Good-Bye Summer!

Good-Bye Summer!

Fall leaf that is dying

 James 1:17 (KJV) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Good morning! As I sit on my front porch sipping my morning cup of coffee, there is a very warm breeze gently blowing.  Obviously, the heat of summer has not yet realized that we have gone through the Labor Day Weekend which is the general consensus that summer is officially over!  Saying good-bye to the summer is not something I am actually relishing at the moment! The summer season of warm weather actually never lasted very long in Georgia this year as we had a really long, cold winter and mild summer! Somehow, my mind does not want to focus on our beautiful fall seasons, but rather, the thoughts of going into another long winter which is not really appealing to me if you know what I mean.  As usual, though, we will suck it up and deal with it when it comes!  The key is knowing that God is always trying to bless us as we let go of the old and embrace the new!

I do love the fall season in Georgia, the weather is spectacular and the North Georgia Mountains are breathtaking when they are in full color!  I love cooking hearty soups and bake goods for my family.  I especially love making pumpkin rolls, and homemade Apple butter.  As I look out past my front yard today, I do believe we are having an early fall season in Georgia this year.   Already the Dogwood leaves in the past week or so have turned to a light golden and orange.  There is something about the seasons changing that causes anticipation in me to know that seasons in my life are changing as well.   One thing I have learned, whether things are good or bad, they will pass.  The key is to know when to let the change happen.  When do we let things fall away from our lives like the fall leaves that tumble down ever  so gracefully? I believe we know when things must fall.  We become very discontent and begin searching for newness.   It amazes me that even when things seem wonderful, that the Lord is always trying to bless us with better. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to hold on to things that are dead or dying like fall leaves, but rather I want the Lord to be able to bless me with newness!
