Autumn. I love autumn. I love the colors, the smells and the cooler temperatures. I love the deep cool blue skies and the smell of wood smoke. I love that it means Thanksgiving and Christmas are not too far off.
What I love most about autumn is that I feel closest to God in this season. When I sit and listen to the birds and the wind in the trees and when I look at all the different colors of the trees and flowers…the golds and reds and purples, I see Him in all of it.
Just this weekend I was sitting on my steps (in a sweater, did I mention I LOVE sweaters!) and I was praying. I have been struggling with some pretty big issues in my life lately and I was asking for guidance. What came to me, clear as a bell, was Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I AM God." I have given this scripture to other friends who have gone through troubling and challenging times in their lives.
This time, God gave it to me. And I will be still.
