open fire, all wrapped up as a cool breeze rosy’s up those cute cheeks. Chatting it up about this and that with any ear who cares to listen. LIFE IS GOOD in Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Each has its own unique CHARM.

Gather up a few friends and host a pot luck! Fascinate over all the collected perceptions shared and mix it up with some laughter. Dreary days drown —-as those hang over troubles simply burn up in a blazing fire. IGNITE gratitude and He will surely supply a hefty bounty of memorable divine encounters. Anticipate a surge of thanksgiving as turkey, cranberries, biscuits and gravy are soon coming. Being genuinely grateful for each season does stir the heart into a state of rejoicing. It’s the simple things like wearing sweaters, socks and tucking yourself into Grandma’s worn out quilt. Gulp down a tankard of a pumpkin flavored latte and feel your uncontrollable GLOW blow up into a humongus SMILE. Wear those cute gloves and chill out with fine feathered friends. November 22, 2022 was the first day of fall, but not for all — ANTICIPATION causes IMAGINATION to stir, and our Mexican version will arrive soon. Thank You God for Your faithfulness to shift us into whatever You have stored for us next.

We have a trustworthy Friend. “May I never forget the GOOD thing He does for me, He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. Let all that I am praise the Lord.” Psalm 103:2-5  Even when we are barely conscious, sleepy, tired or a mess—our Father delights to be invited in. We never have to clean the house, or take a shower to meet with our very best Friend. Jesus is available 24/7 – regardless of how we feel or look, He ever hopes we call on Him. He understands everything and He is never too busy for us.
