I believe the seasons are a reminder…
You see, Fall and I used to have this love, hate relationship.
I used to LOVE to HATE Fall.
Well, at least that’s how I used to feel.
To me, as a child, Fall meant back to school. It meant homework, book reports, projects, and going to bed early.
As an adult, during my 13 years of teaching, it meant good-bye summer vacation and hello grading papers, answering emails, parent meetings, and 30 minute lunches (if you were lucky).
Now, as a blogger, Fall means something TOTALLY different.
It means decorating, projects, creative ideas, recipes and ways to help others decorate their home for Fall.
It means home tours, wreaths, and all things pumpkin!
So, as I’ve been decorating, I’ve been burning pumpkin spice candles and dreaming of cooler weather.
I no longer look at Fall the same as I did before.
Fall is about change.
I’ve learned that, as tough as it may be to experience change, change is usually a good thing. Through change, we grow. We learn more about ourselves. We become new.
It’s a process, just like going through the seasons.
So, as we head into Fall, and the trees begin to lose their leaves, I will choose to LOVE, and not HATE Fall.
I will choose to watch the process and remember that God has it all under control….
….a reminder from the seasons.
Do you see how change in your life can be a reflection of the seasons?
PS- As I mentioned last week when I shared my Burlap Ribbon Fall Wreath, I have lots of Fall decorating ahead of me as I prepare for an upcoming Fall Home Tour on the blog, so I’ll see you tomorrow with another Fall project!
