Welcome, September. You have come unexpectedly. So quickly. And yet, 2021 has been a long, long year. Something not usual for one who has reached the winter season of life when time passes in a blink of an eye.
Time to think about fall harvests, pumpkin decorations, apple pie, and cider. A time of cooling air, crunch leaves underfoot, neon yellow and red coats on trees. The realization that Thanksgiving and Christmas are getting closer. And a new year.
What will each bring? For me, I will focus on the happy possibilities. The anticipation of family gatherings, and the first snowfall. The memories forged in love in the past as I decorate this year’s Christmas tree. The closeness of God in the warmth of my home. The promise that the future will be even better when I leave this temporary home.
God is good. Life is good. Hello and welcome, September!
Lifting my cup of tea and wishing you warm and loving hugs.
