I love you, Dadda!
Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.
Do you know what i love? love with every figment and fiber and thread and molecule in my body? It is FALL.
I LOVE the fall. love, love, love, love, love, love, love, LOVE it!
I love the orange of pumpkins and the gold of crunchy leaves; i love the crispness in the air; i love how starbucks starts to serve pumpkin spice lattes; i love that Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas are all within just a few months of each other; i love how fall slowly freezes into wintery blissfulness and mugs of hot cocoa and the smell of cinnamon and pine trees and sugar cookies. I love the chill in the air, freshness of the sky, the silhouettes of the trees as they shed their leaves, the October moon, and the way it starts to get dark and we can cozy in for the evening a little bit earlier.
It's beautiful in life how we can have so many beginnings and endings, you know? These cycles are important. They remind us that we can continually begin again... there are always new beginnings and seasons in which our hearts can change.
and for me, fall is maybe the most profound reminder of this. When the sun rises and it is all of a sudden distinctly fall instead of summer ... in nashville, it seems to have happened just over night... I am reminded of the power of an unchanging, mighty, merciful, and steadfast God who allows second chances and periods of renewal every. single. second.
and praise for that.
happy fall :)
