My favorite time of the year

It’s here! Fall! It’s my favorite time of the year! I embrace the cooler weather and beautiful colors of the season’s change.

I got thinking a couple of days ago how much I look forward to late September every year and how I look forward to it more and more as I age. Maybe it’s the heat and humidity of summer, but, even more than that, I look forward to the calmness and restful nature of this change of season.

The first fire in the wood stove, sipping on hot tea in the evenings, and cozying up with a comfy blanket are some of my favorite times of all!

Don’t get me wrong, I love garden season and the freedom to go outside anytime and not have to put on the coat and boots, but, nothing gets me like the first chilly mornings of fall.

As I have aged, I find I don’t tolerate the heat quite as well as in my younger years. I find myself staying inside during the summer more than the fall and winter. I will gladly put on the coat and boots to get outside and work!

My husband and I both love working outside during the colder months. We come in and warm up by the fire, have a cup of tea, and feel like we can get back out and work some more. But, in the summer, we come in and have some ice, but, as soon as we go back out, we’re needing the ice again, ha ha!

This may come across as me complaining about summer, but, let’s be honest, I look forward to summer after a long, cold winter.

This brings me to a point I am wanting to make. As humans, we often find it very easy to complain about whatever state or season we are in. We think the next thing is the better thing. I am so guilty of this. And, you know, sometimes the next thing is the better thing. However, always looking for the next thing robs us from the moment we are in.

My hope is that as I age and grow as a Christian, I will remind myself to stop living for a future time and fully live in the moment that has so graciously been given to me by God.

I hope this post will encourage you and remind you that you are not alone if you look forward to one season over the other. We all look for what’s next. Let’s just try to take time to look around and appreciate the season we are in!

God bless and see you soon!

  1. Mary Just has that plain ole what you see is what you get. I love it and feel like I know her and could walk in her kitchen any time and start up the conversation where we left off last time.
    I hope this makes sense.
