  1. Anna,

    I, too, love love love Autumn. Right now it should be in the 50s to 60s. It has plummeted down to the 30s & 40s. Autumn allows me to more fully see God’s love & grace. Just gaze at the mountains in all the splendor & color like David’s coat. I have felt buried in the daily grind of working long hours, cooking, volunteering, church, etc. It wears on a woman. But thankfully hubby & I are off this week to enjoy the majesty & grandeur.

    Praying for you, family & person with health issue.. May God send His healing touch. May He also calm yur anxious & worn out soul.

    Blessings 🙂

    • I for sure did not get our coats out fast enough for the temperature drop! I wrote this piece several weeks ago, and just a few days ago we too had a good plummet (finally!). Thanks for the prayers for my family member; we’ll take all the uplifting. I appreciate it.

  2. “Even when it flies, the time is His.” That is going in my Bible. The older I get the quicker time goes and the seasons turn. Yet it’s comforting to know our God has it all in his hands.

  3. Yes, my friend and Sister in Christ, you are certainly right. The One True Living God who changes our earthly seasons can and will “Change Our Hearts”.

    We just have to remember to yield our hearts to our Maker. He has already placed Eternity in our hearts. So we are ready to embrace the new seasons of life along with its amazing new adventures.

    My prayer is that I never forget that I am a traveler and my home is in Heaven.

    Enjoy your day Everyone.

    With Gratitude,

    Your Sister in Christ

  4. Beautifully written Anna. Thank you. I love the 4 seasons…and Fall is beautiful
    My husband and I are in a season of waiting. A season we’re not really used to. Health and employment. We are blessed in our life, but this is different. God has pushed “the stop and wait button” I feel stuck “in the waiting” like I’m at a crosswalk waiting to cross into “my great plan” To put “my season into go”….
    God directs To be still. To trust Him. To stay put. To wait. To be at home 24/7!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO
    “….and yet it was actually the exact, perfect, just right time….”
    If we were in a regular season, we’d be at work. I wouldn’t be able to help my husband drive to appts and mow the lawn. So we wait. Wait for His crosswalk to turn green. His plan for our season.

    Monday Blessings \0/

    • That’s such a perfect illustration, Janet – stop and wait. Isn’t that just it though?! Praying peace as you sit at that light, supporting each other in the waiting.

  5. I love all seasons. Even when it’s very cold. I just wrap up extra well. With my vest under my winter blouse and long John’s on under my trousers to keep my legs that we bit warmer then my hat and scarf with my gloves. I all cosey then my coat as well. Especially the snow so lovely and so white. Even though it is so cold it so beautiful to look at. Plus walk in it with your winter boots on. I thank God for them all. That he woke me up to enjoy each season no matter what the weather doing. I dress up to with what the weather is doing. Say thank you Lord I can if need wrap up and get out in it. If a nice warm day wear my shorts and sandles for that kind of weather and put on sun cream to project me from getting burnt. Plus look at all the beautiful summer flowers that are out then. I also love autum that I walk through the leaves and look at all there beautiful colours. Here the rustling nose they make as walk through them. It so lovely. I am so blessed by God I can do all that and it makes my heart glad that I can. When there are people who can’t enjoy the difference seasons of the year that God gave us for what ever reason. So I am blessed. Thank you Anna for today’s reading love it. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Enniskillen Co.Fermanagh. N.Ireland.
